Ran into Savon Wall, defensive back/return man, for the the Page Pirates on Sunday night at CiCi’s Pizza on Battleground and he is very excited about the upcoming high school football season….

Made the swing by the Grimsley football field at Jamieson Stadium, on Monday and met DeSean Jones(RB), Rayshawn Mayfield(RB/LB), Kevin Walton(RB/DB/Athlete) and I saw the big man for a just minute, DJ Reader, now at 6’3 336…..

Some big games coming up for all the teams on Friday night, and if you have a shoutout for one of your players, put it in the comment box below……

    Savon’s (#25) on Page’s defensive side is going to LOVE that you gave him a shout out here! Special happy birthday shout to Shawn Workinger. They’re all over that way and I just hope the Workingers has some food left after they leave today.

    OK…all the “7 on 7’s” are out of the way. The scrimmages are behind us. We’ve worked through the heat, battled in the storms. All room for talk is now over! Now, the countdown for high school football has begun……….

    Wow, 336? I heard he lost some weight and as down around 290.. I guess not..

  • Andy said,

    DJ looks like he has redefined himself in the weight room….333, but looks like he is about 285….Lean for a 336 pounder……Defintely bigger than Reuben Davis was and almost all of the Whirlies to have come through here…..

    My son was at a teamone showcase with Reader and the way this kid moves Im sure football coaches don’t care what he weighs. The baseball Scouts sure didnt…

    I’m not saying the kid can’t move, I just thought he had leaned up a bit, from what I was hearing from some different sources. Sounds like he has gained some.
