As we inch closer to the Las Vegas 7-on-7 tournament, the Barton Football Academy continues to add to their Team Washington roster, this time naming eight athletes. The rest of the roster, announced last week, can be seen at the bottom.
Amandre Williams, 6’3″ 225, QB Tahoma ’16 – (Offers: Montana State, Washington) Many people have heard of Amandre for his prowess as a defensive end, but what many don’t know is his ability as a QB. In a week two game against Rogers, Williams threw for 579 yards and five touchdowns. This will be a tremendous opportunity for Williams to open eyes to his offensive ability.
Isaac Garcia, 6’4″ 215, TE Bellevue ’16 – (Committed – USC) Isaac is a amazing athlete with a ton of upside. He is a great frame with plenty of room to add weight. Most know him as the Bellevue DE, but Isaac is also ranked as a top TE in the entire country. Both Scout.com and 247 Sports currently have Isaac rated as four stars.
Jacob Garcia, 6’3″ 185, WR Bellevue ’16 – Jacob is the twin brother of Isaac and is really starting to come into his own as a player. His size and athleticism will be a tough matchup for any defensive back. Look for Jacob to be one of the main targets on the Elite squad.
Benaiah Ellington, 6’1″ 170, DB Bellevue ’16 – Benaiah came to a training event and earned an invite. He showed ability as a lockdown corner, while also having the ability to jump over to offense and make plays. Ellington has speed that will be tough to handle on either side of the ball.
Kyle Olson-Urbon, 6’0″ 185, WR Gig Harbor ’16 – Kyle is a veteran of Vegas, as he was a key member of the Washington Elite squad in 2014. His speed and ability to find the opening as a slot receiver will be key for QB’s. Kyle was a first team All-SPSL performer last season, as well as garnering All-State honors as a punter. He spent last season at Peninsula High School, and recently made the move to Gig Harbor.
Austin Brown, 6’1″ 160, WR/DB Tahoma ’16 – Austin is a versatile athlete and could see time on both sides of the ball. He has good speed and will be a key target at wide out, while also logging some minutes as a cover corner. Vegas will be a tremendous opportunity for Austin as he looks to put his name on the map.
Brian Campbell, 6’3″ 180, QB Kentwood ’16 – Brian has good size and tremendous arm strength. Vegas will be a great chance for Brian to make a name for himself as a passer, as Kentwood doesn’t throw the ball too much.
Jerrel Chapman, 6’0″ 165, WR Tahoma ’18 – Chapman is a name you are going to want to remember. Just a freshman, he has all the ability and physical tools to be one of the top receivers statewide for his class.
