The Newport News Apprentice School is raking in recruits, near and far.
Apprentice Head Football Coach John Davis and his staff added 12 players to his first Apprentice School Football Signing Class.
The Builders filled some critical needs, and went head to head with many formidable foes for the signature of the 12 signees. Apprentice will add another 18-20 prospects this Spring.
“We are thrilled about the early momentum and success our coaches had on the road this year. Our priority was our backyard and we beat out some formidable schools for the right fit” said Head Coach John Davis.
“This class is full of high quality academic leaders with 8 of them 3.5 plus,” noted Davis. “We wanted to be slow and through in our evaluation of prospective student athletes, Apprentice School is all about finding the right guy and I think we are off to the right start”
The signing day class includes three offensive lineman, two defensive lineman, two linebackers, three defensive backs, one wide receivers and one kicker.
A National Signing Day celebration at Wilson High School in Portsmouth saw CB Melik White and lineman Tyree Palmer (pictured) commit to the Apprentice School.
Also added to the fold:
Tallwood OLB Joshua Lucas

Phoebus K Anthony Wallace
Atlantic Shores lineman Tyler Lacy
Bethel lineman Josiah Hill
Heritage (NN) CB Tashaun Banks
King’s Fork DB Qua’shaun Jackson

…and recruits from West Virginia, Maryland, and Georgia.
