Tomi Bisiriyu Whitney Young Class of 2022 6'5 290 DL/OL
Tomi Bisiriyu how was your 2019 season? Overall, my 2019 season was successful, seeing that my team ended with a winning record. It was my sophomore season, and I definitely had a lot of weaknesses in my game that needed work. This off-season and during the pandemic, I’ve been trying to learn more about the game and develop my skill going into the 2021 season. What should college coaches know about you? I’m a 6’5 290 Ib lineman who loves to move and I am very quick on my feet. I run a 5.2 40 time and I also play basketball. I would also say that I’m very coachable and I love to take suggestions and criticism on how to develop my game. I currently have a 3.16 GPA and I am on track to get that up after receiving my grades this semester. What does football mean to you? Football means a lot to me and I take pride in every aspect of the game. When I get on the practice field or in the gym, I’m constantly pushing to get better because I love seeing the results in game. Football is also a display of brotherhood of and comradeship . I’ve met a lot of my best friends and best mentors through football and they are part of the reason I strive to get better. When I get in my mode, I’m thinking about helping myself and my team, and I don’t believe any other sport offers the same. What part of your game have you been working on in the offseason? I’ve mainly been working on my agility and strength. My main problem last year was exploding low out of my stance, and I’ve been doing hill workouts and drills to help with that. I work on my footwork and technique everyday. I’ve also been in the gym getting stronger and getting my body ready for the season. Another part that I didn’t take as serious when I was a sophomore was my nutrition. I’ve been eating a lot cleaner and drinking a gallon of water a day and I can feel the difference. How does Whitney Young football look for the upcoming season? Out of my 3 years at Whitney Young, I am most excited for this season. My first year, we went 9-0 and looked unstoppable. Then, we went through some coaching and personnel issues my sophomore year and we had some struggles. But, this year, I’ve seen the work me and my teammates have been putting in everyday. There is definitely a new mentality in the locker room and I hope I can make a big impact for our team this season. Our schedule is looking the most competitive it has been and we are prepared. Coach Finger and our other coaches have been putting in hours getting our playbook down and we’re ready to make noise this season.
