Cervantes has kicked off his high school career as a nice role player on his varsity squad, and will look to expand on that in 2019. The 2022 athlete was getting varsity reps even his first game where he was picking up blitzes from one of the more intense defenses in 5-A. Cervantes does so much right at a fundamental stand point for his age. He runs the football with urgency, shows a nice athletic burst right when gets the football, and gets up field quickly. Blocking he is physical, has good hand placement and keeps a flat back while engaged. For a pass-happy team like Marietta, Cervantes skill set was necessary, and how he got on the field so early in his career. He is also a big time defensive player even though his varsity film does not show. Cervantes has very good instincts pursuing the football, his above average acceleration puts the 2022 recruit in good positioning more times than not. He is a tough physical tackler. Interested to see how he fills out over the next few years, but definitely impressed with the work ethic the Marietta student-athlete displays.
