recruitNoVA Fab 30: Jack Forsyth of Falls Church High School is #26
by Andy Hilton, recruitNoVA
It’s a new day, and we have another lineman in the recruitNoVA Fab 30. This time, we head inside the beltway to Falls Church in order to recognize offensive lineman Jack Forsyth.
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. Landing recognition as the 26th best senior prospect region-wide is Falls Church High School lineman Jack Forsyth.
#26 Jack Forsyth (2019 OG 6-5 270) – Falls Church High School
Forsyth is a beast of an offensive lineman who is equally adept in pass protection as he is in run blocking. He’s excellent for getting to the next level on his blocks, and the stats of running back Dakwandre Marshall benefit from Forsyth’s efforts.
In 2017, Marshall rushed for 1,988 yards and 17 touchdowns on 257 carries for a 7.7 yards per carry average. Those numbers were tops in the beltway region, giving Falls Church an effective punch in the running game.
Coming into the summer, Forsyth held offers from Howard University and Hampton University, two long time rivals that will no longer play each other. Starting in 2018, Howard no longer schedules Hampton since the Pirates left for the Big South Conference and the Bison remain in the MEAC.
Forsythe’s emergence in 2017 helped the Jaguars to a 6-5 record, a season after finishing 7-4. Anchors like Jack Forsyth give Head Caoch Said Aziz hope that the Jaguars string of success will continue. The National District will provide some challenges this fall, most notably in the form of Lee, George Marshall High School and the newly rebranded Justice High School. The Wolves were formerly known as Stuart High School.
