Warwick always seems to have players that merit recognition. The Raiders have labored for years as a contender in the Peninsula District, but they also have struggled to push their way through to the highest echelon of the PD, where schools like Woodside, Phoebus and Hampton reside.
Heading into the regular season, we recognize the top 30 senior prospects in the 757. We’ve scoured the region for talent for almost ten years now, keeping an eye on the best of the best, but also looking for opportunities to connect athlete and high school programs with college coaches. Coming in as the #19 senior prospect region-wide is Warwick running back and linebacker Davyvon Meade.

Meade was a two-way star for Warwick in his junior season. In a field where running backs get a lot of glory, Dayvon was able to go against the grain and make a name for himself as a linebacker.
“(College coaches) love the type of ball player he is: hard nosed. Doesn’t take any plays off,” said Warwick head coach Corey Hairston of Meade.
He’s playing almost every down of every football game. That durability is impressive. In 2017, Meade was selected as a First Team All-District and First Team All-Region 5A linebacker, which unfortunately overlooks his additional abilities as a running back.
Florida Atlantic offered well over a year ago. Since that time, Morgan State and Hampton have also offered. In his senior season, he has the opportunity to earn more scholarship offers with a fast start.
