Addison Ostrenga

Class of 2022 baseball and football prospect Addison Ostrenga of Sun Prairie (WI) High. 

Decisions, Decisions.

Usually when that expression is uttered, it's a difficult choice. 

Such is the case with Addison Ostrenga, the multi-sport athlete from Sun Prairie (WI) High picking between playing baseball, football or both at Iowa. 

"Right now, I am just considering all of my options and keeping an open mind to the possibility of either sport," he told HN.

Ostrenga (6-5, 220) believed he'd determined his college future last August when he committed to Hawkeye baseball coach Rick Heller. After attending an Iowa football camp last month, he picked up an offer from that program to play tight end Sunday night. 

"The (football) offer means a lot to me. To have the opportunity to play football or baseball in college is a dream come true," he said.

Ostrenga said he is deciding whether to play football, baseball or both. The time commitment for two Division I sports along with academics would be intense. 

"I do not have a deadline, but I would like to make a decision soon," he said.

The Class of 2022 prospect was unsure if the Iowa baseball and football coaches had discussed logistics for him playing both sports at the school. They likely had to work it out with incoming recruit Brody Brecht of Ankeny, who planned on lining up in those sports if he didn't sign a pro baseball contract after the current MLB Draft. 

Ostrenga caught 19 passes for 328 yards and three touchdowns in a COVID-19 shortened junior season. He added 29 tackles (3 for loss) and forced a fumble. Sun Prairie won all six of its contests played in the spring.  

He experienced a degree of what it would be like playing baseball and football in college because his high school baseball season also began this spring. Sun Prairie claimed a state championship on the diamond July 1, finishing 29-2.
