Coaches Q&A with Joe Repshis:
Talk about his strengths?
“He has a great sense of awareness on the field. He has that precedence about him on the field. He prepares for everything he does and has a great work ethic. He works extremely hard to make him self better and has a great first step and has speed. He just works extremely hard on all phases of the game. He is a student of the game whether its on football or basketball and he studies a lot film. He has that great ability to bring out the best in all his teammates.”
He plays both ways. Is he stronger at one position than others?
“He is a player that can play quarterback, running back, wide receiver, defensive back and I can put him any where on the field and he can be successful at it. He has been very productive at the positions that he has played. It goes back to his work ethic and desire to continue to improve and learn and get better. He is a player that every second of the game and every play he wants to be out there. He is a player that makes plays and we want to get him the ball.”
How is he on defense?
“He is a excellent defensive player. He has great size for a defensive back and great range. He puts him self in great positions on the field and understands what is happening around him. He is a very intelligent player on the field and has a nose for the football and is very physical.”
Schools of Interest: Committed to Bucknell for Basketball. “He verbally committed to Bucknell back in June. He put a lot of thought into the process of being a dual sport athlete being recruited for two sports. He had offers from division one teams for Basketball and Football.”
