(Albert Havili 6-3 240 Sr. LB) Federal Way
If you want to talk about an athlete that is right on the bubble of getting his first offer, look no further then Federal Way’s Albert Havili (6-3 240 Sr. LB). The Washington product has been doing work, with his ridiculously talented teammates since our elite events during the winter.
Havili just looks the part, and will team with Rod Jones Jr at linebacker to form what could be one of the most deadly backer combos in the entire northwest. Albert earned first team all league honors on both sides of the ball last season, while also playing on the offensive line during their (10-1) run.
Havili plays out of position offensively because the Eagles need help up front, but the kid is a pure backer with legit size and someone that will happily come up and smack you. We currently have Havili ranked the #5 LB in the state of Washington ahead of a couple kids with offers. There are other things to work on, but his upside is off the charts.
More then anything Albert is a good kid. His love of the game is very evident and he conducts himself the way you want your premier athletes doing so. As you watch Havili’s highlights from our last regional combine you see a kid that has gotten even quicker, and more comfortable from his linebacker spot. His brother Winston was also in attendance and not surprisingly is a very talented kid as well.
Federal Way’s perimeter on both offense and defense can match anyone state wide as the Eagles feature Mike Tate (6-1 175 Sr. WR), Dlondo Tucker (6-0 175 Sr. ATH/DB), the McNeal brothers (JJ McNeal 5-8 180 Sr. DB) and Ezekiel McNeal (6-0 165 Sr. DB) , Chico McClatcher (5-7 170 ATH), and Jones Jr. (6-2 240 Sr. LB/RB)
We look forward to seeing a host of Federal Way Eagles at the Showcase event at UW on Saturday. Havili remains one of the most recruited kids in the northwest without an offer, but we don’t think that will last long. Congrats to Albert and the Federal Way Eagles, 2012 will be a year to remember.
