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

Darius Tongo Rock Island Athlete Class of 2023 6'0 185

Darius Tongo how has your season been so far? So far, the season has been good. We went 2-1 through 3 weeks and had some good things happen, but I feel like both individually and as a team we have things to polish and improve on so that we can win the rest of our games and finish with only 1 loss. What does football mean to you? Football is always something I loved and i always had big goals and loved the game since I was a kid, it’s something I put a lot of time and hard work into, and I got a lot of things I want to accomplish What should college coaches know about you? College coaches should know that I’m a hard worker and I feel like I can accomplish anything I set my mind to and put work into. I love football, I love winning and love being apart of my team. Coaches should also know I’m a versatile player, and right now playing running back, receiver, defensive back, and also special teams. I feel like I will have success at the next level anywhere on the field or even multiple spots on the field. What goals do you have for yourself rest of the season? I want to win the remainder of our games, finish 8-1 and get a conference championship and then make a good run at state and win at home in playoffs. I want to be all-state, and also be all conference at running-back, receiver, Safety and returner on special teams. Who else on Rock Island should I be on the lookout for? A few senior guys I can think of are RB Quonterrion Brooks , OL Jace Bennett and Edmund Garcia Jr, LBs Steven Marquez and Jaquez Smith, DB Cameron Figgs, and WRs Desmond Woodson and LJ Miller
