Overview

East St. Louis, is loaded with talent returning from 2019’s state title squad. Offensively, they’ll be led by Missouri commit Tyler MaconTylerMacon6'0" | QBEast St. Louis | 2021StateIL, four-star wide receiver Dominic LovettDominicLovett5'10" | WREast St. Louis | 2021StateIL & one of the nations premier rising prospects in wide receiver Keontez LewisKeontezLewis6'1" | WREast St. Louis | 2021IL. Defensively, you have to look at rising junior’s Ahmad RobinsonAhmadRobinson6'0" | DBEast St. Louis | 2022StateIL and Jireh MaysJirehMays6'2" | DLEast St. Louis | 2022StateIL, both of whom should see their recruiting take off in the next few months. Last fall, East St. Louis was dominant, averaging 51 points on offense and only giving up 14 on defense. The only test they had was a 50-48 week three win at Neuqua Valley; every other win was by double digits. Head coach Darren Sunkett does a tremendous job with his program and consistently sends multiple prospects to the division one level each season. He’s won three state titles in his eighteen seasons and could very well capture his 4th this fall.
