Eric Truschke, 16, is a junior who plays wide receiver and defensive end for Sharks football.

How did you first get into football?
Freshman year my friend that I was on other teams with thought I would be good at it and asked me to go out there with him. I did it and loved it.

Are there any skills you learned as a receiver that helped you as a defensive end or vice versa?
It certainly has. As a receiver, it taught me to avoid people or dodge and as a defensive end you need to get around people and contain and be quick.
