BARTON ELITE EVENT (Washington): PART 2 LBs/DBs
All I can say about this group is wow! Talk about bringing out the best of the best..Very few of the state’s top kids at these positions missed this Sunday. If you look at this list you have at least 75% of these athletes projecting at the D1 level. It has been nothing short of amazing to get this group of individuals on the same field in early February. Through NEI & The Barton Football Academy we have all of the top athletes training together over the off season. This is prep time for our NEI/Barton Camp and Combine Tour in the spring and summer, where we will gather the Northwest’s Top athletes to compete against one another.
Enjoy watching Washington’s Top LB’s and DB’s in part two of our three part series. Tomorrow we will be bringing you Offensive skill which includes the Nation’s #1 Jr QB in Max Browne out of Skyline.

Andrew Shadle Jr. 5-11 190 Bremerton- Slim Shady is just a ridiculous athlete. He’s the team best offensive and defensive player on his team, and is outstanding on the basketball floor. One of our favorite kids that will most likely be the all time tackles leader at Bremerton…
Cy Sirmon Fr. 6-1 190 Wenatchee- The youngster of the group is name famous in the State of Washington. His father John was a standout DE at (Idaho), while Peter Sirmon was dominant at Oregon before his amazing career in the NFL. He currently resides at UW as a new coach. Cy will write his own ticket and should add size rapidly and play significantly as a sophomore. Outstanding genes and work ethic..Just a great kid!
