St. Johns (FL) Bartram Trail High School linebacker Will Tillo spent most of his summer at football camps in search of his first offer. After missing most of spring with an injury the 5-foot-11 and 210-pound defender is hoping his performance in summer camps and an outstanding senior year will help earn himself a football scholarship.
“I went to a handful of camps this summer,” said Tillo. “The Citadel and Florida Tech are the ones I felt really good with. I would say Florida Tech is the most interested right now. It’s really a nice school. I love the coaches, they are young and energetic. Mercer is also recruiting me.”
Tillo registered 67 total tackles last year including 47 solo stops. The rising senior also had one sack last year and feels he has a good feel for the game of football.
“I feel like my instincts and my ability to play downhill are my strengths. I read plays well and then I attack my gap,” said Tillo of his style of play.
