Hey kid...no pressure.
De La Salle junior tight end Matt Byrnes (6-foot-5, 200 pounds) made his first Franklin Middle School Dodgeball tournament appearance earlier this month.
He was also the team’s lone rookie on a team that had won the charity tournament the year before. While the Meteors came up just short in retaining the title a few weeks ago, no one also enjoyed themselves over the past two years more than De La Salle.
Byrnes, who played wide receiver and tight end last fall for the Meteors and head coach Mike Boehm, checks in and recaps his latest recruiting news. He also gives us an early preview of the 2019 De La Salle Meteors.
York junior offensive tackle prospect Jack Wall (6-foot-5, 265 pounds) is a name that is starting to appear on a few more recruiting radar screens this offseason.
Wall was part of a team from York Dukes team that took part in the recently held Franklin Middle School Charity Dodgeball Tournament in Wheaton. It was an event that helped raise much needed funds for several charities.
Wall takes a few minutes to update us on his latest recruiting news; he also gives some early insight on the upcoming Dukes' 2019 season.
Wheaton Warrenville South junior kicker/wide receiver Jack Olsen (5-foot-10, 170 pounds) is an IHSA state record-setting kicker for the Tigers and head coach Ron Muhitch. Olsen, who is holding an early scholarship offer from Miami (OH), continues to draw attention from multiple Power Five-level college football programs. Does that make him act like a big timer? Hardly. Olsen is as low key and humble as any kid you'll find in the Class of 2020.
Olsen also made teamed up with his fellow Tigers at the recently held Franklin Middle School charity dodgeball tournament which raised funds for several worthy charities. He took a few minutes to recap his record breaking 2018 season, his latest recruiting news along with giving up a very early preview of the 2019 Wheaton Warrenville South Tigers.
