ELCA’s Fenix Felton has been a breakout player in his junior year. The standout on both sides of the football has 600 all-purpose yards and 5 total touchdowns while grabbing 40 tackles and 1 interception too.
That last stat, the interception, was pretty noteworthy. The play ended up being one of the top plays of Week 8 in the state. The junior went up for a jump ball last week and rose up above everyone on the field to haul in this incredible turnover.
Felton’s impact has helped buoy the program into better games as of late, and ELCA is prime to make a push in the 2nd half of the season.
“My junior year so far has been great. I feel all is paying off and aligning according to my goals and plans for this season,” he said.
Felton continued to talk about the rest of the season and what he would like to accomplish as a team and personally.
“My team goals are to qualify for the state playoffs and a possible state championship. My personal goals are to finish the season with 1,800 all-purpose yards, ten plus touchdowns, 55 plus tackles, and 5 interceptions.”
Felton is an impressive athlete at 6’2″ and 185 lbs. and with a background in basketball, you can see why he is so confident going up for high-pointed interceptions. You have to like his tenacity in run support and his general impact on the field too; we are a big believer in the junior’s upside at the next level.
“Recruiting is starting up and I’m looking forward to the experience, but have not taken any official visits as of yet,” Felton said.
That should change in the coming weeks and certainly in the next few months. After the season Felton would like to work on two key areas to sharpen up his game.
“I need to continue to work on my defensive technique as well as my film study.”
Felton said he looks to dominate every aspect of the game when he is on the field. His unrelenting effort on top of his good athleticism and instincts for reading the play should make him a coveted recruit, so be sure to follow @RecruitGeorgia on Twitter/X to hear the latest on the junior and players all over the state.
