Berkley Football Player Adam Kopitz Signs With Concordia University Chicago

"I'm ready to play. I'm ready to compete with others – bigger, badder people out there. I'm just ready to take 'em down one by one," says the senior, who signed Monday as a corner back with the Division III school.

"My journey? Just thinking I wouldn't be able to play college football because of size demeanor and everything ... Now, I just feel on top of the world," Kopitz said. "I'm ready to play. I'm ready to compete with others – bigger, badder people out there. I'm just ready to take 'em down one by one."

Kopitz said he has played football since he was 5 years old and played football for Berkley all four years of high school, including the last two on the varsity squad. He also wrestled for the school.

"It's going to be a good experience for him," proud mom Gina Kopitz said after the signing ceremony Monday at BHS. "He's worked very hard. He's overcome quite a bit to get to the next level."
