Jack Getz Benet DB/WR Class Of 2026 6'1 165
Jack Getz how has your offseason been so far? It’s been great, really getting to know the guys on the team. I’ve been able to put on 15 pounds since last season I’m trying to put on another five before this season. The weight room has been really good and has been treating me nice. I’ve been trying to go to as many camps as possible and I was lucky enough to go to a illinois one this past week. I’ve been putting in a lot of work but there’s still a lot left to do. How was your freshmen season? My freshmen season was really good, I started on our sophomore team as a free safety, and a punt returner. Sadly I don’t know how many tackles I had, but I had two picks throughout the season many breakups and a surplus of tackle. I created a hudl video of my season and linked it in my bio if you want to check it out. I’ve been talking with coaches and it looks like they liked what they saw on and off the feild and I’ll be starting free saftey on varsity this year as a sophmore.
What does football mean to you? To me football more than just a sport, I came into freshman year scared I wasn’t going to make friends, but not only did I make friends I made a family with the team. It’s also an escape, whenever I’m bored, I go out and do drills, feeling down I go out and do drills, footballs my happy place and life, where my dreams come true. What should college coaches know about you? I have a lot of attributes that coaches look for, I’ve always been complimented by coaches for how coachable I am and how much I pay attention. I strive to give coaches my undivided attention, their giving their time to us so I’ll give my time and attention to them when they’re helping my better my skills and become a better player. I also have a really good work ethic, going to the gym every day, I’d it calls for it I’ll go twice a day. I get along with teammates and as a safety you have to be the qb of the defense therefore I’m a great leader too on and off the field. What do you feel is your strongest trait on the football field? I’d say my strongest trait is having that short term memory mentality, a lot of players struggle with it and if they make a bad play they get in their own heads and let it affect the rest of the game or maybe even their season. I’ve learned to have short term memory where you forget about that last play if you messed up and make up for it on the next, or instead of getting down on yourself for the mistakes. Learn from them and use what you learned heading into the next play and rest of the game.
What goals do you have for yourself this season? To pick up where I left off, it felt like I was getting into a really good rhythm towards the end of last season, and I want to start off with that energy right off the bat. I want to focus a lot on run support more and get a lot more tackles and learn to be the hardest hitter out on the field. I’m always going to strive to be captain and hopefully that will come my way after this season and after coach sees what I can do for the team. I hope to have a better season then last and keep doing that every season till I can’t play anymore. Last thing is to still make sure I’m having fun, I’m going to keep hitting the weight room doing speed training and just overall better my craft so I can make all my goals for this season come true.
