At the recruit757/Sparta Science Showcase at Redskins Park, our #24 athlete in the recruitNoVA Fab 30 was given kudos as one of the top athletes at the event.
Heading into the regular season, we recognize the top 30 senior prospects in and around Northern Virginia. Continuing our countdown at number 24 is Flint Hill School linebacker Elijah Wasson.
#24 Elijah Wasson (2020 MLB 5-10 199) – Flint Hill School
In his junior season, Elijah Wasson was a First Team VISAA Division I All-State linebacker.
His Flint Hill squad has now gone through two seasons undefeated and that winning streak has yielded two state championship at the highest level of private school football in the state.
At the recruit757/Sparta Science showcase in March of this year, Wasson ran the fastest pro shuttle at the camp, posting a time of 4.15. That’s the 5-10-5 shuttle that demonstrates lateral movement and speed.
This season, Wasson steps up as a senior leader for the Huskies. Under new head coach Jason Thomas, Flint Hill is expected to continue their run of success, but the leaders on the field will have to execute at the same level as the teams before them.
Wasson currently holds an offer from Howard, with interest from Lehigh, Richmond and Liberty. He’s Division I bound. We’re simply waiting to see what happens next for him.
