It’s hard not to buy stock into the  Thomas Diew Thomas Diew 6'8" | DL St. Cloud Apollo | 2022 State MN  hype train even though he’s only a sophomore. With the examples 2019-20 has given us in-regards to players recruitment exploding who share similar measurables with the St. Cloud Apollo product such as North’s Davon Townley and Annandale’s  Logan Purcell Logan Purcell 6'7" | OL Annandale | 2021 State MN , there’s a lot of reasons to buy as much stock as possible. The 6’7, 230 lb. DE is a standout basketball player for Apollo and has a ridiculous amount of upside on the gridiron that has earned him a #26 (for now) overall ranking from Northstar Football News for our 2022 rankings and a special shoutout from GopherIllustrated and former NFN contributor Ryan Burns as a player to watch in MN for 2022. Watching his film just makes me excited, as Diew shows an almost unblockable combination of length and strength with some good use of his hands and an absolute insane amount of room to grow on his 6’7 frame. As I said, there’s a lot to like, and I was pumped when the rising junior agreed to answer a few of Northstar Football News questions about his underclassman experience at Apollo, how basketball affects his game on the gridiron, what he’s looking for in recruiting, and more. Thanks for reading, and
