Speed, reach, range and sure hands are Javon Swinton’s calling card.
Swinton’s athleticism is obvious. He not only stars for the North Stafford football team, but he’s also a basketball star. Swinton was the Free Lance–Star boys basketball player of the year in 2018-19, as he averaged 27 points per game and posted 30-plus points in eight games. He held an offer to play basketball in the Big South at Hampton University, but decided to go the football route.
As a football player, Swinton was a First Team All-Region 5D wide receiver in his junior season. He narrowed his offer list to Wake Forest and Indiana in early July. It didn’t take him long to determine that Indiana would be his college home. He committed at the end of that month, just before the start of two-a-days going into his senior season.
North Stafford Assistant Coach John Harris had a lot of good things to say about his star wide out.
““Javon is the ultimate team player. He can play man defense at an elite level as a corner, he can stretch a defense as a wide receiver can even play quarterback if asked to,” Harris said. “He’s a natural leader that never misses practice or workouts. It’s like having a coach on the field.”
