Ethan Bachinski is already hearing from several Big Ten programs. Illinois, Iowa, Wisconsin and Minnesota have all been in contact.
Bachinski, who is coached at Milton by his father, Jeff Bachinski, could play either linebacker or tight end at the next level.
"I definitely feel that Ethan is a candidate to play D-1 football," Coach Bachinski told Badger Nation.
"We brought Ethan up to the varsity as a sophomore and he quickly became a starter on both sides of the ball. Ethan made all of our defensive calls as a sophomore. We were 8-3 this past year. We lost to DeForest in the play-off's and they ended up losing in the state championship game."
We asked Coach Bachinski if he could talk about Ethan's best attributes as a football player.
"Ethan has a presence on the field that's just hard to find," Coach Bachinski said. "Ehtan is extremely aggressive and he has tremendous leadership qualities.
"I honestly feel that he could play either tight end or linebacker in college. Ethan led our team in tackles and he also led the team our team in receptions as a tight end. It also wouldn't shock me if Ethan ended up as a safety in college because of his (4.65) speed."
Ethan Bachinski was born and raised in Milton, Wisconsin but he didn't necessarily grow up a fan of the home-state Badgers.
"Ethan actually grew up a huge fan of Penn State," Coach Bachinski said. "I don't know what the future will bring but I know Ethan once told me that he'd love to play for Penn State.
Ethan Bachinski is also a track standout at Milton. He throws the disc and shot while also running a leg of the 4x100 relay.
