PILLAGER—Northstar Football News took their talents to the Northwoods for their next small town recruiting report. We caught up with AJ Gratke, a 2021 NFN prospect that chat with us about his high school football trail. We chatted with him about his junior season, his recruiting interests, and much more.

Get to Know AJ Gratke

Gratke is a great example of an all over the place football player. He plays tight end, outside linebacker, and safety. He loves to hit people on defense and battle in the trenches on offense. His versatility is what stood out to me, as he runs quick with most of his Huskies wide receivers. His height is his biggest strength as he scares wide receivers when they matchup with him on routes.

Favorite Part About Defense/Offense

On offense, Gratke loves knocking defensive linemen, linebackers on their rear end when blocking for his running back. He also enjoys the route running that goes along with being a tight end too. At safety and outside linebacker Gratke’s favorite is getting key interceptions to help his team and again, knocking guys on their rear end.
