Tell everyone about yourself?
My name is Kishon Wilcher and I play football for Cass Tech High School which I am currently a junior. At Cass I play mostly Slot and DB, but they also try me at running back, safety, KR, and PR. Last year I made All-City, and All-Metro in football. I also run track, my main event is the 200 and the 4x200 relay. In track I am All-City, All-State, and an All-American. I have a G.P.A of 3.5. That's just a quick summary about me.
What was your best game?
I think my best game was our homecoming game against Mumford. We were coming off of a two game losing streak and we had just changed our whole offensive scheme. I ended up scoring two touchdowns and rushed for over 100 yards. After the game I got interviewed by the news. But our TEAMS best game was against Dearborn Fordson which we were the underdogs and we were losing at half time, the score was 23-2. We came back and stopped their offense and won the game 24-23. It was the best game I ever played in.
Why are sports/education important to you?
Education is important because you can go basically anywhere with good grades and being smart. When you are smart you have alot more job opportunities and college opportunities. Education lasts a life time, sports are part time. You won't be able to do sports all your life but it is important to me because it keeps my body healthy,in shape, and it keeps me out of trouble. It also helps me meet alot of other skilled athletes and professional athletes. Education ad sports together gives me a better chance at getting a scholarship for college.
What can you do to make yourself better in your sport?
The best thing to help me in football is practice, work out, and be confident in myself. Learn more about my position by watching professional athletes and going to camps. I have to be a coachable athlete as in doing what my coach asks of me and by putting myself around people that won't hate on you or tell you the wrong things. I need to be around people that are positive and want to go somewhere in life.
What is your dream college?
I don't really know what my dream college is but I would love to go to any school in the Pac-10. They like small speedy players and that is what I am. But I am receiving mail from many colleges and my father is receiving many phone calls from colleges.
If a College Coach ask you, how can you make our team better, what would you say?
The way I can make their team better is by being a team player, alot of hard work, and dedication to the team. Being a playmaker by stepping up in big game time situations and by always being positive. When the team is down, somebody has to be the one to bring their spirits back up to win the game.
What advice can you give other student-athletes?
I would tell them don't let anything stand in their way of their dreams, stay focused on their goals, and keep God the head of their life. Also to always put education and family before sports because sports is secondary.
