Czerlanis does not have many inspirations, but some that stand out are Coach Glashagel, his aunt and, most importantly, his mom. These people have pushed him to always get better even when times get tough. Coach Glashagel has always been there for him and continues to be a role model in Czerlanis' life.
"He is more than just a football coach; he is also a life coach," Czerlanis said. "He pushes me harder and harder every day, that is a lesson that will make me more successful now, and down the road."
His mom and aunt have encouraged Czerlanis to be the best that he can be and to never give up. Czerlanis will never forget that and will always play for his family, whether that refers to his actual family or his football family.
Czerlanis will always remember what inspired him but he will also always remember a game that will go down in Sequoit history; the Lakes vs Antioch game last year. It was a dog fight with the Eagles, in the end the Sequoits prospered and came home with one miraculous win.
"I will always remember the last 5 minutes or so of the Lakes-Antioch football game last year," Czerlanis said. "I could never forget how we came from behind and stole the game from Lakes with our late touchdown drives to take the lead, and the big defensive stops that keep our lead."
Czerlanis has goals set in mind for this season. One being to win a state championship for Antioch. He continues to work extremely hard to achieve this goal but he knows it won't be easy. But with the help of all the great players on the '19 squad and the great coaching staff, he knows they have a good chance of achieving something that he has dreamed of since he started.
