For the past couple of seasons; Tunkhannock’s Jack Chilson has been one of the most prolific gunslingers in the Wyoming Valley Conference. His resume includes a stunning unanswered 28 point 4th Qtr performance against Pittston Area last year to lead his team from a come from behind victory 35-32. The #1 ranked student in his class is a cerebral student of the game; and looks to combine that with his impressive physical skills to put the Tigers in competition for a 2020 District Title
Let’s meet Jack!
How long have you played Football? 11 years
Do you plan to play in College? Yes
Do you play any other Sports? Basketball, Track & Field (Javelin, 300H, and Discus)
What’s your personal goal for the 2020 Season? All-State, 3000+ yards, 30+ TDs
What’s your Team Goal for the 2020 Season? District Champions
What are your Strengths as a Player?
1. Football IQ – Through film study and concept evaluation, I’ve gained my coaches’ trust to call the shots at any given time when we’re on offense. This either doesn’t allow the defense to adjust, or it allows us to adjust.
2. Playmaking – Although I love sitting in the pocket and zipping the ball all over the field, I can be dangerous when forced out of the pocket. At that point, I’m a threat both with my arm and my legs, and many of our big-time plays happen while we’re improvising.
Do you have a Home Team Game Day Tradition that is your favorite? On home game days, I will walk down to the field and stand there for awhile. I soak it all in and visualize myself playing great.
Favorite Place to Play other than at home? The Pit (Abington Heights)
Favorite Class/Subject? Government/History
Favorite Post Game stop for Food? Home
What would you say to your 13 year old self? When I was 13, I played my first game at quarterback. We lost 2-0, and I was sacked in the end zone for the only points of the game. I would tell myself to embrace the mistakes. Throughout my career, those experiences have made me the quarterback that I am today, physically and mentally.
