Gloucester linebacker Sebastian Harris came into camp as an unknown.
Quietly, Sebastian stated his case for a solid college recruitment.
Drill after drill, Harris (2021 LB 5-11 160) executed every element to a “T”. His quickness and agility were plain to see. His ability to take coaching was off the chart.
“I could have done better, but I condition to make myself better every day,” Sebastian said. “At home I have a weight set. I’ve been out with some of my buddies, we made a little gym together and we get together every day at 12 o’clock. We work out for two hours, working on different maxes and getting reps, trying to get our grind better for the season.
“I started out very skinny. This is my 12th year playing football and I started out being 60 pounds and not being the best player. I always thought to myself that I want to be the top of the top; I want to improve myself, so I’ll do anything, workout, so I can get to the top and prove myself.”
Gloucester can get forgotten about when it comes to Peninsula District football, but there is a change rolling through right now. The county is rural, in contrast to the Newport News and Hampton High Schools that complete the district. Gloucester players often come at the game from a completely different perspective.
“I’m a quiet person, but my actions show how I really play,” said Harris. “I do hit bigger for my size and (my LB coach) has always told me that. I try to go out there every day and prove that my size doesn’t (matter), but it does have some power behind it.”
Sebastian has now offers yet, but he’s working to connect with colleges big and small. As we’ve said before, it doesn’t take dozens of offers to find the right one. If a prospect has one offer and it’s a good fit, that’s all he needs to get to the next level.
