Heading into the regular season, we recognize the top 30 senior prospects in all of Northern Virginia. That’s a tall task, considering that we track the talent at 86 high school programs in the region. Coming into our countdown as the #7 senior prospect region-wide is Massaponax lineman Donavan Beaver.
#7 Donavan Beaver (2019 OG 6-6 280) – Massaponax High School
In his junior season, Massaponax lineman Donavan Beaver earned First Team All-District and First Team All-Region honors as an offensive lineman.
The scholarship offers piled up, including Virginia, Virginia Tech, Pitt, Syracuse, West Virginia, North Carolina, Old Dominion, NC State, Maryland, Louisville and Florida.
West Virginia won out, with Beaver becoming the first Virginia commitment for WVU in their 2019 recruiting class.
After posting four consecutive 12 win seasons and a 49-5 record from 2013 to 2016, the Panthers dropped back to a 4-6 record last year. It was the first season since 2008 where Massaponax failed to make the playoffs.
The combination of Teagan McDonald and Donavan Beaver will drive the Panthers in the trenches this fall. From there, the ball is in the hands of the skill players to lead a return to the postseason.
