After a huge junior season, Cibola signal caller Jonathan Mader is ready for his senior season to start. Three big time schools have come in to request some tape. Are any of the local schools in on him?

Cibola’s Jonathan Mader had a huge junior season.  He is also one of the top senior prospects in all of New Mexico next season.  Three colleges have come in and asked him to send out some tape.  Which schools?

 

PrepNewMexico.com: What kind of things are you looking forward to about Spring Ball?

Mader: For the most part, just getting back on the field with my teammates.  It’s the beginning of the evaluation process.  Its always exciting to see which players are gonna step up, and to start the team bonding.  Championships are won during the off-season.   And I guarantee you nobody will be working harder this off-season then the Cibola Cougars.

 

PrepNewMexico.com:: What players from last year’s squad will be missed most this year?

Mader: There are so many names from last year’s squad that will be missed.  But just to name a few; Joe Lehocky TE and Michael Marthe C. A lot of our starting defense last year were also seniors, so they will definitely be missed.

 

PrepNewMexico.com: What underclassman are you expecting to step up this year?

Mader: Rio Mares OL/DL, Daniel Fiaseu RB, and Ryan Williams TE.

 

PrepNewMexico.com: Have you gotten any offers as of yet?

Mader: No

 

PrepNewMexico.com: If you had a top 5 schools as of right now who would it be?

Mader: Texas Tech, Arizona State, LSU, BYU, and New Mexico

 

PrepNewMexico.com: Have any schools come by to talk with you or have any schools requested to see your tape?

Mader: TCU, Virginia and Arizona State have all requested film.

 

PrepNewMexico.com: What is your greatest football memory?

Mader: Beating Highland in the quarterfinals last season.  We wanted to assure the community that Judge made the right decision by coming over to the west side.

 

PrepNewMexico.com: What aspect of your game have you really worked on to get better for this upcoming season?

Mader: During the off-season there is always something you can improve.  Your goal should always be to strive for perfection, although nobody can ever be perfect. That should still be your goal.  I am mainly focusing on my simple mechanics and arm strength, the little things that will show down the road.

 

PrepNewMexico.com: Name one teammate who has really improved since last season?

Mader: Everybody has been working hard so far this off-season.  But it’s easy to see that Cory Powell (WR, ATH) has improved the most.  Speed, strength, his hard work will pay off this fall.

 

PrepNewMexico.com: What is the best piece of advice you have ever gotten?

Mader: Ain’t no need to know where I’m going, just need to know where I’ve been.

 

Look for more updates regarding Jon in the near future.
