Evan Sobiesk is currently the kicker for the Warrior football team and is being recruited by many division one schools. This article follows him throughout the decision making process and allows us to see which college he will choose in the end.
When choosing a college, many seniors visit the schools they are considering to attend. Evan Sobiesk, just like his fellow classmates, has decided to visit some of the universities that have contacted him about playing football. Due to Sobiesk’s growing recruitment, however, this list is continually getting longer.
In order to narrow his choices for a college, Sobiesk has already begun visiting these various schools. He will continue to make these trips throughout the semester including an upcoming visit this month to Montana State and the University of Alabama and a trip to Brown University in December.
Aside from campus visits, however, Sobiesk continues to stay busy in many different ways. First, Sobiesk has stayed in touch with some of the universities that have already contacted him including Harvard, who called him again in October. Secondly, Sobiesk has also proven himself to be a valuable player by participating in the National Nike Combine in Dallas in October. He has also been selected to play in the Mississippi North-South All Star football game, a game that showcases some of the most talented football players in the state. Many of the coaches for the Warrior football team have recently made light of Sobiesk’s talents by nicknaming him the Flying Squirrel, a name he received after making a tackle in a recent game.
Sobiesk has since proven himself to his coaches and teammates by showing his athleticism not only in football but also in tennis. “I’ve never played tennis before. I just went out there and hit a few balls at the tryouts,” Sobiesk said of making the Warrior tennis team. With accomplishments like this, we are all left to wonder – What can’t Evan do? Well, I guess you will all just have to stick around to find out as we continue to kick it with Evan Sobiesk.
