One of Washington’s top RB’s that we saw excel at our elite events was EJ Deveaux (5-9 182 Jr. RB/CB) of Curtis. The kid was a first team all league athlete on both sides of the ball in 2011, on a team with outstanding football tradition. Curtis had a tough season finishing 5-5 overall, but EJ did his thing rushing for over 1000 yards and 21 total Td’s behind a young, and very talented returning offensive line.
Chris Coffin (6-4 285 Jr. OL), Zach Budnick (6-3 265 Jr. OL), and Andrew Maul (6-3 260 Jr. OL) are all part of one of the most impressive returning line casts in the state. Coffin has had an incredible off season thus far earning early recognition as one of the better lineman in Washington. Budnick and Maul are very similar with legit size and huge upsides.
Deveaux isn’t a big kid, but runs with power and is extremely elusive. His ability to hit holes and bounce were very apparent at our invite only events, where he upped his stock immensely. EJ says, ” Its my goal to help us win the conference title and move further along towards state, I personally want to improve in all areas and make next year a special season”.
EJ sports a 3.77 accumulative GPA, and a unique work ethic that helped him to garner the 1st team all league accolades. Its rare for a junior to double up on both sides of the ball, which makes this undersized athlete one of the state’s best. He’s extremely tough and is fearless when running the ball, and projects at the D2-D1aa level.
Deveaux has climbed our rankings board with some outstanding camp performances over the winter , and we look forward to seeing what else the kid is capable of on the field during our spring and summer combine tour. He’s an athlete that you root for because of his demeanor. He’s the type of leader every team needs on and off the field ,and Curtis will thrive this season if he achieves his personal expectations.
