Dalton Brown Edwardsville Linebacker Class of 2024 5'11 190
Dalton Brown how has your freshmen season been so far?
Good. I am pretty happy with my play. I have had a hand full of tackles in all of our games so far. I’m very happy I have had the chance to start varsity as a freshman because i feel it will give me a lot of experience and help me out in the long run.
What does football mean to you?
Football is my life. I have been playing the game since I was 8 years old. I fell in the love with the game the first time I stepped on the field.
How has it been adjusting to the Varsity level?
Its been difficult but I’m felt like I have gotten used to it. The competition was a lot different then years before since I am mostly playing against kids older than me. In the beginning it was very fast and there was a lot more coverages and calls to learn. I felt that practice and my coaches helped with that a lot.
What do you feel is your strongest trait on the football field?
I feel my strongest trait in my courage. I don’t back down to anyone. Playing linebacker you get lots of lineman coming out to block you, and I feel like I do a job of delivering a blow to them so I can get off of them even if they are a lot bigger than me.
What should college coaches know about you?
I am a very dedicated. I spend everyday of the off-season in the weight room. I watch lots of film of my opponents before the game. I also go 100% every down and don’t take any plays off.
Remember Deep Dish Football Is Just Not About Recruiting But About The Love Of The Game Of IHSA Football
