Meet Youth Football Online All Star Selection Jonathan Pollock. Jonathan is a kid that’s very passionate about playing football. He described his football experiences in great detail, one thing is evident, this kid loves the game.
Jonathan is a superb athlete, a strong kid that can squat 400+ pounds and bench press 200+pounds. He has great speed (4.8, 40 time) and agility. After watching Jonathan’s game film it was obvious that this kid loves to play defense. He plays defense with strict aggression and technique. Jonathan plays corner back but hits like a middle linebacker. This kid is not only an awesome tackler but he’s also great in pass coverage. Jonathan can best be described as a ball hawk. He does a nice job of attacking the ball at its highest point. When he intercepts the football he has the ability to take it for 6 points. He plays the game with extraordinary energy and passion.
Jonathan is also an outstanding youth football running back. He runs with great attitude and has no problem lowering his shoulder and running through, or over, a defender.
“ Jonathan is a true football player. Jonathan also, is a great student of the game and is the hardest worker. His level of commitment is unmatched by his peers.” – Coach Jacob Doss
Jonathan’s personal trainer Michael Greene from No Limits Training has been working with Jonathan for the past 4 months. Michael talks about our newest All-Star’s work ethic - “it is rare to find young men Jonathan’s age willing to work as hard as possible to achieve their dreams. We have little doubt that he will achieve his goal of playing college football and any program that recruits him will have an outstanding young man with exceptional character on their roster, not to mention his athletic ability and intrinsic drive to be the best he can be while encouraging others to do the same”.
Jonathan’s Advice to fellow youth football athletes-
Work hard, keep your grades up.. if you don’t get the grades, the one thing you love (football) may be taken away from you. Work hard everyday, if you get injured, lay off it..
Jonathan was selected to play in the 2012 Junior Rank “Semper Fidelis”All American game. We asked Jonathan to describe his Junior Rank experience – “Loved it! Nice set up, we got to keep the helmets. The younger guys were partnered up with the seniors. I loved the coaching- I learned so much about the linebacker position in the few days I was there. I also made new friends all around the country that I still stay connected with. I could have done a little better in the game, but I was happy with my performance.”
President and CEO of Junior Rank, Shaon Berry, wrote to us regarding Jonathan- “The coaches at our Academic All-American game raved about his range and explosion. When you put those things together with excellent grades and strong manners, he will be a young man that I consider to be as close to can’t miss as they come.”
Jonathan runs track, lifts weights, and practices MMA to keep in shape. He trains for football all year round. Jonathan is a shinning example of how hard work pays off. Jonathan’s most recent accomplishment was winning the MVP award at the NUC Combine in Orlando, Florida.
