David Postell might not literally dunk on defenders as the ‘posterizing’ title might suggest, but I would argue that the senior did the football equivalent last week to his rival South Paulding. The East Paudling senior sent guys flying in their big win last week and was announced to our Bully Squad for Week 5.
The 6’5″ 270 lbs. right tackle was soon after voted our Offensive Lineman of the Week and also earned an offer from Jacksonville State. To put it succinctly, it’s been a good week, which already builds on to a great season for Postell.
“My senior year has been good so far we are 3-2 on the season but both games losing by 2 from mistakes that shouldn’t have happened that we looked over after the game and we keep coming back stronger,” Postell said.
If you watch the 2024 prospect’s film over the last year, you can tell he has made some nice improvements. Postell quickly talked about that.
“I feel like I have improved the most in coming off the ball in run game as well as finishing my blocks.”
The big man has seen his recruitment garner more and more attention since the evaluation period in April and May. The most recent offer from Jacksonville State joins programs like Colgate, Middle Tennessee State, Georgia State, and UAB.
“My recruiting has been great so far with 11 D1 offers as of right now. I can’t be any more blessed to be in the position I am in truly thankful for everything I have earned and have to thank god for it. I have a few visits planned; being Georgia, Jax State, Mercer, Colgate, and Tennessee Tech.”
The road-grating offensive lineman has continued to show why he is one of the top offensive tackle prospects remaining in this class. One aspect that separates Postell from the competition is his mindset.
“I feel like my mindset on the field is whoever is in front of me can’t stand with me. It’s really me vs. me when you step on the field; just have to think that no one can stop you no matter who they are.”
With the regular season now 40% complete for Postell, we asked him how he would like to finish up the year at East Paulding.
“The goals for the rest of the season are definitely to keep improving and be 1-0 each week focusing on each team to make it to the playoffs this year and keep it pushing forward.”
The East Paulding program is on the rise in our opinion. Postell is part of a strong line of scrimmage that the Raiders deploy on both sides of the football, and they are honestly under the radar for the moment. They should continue to make noise this 2023 season, and so should Postell’s recruitment, so be sure to follow @RecruitGeorgia on Twitter/X to hear the latest on the senior and players all across the state of Georgia.
