■ PLAYER INTERVIEW: Drew Person - QB - 2022

by Palmetto Media

Palmetto Prep Academy’s Drew Person recently sat down with Stewart Dolbeare to catch up on the upcoming season.

 1.    What made you choose Palmetto Prep Academy? 

I chose Palmetto Prep Academy because I believed I needed more film and experience to play the game of football well at the next level. I decided to come down south because of the high level of competition and the fair price Palmetto Prep Academy offered.

2.    What high school did you graduate from? 

I graduated from Downingtown East High School in Exton, Pennsylvania.

3.    What makes you a top prospect at your position in the 2022 recruiting class? 

What makes me a top prospect is that I am a natural-born leader, in addition to being extremely coachable. I am also academically talented, so I can learn the playbook quickly and bring up the team's GPA. 

4.    What is one thing that colleges and universities should know about you?

One thing that colleges and universities should know about me is that I am accountable and will keep my teammates accountable. 

5.    What are you thinking about majoring in when you get to college?

I am thinking about majoring in a branch of engineering, but I am not yet sure which. 

6.    What is the best advice you have ever received?

The best advice I have ever received is ''Hard Work beats talent when talent fails to work hard.'' I firmly believe that my hard work and integrity have made me the player I am today and will make me the player I will become. 

7.    Overcoming adversity is what defines character; what was the hardest moment in your life to overcome?

The most challenging moment in my life I had to overcome and have to overcome every day is my mother's death. She passed away when I was at the age of 4, and I always try to live my life in her image every day. The most important thing I have learned in light of her death is the value of family. 

8.    Do you have any offers currently? 

Yes, I have one Division I FCS offer from Long Island University (North Eastern Conference)

9.    If you could sell yourself in one sentence, what would you say?

I come from a hard-working family who taught me that you create your own opportunities by working on yourself when nobody is looking. Whatever my coach asks to be done, I will do as soon as possible without a whimper of complaining.
