Quarterback Trevon Wofford has been thru the fire the last few seasons as the starting quarterback at Cedartown High School, and thru all of that experience, the senior has come out stronger. Over the years we have watched Wofford elevate his game to another level, and this season his Cedartown squad is 6-1, and hovering around the top 10 in most polls in the state of Georgia.
The excitement is sky high for the Cedartown community with their only loss to top ranked Cartersville. Wofford talked about how his senior year has gone so far, “My season has gone great just like I expected! I’ve worked so hard in the class room & weight room. I’ve gained more weight and getting stronger each week.”
One of the major improvements Wofford made during the offseason was his running ability, and that was perfectly showcased in last weekend’s game against Central-Carrollton. The senior dropped back into the pocket, felt the oncoming pass rush, so he scrambled up the middle, and then did something I have never seen from a 6’5″ football player – he completely jumped over a defender. The aerial acrobatics were so amazing that Wofford was able to easily run away with the “Week 8 Top Play” vote.
Wofford’s hard work is certainly starting to pay dividends, and his recruitment has seen an uptick in interest. Right now Marshall, Eastern Kentucky, Iowa, UT-Chattanooga, West Georgia, Mercer, South Carolina, Purdue, Western Kentucky and Michigan State have reached out during the fall and have expressed interest in the lanky QB.
The only visits he has set in stone are Eastern Kentucky & West Georgia – both schools being the first to offer the talented signal-caller. Marshall University is another possible visit, and if he continues his current senior year pace, even more colleges should jump on board.
Still, there is room for improvement, and Wofford would be the first to admit. “I think I can improve on my foot work and become more of a leader than I am right now,” he said.
As mentioned earlier, Wofford has made tremendous progress in the classroom. Five semesters have passed since he initially signed up for our recruiting service, and he has increased his GPA from a 2.9 to a 3.6. He will be taking his ACT October 28th and SAT on November 7th.
On the field, Wofford’s improvement are equally similar, and after making tremendous strides as a passer from sophomore to junior year; Wofford has really improved as a runner, and is showing a lot of grit between the tackles. His growing mental toughness will serve him well as a dual threat QB at the next level.
When asked about who he models his game after, the senior replied, “I model myself after Tom Brady’s mind, but the agility and athleticism of Cam Newton.” That’s a dangerous combination to say the least.
The 2018 recruiting class in Georgia is probably the deepest group the state has ever seen, but Wofford’s natural abilities when coupled with his hardwork elevates himself above most of the remaining uncommitted prospects. More colleges are sure to jump on board and start to recruit him, especially if he continues to have his Cedartown team flying high into the playoffs.
