Ian Marderosian Barrington Class Of 2024 Defensive Tackle 6'0 245
Ian Marderosian how was your junior season? Very fun but really a new experience for me as a whole. I moved from middle linebacker my JV season and got to start all 9 games as a DT and had tons of fun earning an All-Conference award. What does football mean to you? It’s something that I use as an outlet to express myself and show what I do best. I really enjoy the game and have enjoyed watching and playing football ever since I was a little kid What should college coaches know about you? That I am willing to outwork anyone under any circumstance and am willing to do whatever it takes to play where I want or where I am wanted.
What do you like about playing in the trenches?
I love the physical aspect. I believe that it’s my best asset as a player and I love being able to showcase that every play.
What do you feel is your strongest trait on the football field?
Definitely my strength and speed combo, along with leverage. I’m able to shoot gaps and be very fast off the ball and even though I’m considered undersized. I’m still able to overpower most guys I go against using strength and leverage.
What schools have you been talking to so far?
I’ve had multiple conversations with Drake and Valpo, I just had a Junior Day visit at Valpo last Saturday, April 15.
Who on Barrington is ready for a breakout season this fall? I would definitely say that I am ready, but also some fellow defensive linemen who went under recognized last season for their impact on the field such as DE Jack Burzynski (2025) and EDGE Devan Van Ness (2024).
