Trenton VanBoening Libertyville OL Class of 2023 6'6 275
Trenton VanBoening how was your 2019 season? I think it went great, it was definitely a growing year and I think I had improved a lot over the course of my freshman season. It introduced me to a higher level of football that I hadn’t played at before and allowed me to grow both physically and improve my overall football IQ. What does football mean to you? Football really means a lot to me. I have lived a lot of different places due to my father being in the marine corps and have played a lot of different sports over my life, but I have never gravitated towards any sport like I have football. Football is unmatched in the competition you find on the field. The friendships you will make because of the game will be lifelong. To me football means a place where people come for competition and brotherhood. What should college coaches know about you? I think that they should know my dedication and drive are unmatched. My resilience and focus come from being a Marine Corps kid. I have moved nine times in 16 years so I’m well practiced in focusing on a goal and hurdling obstacles. I’m grateful for my parents instilling those values in me. Honor, courage and commitment have always been a big part of my family and I pride myself on never quitting. What part of your game have you been working on in the offseason? I’ve really been working on a complete overhaul of my offensive game. I’ve been working on being able to better execute as a left tackle on the football field and improving strength and speed. I hit the gym every morning at 5:45 with my dad and am on a program written by my trainer that switches every six weeks. I have also been working to improve my technique as an offensive lineman with Fist Football. I have been working with Fist twice a week since august. This has been a very difficult period for everyone in the state of Illinois and I have been working as hard as I can to improve as much as I can during this down time in preparation for February 15th. What do you like about playing on the offensive line? Honestly, I’m not biased, but it’s the most fun position on the football field. The best way I have ever had someone explain it to me is my freshman lineman coach Coach Sullivan. You are always the hammer never the nail on offensive line. It is the only position where no one wants to tackle or hit you but it is your job to pancake the man across from you. That is why I really love offensive line.
