Editor's note: In honor of the start of the Grayslake Central High School football season, I stopped by the varsity football practice on Wednesday to interview some players who volunteered. I'll be featuring these profiles over the next several days. Be sure to check out the team's schedule for this season. Go Rams! (And don't worry, Knights fans—I'll be profiling some Grayslake North players, too!)
Name: Alex Lennartz
1. What's great about the team this year? The chemistry. There are a lot of returning guys back, and a lot of experience back.
2. Who will be your biggest opponent this year? Crystal Lake Central and Grayslake North. With Grayslake North, we've been with those kids since we were little. And Crystal Lake has been the powerhouse.
3. What do you love about playing football? I love the play of the game. I love being able to contribute whatever to get these guys a W.
4. Who is your favorite college football player?Braxton Miller, all the way.
5. What do you do when you're not playing football? Usually just hanging out with friends, playing basketball and football, and watching a lot of film (of football).
