What is your favorite pass play and why?

I would have to say some variation of mesh. Mesh is a concept that can open up any receiver with the right rules and knowledge. It cannot be stopped when ran right and everyone is on the same page.

If there was a billboard with 5 of your traits on it which 5 traits would be up there?

Integrity, ambitious, patient, honest and authenticity.

What are you looking to achieve as a football player going forward?

I’m focusing on what I can control on the day to day process. I believe if I can stay in shape both physically and mentally, I will be ready for an opportunity that comes.

What are your favorite moments from your football life?

One of my favorite moments growing up was watching the high school football team play on Friday nights (Mount Horeb/Barneveld) and then waking up early Saturday morning to play my youth football games. Recently, I would say, the 2019 and 2021 playoff runs. To play on the national stage is as fun as it gets.

What sets you apart from other quarterbacks?

I think what makes me different is that I’m a gamer. I might not be the fastest or the biggest but I play with heart and confidence. I love the big stage and when the lights come on, I’m ready to play no matter what the situation is. I will do anything to get a win.

What type of energy do you bring onto the football field?

When it’s time to hit the field, I get pretty intense. I want to make sure that I’m ready and that my teammates are ready to play.

What made you decide you wanted to be a football player?

My family had a big part of me playing football but my love for the game came from watching Brett Favre play. He played with so much heart and enthusiasm and I’ve tried to mock that my whole career.

What should we know about Max Meylor the person?

I believe I’m authentic and a hard worker. I’m always trying to get better each and every day even if it’s the most simple things. Football has taught me that everything needs to be earned and nothing is given.

What do you think are the keys to success on the football field?

I believe the key to success on the football field comes from the off season work. Whether it’s in the weight room, routes with the receivers or even just hanging out with the guys on the weekends are all a big part to winning football games. You create those bonds during those times so when a game gets tight, we know what to do and how to execute.

What would a team get in a player like you?

A competitor. Like I’ve said earlier, everything is earned. I want to show whoever gives me a shot that I can play at a high level and win games.

What is your typical training routine?

The past few months I’ve been basically working a full time job and then after work I’ve been in the weight room or throwing. I’ve been on a great schedule Monday-Friday. It’s been a grind and it’ll be all worth it if an opportunity comes.

If you could hang out with any football player past or present for a day who and why?

I’d probably have to say Brett Favre. I loved how he played and had a lot of fun while doing it.
