Our #16 athlete is a teammate of the #17 athlete. #16 opens the holes while teammate Tyquan Brown (#17) runs through them.
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 #16 senior prospect region-wide is Freedom High School offensive lineman Josh Fuga.
#16 Josh Fuga (2019 DT/OT 6-2 322) – Freedom High School
Freedom had quite a playoff run in 2017, and they should be in a position to top that if Josh Fuga holds a leadership role in the trenches as expected. The Eagles ran the table in the regular season last fall, but fell in a shocking loss to C.D. Hylton in the second round of the Class 6 playoffs after topping South County in the opening round.
Josh piled up more than a dozen offers before deciding to commit to Temple at the end of May. He was the first verbal commitment for the Owls in their 2019 recruiting class. Temple won out over programs like Virginia, Wake Forest and Old Dominion.
For his junior season, Fuga was a Second Team Class 6 All-State selection as a defensive lineman.
