He plays both running back and linebacker for Pottsgrove HS. Michigan Sports Zone got in touch with Maika’s Head Coach, Coach Pennypacker, and he had this to say about his star player “good hearted kid that gives a lot back to his community and school, good character kid.” Coach also told Michigan Sports Zone, Maika lifts weights and runs all the time and he may be one of the hardest workers he as ever had. According to Coach Pennypacker; Maika is a strong, physical, fast running back that is being looked at as a running back in college but, in his opinion, would make a great defensive player.  Keep checking back with Top Prospect Sports in the coming months for more information about Maika's recruitment!
