The D Zone - How has recruiting been going so far for you this season?

Cole Chewins - "I feel it has been going pretty well, I have had a chance to visit Michigan and Michigan State this spring and both visits went great. I plan on going back to both schools soon to visit again. In addition I have recently been added to and 247 sports and now The D Zone."

What has been your biggest challenge in High School football so far?

Cole Chewins - "My biggest challenge in high school football so far is that I have to pick multiple things up at a time because I play a variety of positions."

What has been the most memorable part of high school football?

Cole Chewins - "The memorable part of high school football was last season in general. We went 11-1, won a league and district title, and had a great group of guys on the team that everyone loved to be around."

What have you been doing since football season ended?

Cole Chewins - "During the winter I played on the varsity basketball team. In the spring I am running track. In addition, I play on the Michigan Elite 7on7 team. Lastly, I have been lifting and going to camps and combines."

What are keys to performing at your positions?

Cole Chewins - "For TE you have to be able to block and catch. You need to be physical to create holes for the RB. For DE you have to have active hands and keep your leverage. If you don't the offensive lineman can gain position on you. For LS you need to stay calm and collected because special teams plays a huge factor in the game."

What are some personal goals you have set for this upcoming season?

Cole Chewins - "Being on the field as much as possible. 5 TD's, 2 INT's, and 20 tackles. "

If a college coach was interested in having you play on his team and asked you why he should accept you on his team, what would you tell him?

Cole Chewins - "I have the ability to play multiple positions, I am a intelligent player, and get after it at practice to make me and the team better."

Which game stands out the most to you in the 2013 season?

Cole Chewins - "Definitely Lake Orion."

Who is the best player you lined up against on the field?

Cole Chewins - "The best players I have lined up against are David Beedle and Nick Matich. Even though they are on my team every day at practice they are very physical and strong players with quick feet."
