What made you decide you wanted to be a football player?
Something about the team aspect always stuck out to me. You truly need all 11 people on the same page mentally and physically. There is nothing more demanding, but also rewarding from this sport and it’s something I fell in love with.
What are your favorite moments from your football life?
It’s really hard to pin-point specific memories through my football career. I’ve accomplished a lot with great people and developed memories and relationships I will hold onto for a lifetime. Playing with my brother Frankie in the 2019 season is something that sticks out the most. Being able to see him accomplish everything he did from the sideline was an awesome experience.
What sets you apart from other wide receivers?
I would say my toughness sets me apart from a lot of receivers. I learned early that life is easier for tough people.
What type of energy do you bring onto the football field?
On the field I really try to keep to myself and remain level headed. Whether practice or a game I can confidently say I bring 110%.
If you could hang out with any football player past or present for a day who and why?
Devin Hester. I’m a big Chicago Bears fan and he probably is the reason why. He was an absolute game changer and inspired me to do the same at a young age. I wish I can model my game after him but unfortunately I’m just not built like that.
How do you prepare for games?
My teammate Owen Daddona and I go to Moes the night before every game. I credit a lot of the teams success to Moes Southwest Grill.
What should we know about Michael Feaster the person?
I hang my hat on principle. There’s no cost in being a good person, especially in today’s society.
What is your favorite route and why?
Anything that will get me open. I’ll run anything on the route tree with confidence.
How do you handle challenges both in life and on the football field?
Luckily, football is a game full of life lessons that I take into life. I handle challenges on the field the same way I do in life. I was blessed with unbelievable coaches in my career to teach me these lessons. I would not be the man I am without them.
What would a team get in a player like you?
They would get a leader and great teammate. I take pride in the relationships I have with my teammates. I want them to know that they can trust me and that I trust them in football or life in general.
What are you looking forward to in your upcoming season?
Playing the game I love. Recently, I’ve learned to never take this game for granted. Every minute I have on the field will be cherished knowing how valuable it is. We also have an opportunity to prove people wrong. A lot of people write us out and it doesn’t go unnoticed. Muhlenberg football is used to it.
Who is the most underrated player you’ve played with and why?
Michael Hnatkowsky. I wouldn’t call him underrated but he deserves more credit for mine and Muhlenberg footballs success. The fact that he’s not on an NFL roster is beyond me.
