Wehbe Elie Wehbe how was your sophomore season? My sophomore season was great. I missed most of summer camp, because I spent my summer in Lebanon. Regardless, I came back at the end of the summer and competed for tight end and defensive end, in which I started at both. I had the most receptions and yards on JV, and I was moved up for varsity for plays offs, and got a few snaps during our playoff Homewood Flossmoor game. What does football mean to you? Football means a lot to me. I started playing freshman year, and majority of my friends were made playing football. I’ve tried out many sports, but I can definitely say football is like no other. Football is the only high-school sport that incorporates strength, speed, coordination, and teamwork simultaneously. Not to mention, the bond forged amongst teammates is like no other, as being a successful football team requires everyone to trust each other to the high extent. I also have aspirations of playing D1 football, and influencing as many people as I can, whether it be strangers or my younger siblings. What should college coaches know about you? College coaches should know I push myself to the furthest extent possible, whether it be during the football season or offseason. As you can tell by my film, I play till the whistle ends and punish my opponents. I am willing to sacrifice a lot for football. I am doing track to work on my speed and acceleration. I am also staying the entire summer by myself to attend football camps, as my family is busy traveling.
What do you feel is your strongest trait on the football field? I would say my strongest trait is my athleticism as a whole. I explode off the line on both sides of the ball, and I emphasize good footwork in all the training I do. I move very fast for my size, which makes me a threat at any position I play. I also think my competitiveness is one of my strengths, not just with football but in my life entirely. I compete with my classmates academically, as well as with my teammates physically, constantly trying to maximize my potential. What position do you feel most comfortable playing on? The position I feel most comfortable playing has to be Tight End. I take pride in my run blocking, especially when I get to down block. I'm also comfortable running routes, as I find it refreshing to be able to block one play then run a route the other. I didn't pass protect much this season because my team utilizes me every pass play, but I am without a doubt an elite pass blocker. What goals do you have for yourself this season? This season I want to start at TE & DE, as well as get All State, for either position. I want to lead in tackles and sacks for my team. I also want to contribute to a large amount of my team's success. I intend on developing my skill set entirely, and getting a better taste of what varsity football really is. Most importantly, I want to develop a great relationship with all the current juniors on my team, while also inspiring the up-and-coming sophomores and freshman.
Who on Glenbrook South is ready for a breakout season? Glenbrook South possess very talented individuals and is very capable of winning a state championship within coming years. Teammates I expect to have an exceptional season next year include Tyrone Cotton III, Jacob Malek, Anthony Nassif, James Dooman, Jake Ruekert, Patrick Benedict, Alan Motoa, and lastly my brother Joseph Wehbe who will be a freshman next year.
