WR's mom joins for recent visit

CRETE, Ill. -- Putting in some extra work after basketball practice, wide receiver Laquon Treadwell (Crete, Ill./Crete-Monee) usually can be found in the gym or in the weight room. The two-sport athlete excels at everything he does and has been hearing from football programs across the country.

"He's a tremendous athlete, one of the best I've ever had," Crete basketball coach Tom Cappel said. "I've had some two-sport players before, and (Treadwell) is the best. He's just that type of kid that he's good at everything."

On top of being good at everything, Cappel says Treadwell is simply a competitor who doesn't back down from anyone.
