Leo Scheidler Lake Forest Class of 2022 DB/ATH 6'1 175

Leo Scheidler how was your 2019 season? For me I would say it was a learning experience. I got pulled up to varsity to play corner back. Wasn’t sure how it’d go because I played quarterback my freshman year but was going to give it my best. I came off the bench the first couple of games so that I could watch how the older guys played and so when my name got called I’d be ready. I finally got to start against Lake Zurich and didn’t perform my best but just used that game to further better myself and improve. Playing DB at the varsity level was challenging but it really showed me what I needed to improve on during the off season. The 2019 season was a great learning experience as I got a taste of what it was like to compete at a higher level, as we also made it to the playoffs which was an awesome experience. So I would say the season gave me an idea of what I needed to work on in order to improve my game but also showed me what it’s like to compete at a higher level What should college coaches know about you? That I’m a work horse, I’m willing to put in hours, days, whatever it takes to get better because I love that step in the process. I love doing the work behind the scenes to get better and think that’s a unique characteristic to have. I’m willing to do whatever it takes to make the team as successful as it can be and win a championship. I’m a versatile athlete and can play on both sides of the ball which I take pride in. I’m never satisfied and I’m always eager to get better. I’m constantly trying to find new ways to improve my game and I’ll never stop. I’m a determined athlete and give everything 110%. I won’t let myself be out worked, and compete in everything. What does football mean to you? Football to me is more then a sport but also a place where I can be myself and truly express what I’m capable of. I’ve been around the sport all my life and fell in love with the game and learn to love it more more. It’s more then a game and teaches you about commitment, respect, and toughness and those characteristics you being with you throughout your life. The relationships you build on the football field are also truly special. The closest relationships I make are on the field with my teammates. Football has given me the opportunity to show the abilities I’m capable of and hope to carry that onto the next level How does Lake Forest look for the upcoming season? Lake Forest is going to be a team others don’t wanna play. The teams made up of guys who won’t quit until the last whistle is blown. We all have the same winning mindset and won’t stop until we reach our goal of winning the championship. We have starters retiring on both sides of the ball and are all eager to clean up the mistakes we made last year and lead the team to state. We are not the biggest team but we have a lot of grit and heart and I think that will help us achieve our goal. We also have a fantastic coaching staff that doesn’t quit. Constantly watching film and find different ways for our team to be as successful as it can be. That effort trickles down through the players and I think it’ll show on the field. Looking forward to the upcoming season and competing with my teammates. We should be a scary team. Athletes on both sides of the field that can make big plays and that will help bring us to state What goals do you have for yourself this upcoming season? For this upcoming season, a goal I have for myself is to be a player people don’t want to go against. I want teams to have to worry about me no matter what side of the ball I play on. I want to be a problem. I wasn’t the best last year and have really used the free time given to us because of covid to improve on technique from tackling, press in man, or reading defenses on offense. No more missing tackles or getting pushed off the ball, I want to be a problem on the field and want to help push my teammates to be problems as well because you need all your teammates to win a game and if I can help push and compete with my teammates, we will have a scary 11 guys on the field. I wanna compete, and I won’t stop. My biggest goal is to earn a scholarship to compete at the next level and won’t quite until I reach that goal
