ST. MICHAEL-ALBERTVILLE– Saturday’s are for quarterbacks especially STMA Knights quarterbacks. In this recruiting report we chat with 2021 NFN prospect Jack Drobinski who is the new QB1 for St. Michael-Albertville. We chatted with Drobinski about his football journey, what’s on his recruiting trail, and more.
Get to Know Jack Drobinski
If you are looking for an ideal fit quarterback that’s 6’2 205 pounds going into his senior season, you might have hit the jackpot with Drobinski. We haven’t even tapped into the potential this kid has because he backed up Kolby Gartner last season, who has committed to play baseball for St. Thomas next year. Drobinski has a knack for making the tough throws look easier than some QBs. The strengths Drobinski possesses are his football IQ, and his ability for knowing where the “best fit” to throw the ball on every play to benefit the Knights offense. Drobinski is also a fantastic student, with a 3.8 GPA.
Favorite Part About QB1
The preparation that goes into each game is what does it for Drobinski as far as his favorites about the position. Drobinski is a firm believer is watching game film on every opponent and he told NFN that learning the tendencies of every opponent is “really fun”.
College Interest/His Pitch to Coaches
With junior days being handed out a lot from Wisconsin and Minnesota football programs recently, Drobinski has some interested programs in his game. He has three junior days offered from Bemidji State, Winona State, and UW-River Falls. He’s also had contact Minnesota-Duluth, North Dakota, Concordia-St. Paul, St. Thomas, and Minnesota State-Moorhead. The pitch Drobinski gave us was his “winning attitude” he brings to the table with everything he does on and off the field. “I’ll do whatever it takes to win,” he told Northstar Football News in his pitch.
Working Towards Next Season
Drobinski has spent his offseason working on his footwork. He has a quarterback trainer in Dr. Grant Norland of Inspired Athletx and The QB Institute that has been influential in Drobinski’s improvement thus far this offseason.
Drobinski told NFN, that STMA head coach Jared Essler has been the biggest impact on his football career. The push that Coach Essler has put into Drobinski, is what makes Essler his true football mentor as Essler is “always” looking for ways for Jack to get better on the field.
2020 Season Goals
A very humble Jack Drobinski told Northstar Football News his 2020 season goal is: To Win a State Championship! St. Michael-Albertville hasn’t been to the state championship when they were runners up in 1999, were they lost 28-7 to Minneapolis DeLaSalle and All-Metro player of the year Dominique Sims (went on to play for the Gophers) back when the Knights were in Class 3A. But it could happen for the Knights in 2020!
