Richter building on 2013
FREE! As a freshman at the varsity level, Jesup lineman Garrett Richter took some lumps last fall at times when battling against older players. That experience will continue to pay off and has pushed him to work even harder this off-season.
"For the summer, I go to the school and lift once a day. We have been going to camps. We didn't do as many college camps but we got invited to quite a few."
Richter enjoyed the experience at the camp that he was able to get to.
"We did one at Iowa State a few weeks back for their Friday Night Lights. I probably could have done better but thought I did alright."
The season opens in a few weeks against East Buchanan.
"It should be a good game. We beat them pretty bad last year. If we go and play hard we can win it."
There are some areas of his game that Richter has improved on the most this off-season.
"I think my run blocking has gotten a lot better with staying low and driving. I've been focusing more on getting after my guy then just technique."
Richter has had college interest for being so young.
"There has been camp invites from Illinois State, Savannah State, Southern Minnesota State, and my dad talked to Coach Farley at UNI. There have also been some from Division III schools."
Two schools have caught the attention of Richter growing up.
""When I was younger we really liked Iowa. I also used to live in Missouri so those are my two favorites."
