With this recruiting profile, we head out to Winona to chat with 2021 NFN prospect Trenten Langowski who is a sizeable cornerback prospect for the Winona Winhawks. We chatted with Langowski about his season, his recruiting interest, and much more as he looks to play football at the next level next year.
Get to Know Trenten Langowski
Langowski comes from probably the best football program in southeast Minnesota in the Winhawks from Winona. He was selected first-team Big 9 as a cornerback this season as his 6’3 175-pound frame makes him a dominating threat against mostly smaller wide receivers. He also plays a wide receiver as well for the Winhawks which all in all makes his solid ball skills and dedication makes him a threat to the next level. His biggest strengths as a cornerback are his coverage skills and tackling ability. Trenten is also very disciplined, as he only had one penalty called on him all season which for a cornerback, is very surprising.
Favorite Part About Cornerback
Of course, Longowski’s favorite thing about corner is making the “big interception” as he likes changing over the momentum in any given game to the Winhawks.
College Interest/Pitch to College Coaches
Trenten says he looks to play football in college and is currently weighing what opportunities he may have. His pitch to college coaches is his 6’3 frame and his athleticism combined with his on-ball skills with an excellent work ethic would make Trenten “a good addition” to any college program looking for a lengthy cornerback.
Langowski has committed to improving his footwork and speed as a cornerback. He’s spent ample time in the weight room this offseason working on those two key areas specifically.
Trenten has two strong mentors that he said he owes for his craft as a cornerback. One of his old teammates, Terrell Hall who played cornerback for the Winhawks and now plays at NDSU was crucial to Langowski’s game. Hall helped Langowski on the “technical in and outs of playing corner” and Trenten stated he is a mentor to him by just being an excellent teammate as well. His other mentor? The entire Winona Winhawks coaching staff, as they’ve been strong in their encouragement and believing in Trenten’s ability to succeed at the highest level.
What Trenten Learned About Himself as a Player
Trenten told Northstar Football News “I’ve learned about myself is that with hard work you can accomplish anything you put your mind to!” which was his final statement about what he learned about himself as a player this year.
