High school coaches always love for new families to move into their communities, especially if one of the members of the family is a talented quarterback. Mike Wegzyn’s father moved to Knoxville last fall for business purposes, it took the family a longer time to arrive in Knoxville from Michigan; apparently the time was well worth it.

High school coaches always love for new families to move into their communities, especially if one of the members of the family is a talented quarterback.

Mike Wegzyn’s father moved to Knoxville last fall for business purposes, it took the family a longer time to arrive in Knoxville from Michigan; apparently the time was well worth it.

Wegzyn, a 6-foot-5, 210-pound strong arm quarterback, has enrolled at Knoxville Catholic High School and is expected to be the starter for the Fighting Irish in the fall.

The talented signal caller is enjoying the move to the South so far.

“I like it a lot so far,” Wegzyn said Wednesday night after taking in a Tennessee Vol Basketball game. “Knoxville has been great. Dad got a great job down here last fall, we are happy we are all back together.”

While Wegzyn has no official offers, he is hoping that college recruiters will get his new change of address.

“A lot of schools are starting to show me a lot of attention,” Wegzyn told InsideTennessee.com. “I’m getting a lot of mails and emails from a wide variety of schools in the ACC, SEC, and all over the spectrum.”

One school that he has been talking to a lot lately is the new Tennessee coaching staff.

“I have been by there a few times,” Wegzyn said. “I have been talking to them some, what a great campus.”

Wegzyn got the opportunity to take in a one day camp at Rocky Top last summer and is looking forward to getting to know the new coaching staff.

The talented QB also has an inside connection to the Volunteer Football Program.

“My brother Matt is a preferred walk-on tight end on the team,” Wegzyn said. “He really loves being a part of the team.”

What makes Wegzyn a good quarterback?

“I have always been told I have great field vision, whether it was in soccer or any sport I have played,” Wegzyn said. “I have been very fortunate to have several great quarterback coaches that have worked with me.”
