Liam Kolinski St. Francis WR/DB Class Of 2025 6'0 190
Liam Kolinski how was your sophomore season? My sophomore season was a good introduction into what varsity football is really like. I was grateful that my coach, Bob McMillen, gave me the opportunity to play both sides of the ball and learn from a talented group of players. I had several big plays in key moments but definitely have plenty of room to learn and grow. We went 8-1 and lost in the semi-finals in the playoffs. I have been putting in a lot of work this off season and am looking forward to my junior year. What does football mean to you? Football means a lot to me. It has been a part of my life since I can remember and I have been playing organized football since I was in 5th grade. It brings out my competitive spirit and I love to be in my zone while playing. I also love the brotherhood that comes with it. I have made some of my best friends playing football.
What should college coaches know about you? I would like college coaches to know that I am a multi-sport student athlete. I am a good route runner. My off-season training has focused on making clean cuts and getting in and out of breaks faster. Identifying defenses while on offense and reading the offense while on defense is a strength of mine. Being a physical player allows me to make plays whenever I am in position to. I am also coachable and a team player. What part of your game have you been working on in the offseason? During my off-season training, I worked on releases so I can create more separation from the defender off the line of scrimmage. My footwork has improved to help me with releases and route running, allowing me to get open more often. Hand strength will benefit making big plays on the ball this upcoming season. Finally, improving my speed and change of direction will help me against defenders and gain yards after catch.
What goals do you have for yourself this season? I have set many goals for my Junior year. Our team goal is to compete in the CCL and win state. Some of my personal goals to help us achieve this are to get 10 touchdowns on offence 4 interceptions on defense. I also will do my job every play to help my team succeed.
