Danny Chung Marmion Academy Athlete Class of 2022 6'2 175
Danny Chung how was your Spring Season?
My spring season was definitely one I will never forget. Because of COVID, we were only able to play three games and our practices were very limited. We played against some good competition: Naperville Central, Fenwick, and Joliet Catholic. This past season I started at DB which was new to me and I learned a lot from it. We had a great group of seniors to lead us during the tough season.
What does football mean to you?
Football is very important to me. It is by far my favorite sport and has taught me a lot about life. I love playing and it is something I can always look forward to. Playing football is my favorite thing to do. It means everything to me.
What should college coaches know about you?
College coaches should know I am extremely competitive and hard working. I hate losing and I love the process of improving and getting better. I have also been through a lot in football and can overcome adversity. I am a student of the game and I try to learn as much as I can about attacking coverages with different concepts.
What do you feel is your strongest trait on the football field?
My strongest trait on the field is my ability to overcome adversity. Throughout high school football, I have faced a lot of challenges. Freshman year I was injured during summer camp and was the backup QB where I split time with the starter. Sophomore year I was the starting JV QB but I was only able to play in a few games because I was called up to backup during the varsity game. Junior year was the covid season where our team only played in 3 games and I started on defense, not at QB. These seasons challenged me mentally and helped me become a better overall player and person. It has changed my perspective and made me work harder than I ever have before. My mental toughness has improved and I feel like I can overcome anything that is put in front of me.
What goals do you have for yourself this upcoming season?
This season, I want to be a strong leader for the team. My goal along with the rest of my teammates is to go 14-0 and I think with the hard working group of guys we have it is definitely attainable. Most of our starters are returning this year. I also want to have a successful individual season and get my name out there to colleges and have the chance to play football at the next level. I want this season to be one that no one in the program will ever forget.
