6-foot-4, 220 pound junior Kent Berger played a big part in his Mentor (OH) team's success this year.
"The season was great. We made it to the state semifinals which was a lot farther than anyone would've expected. I wouldn't trade the experience for anything."
The defensive end used the season as a chance to improve his overall game.
"I played pretty well. I ended up with 84 tackles and 9 sacks. I improved on using my hands more and reading the offense a lot more before the snap."
That work ethic has helped the junior garner the attention from several schools around the Midwest.
"I've been talking to Cincinnati, Boston College, Akron, Bowling Green and Indiana. They've been congratulating me on what I've accomplished so far and telling me to continue to work hard and stay in touch with me. More will probably visit during this winter and spring."
