Sophomore offensive lineman Mason Ludwig is doing a good job making a name for himself. The 6-foot-5, 275-pound tackle from East Liverpool High School in Ohio is becoming an increasingly valuable target in the class of 2023. Ludwig, who also plays baseball and basketball, already has offers from Iowa State, Kentucky, Miami (Ohio), and Toledo.

When Ludwig got his first offer, he couldn’t believe it was real.

“It was crazy,” Ludwig said. “I was at school and my uncle is the head coach of my high school team. He obviously has to talk to the coaches ‘cause I’m still a sophomore, I can only call them to actually talk to them. He texted me during one of my classes and told me what was going on and I still didn’t believe it. I didn’t think it was happening at all, it was just crazy. It’s still unbelievable, the process and everything that’s going on.”

For Ludwig, the feeling of receiving an offer to play football is not one that has diminished since the first experience.

“It just keeps getting better and better,” he said. “The process is a great process and it’s just fun to be in.”

Ludwig said that it was hard to figure out what qualities to look for in a football program, since he hasn’t been on any visits yet, but his main concerns are education, location, facilities, program background, and the connection he creates with the coaches.

“I feel like I could bring a lot of energy and leadership, just keeping everybody in order. I feel like that’s what I bring most to my high school team. That’s what I feel like I brought the past year and that’s what I brought the most. Just being gritty. Just doing the best I can every play and not taking anything off. Just going at it every play.”

Ludwig described how GameChangers training has not only helped him as a player but as an athlete in need of preserving his body.

“I feel like they give me a lot of things that help me,” said Ludwig. “You even go to a session, you just learn new things, and he wants you to do them everyday or every few days and it improves you as a player so much. It keeps your body healthy. It’s not even all about the getting better part, it’s about how you control your body and keeping you from getting injured. People think it’s just about ‘get better, get better’ but it’s also the other stuff like keeping yourself healthy and mobile and flexibility and everything like that.”
