So, in a way to better understand the use of Deep Dish Football for Illinois recruits and the whole entire IHSA Football scene. Decided to do player profiles of players who you might not know or you might know, but you should respect them for their roles on their respective teams. This is one of the many reasons why Deep Dish Football is respected in the IHSA. Every Football Player Has A Story To Tell

Matthew Waterman how is your season going so far? Me personally I think it’s definitely a rise from what I’ve had before. As a team I believe we are much better than we think and we just need to believe that. We still have many games to look forward to the rest of the season. What does football mean to you? Football is everything to me. I’ve been playing for 10 years and all I can think about is football. I’ve just absolutely fallen in love with the game. My Grandpa inspired me to play this long and I wish he was still here to watch me play my final game as a high schooler. What should college coaches know about you? I am a hard work and I am super coachable. I will get things done as told and with 120% effort.
What do you feel is your strongest trait on the football field? I feel mine is my effort. No matter the score, the team, game or practice, I will always give my best effort What goals do you have for yourself rest of the season? Help the underclassman and being a role model. I want to set a good example for the younger players before I leave. With all the potential our team has I want to try to push to make the playoffs to make my senior year memorable.
Who has had a breakout season on Lakes so far this season? It’s hard to choose one but I think both Rondell Griffin and Christian Scornavaco have had the best season so far. Rondell runs like crazy every single play with 100% effort. Christian puts in so much time and effort on and off the field, before practice he’s doing his own drills. After practice he’s helping coaches with anything that needs to be done. Both of them have had a great season so far and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for them.
