As FSG enters year 8 we have been able to witness the top talent from all areas of Georgia. With the camp in Savannah this weekend, we take the time to identify some of the best players FSG has seen from the Savannah area.
5. William Griffin – Griffin is an explosive athlete with excellent quickness that will translate well at the next level. He is a top level running back and the skill set to be an elite corner. His quick feet and explosiveness are skill that we think could land him as one of the top 5-10 corners in the state on that side of the ball. As only a 9th grader, his story is still unfolding.
4. John Wesley Kennedy – Kennedy was your do it all athlete with the ability to play every skill position on the field. He has sprinters speed and great balance. He used these skill sets to have over 7000 career yards in high school, winning a state title and named 2A Player of the Year. The class of 2017 star is now a freshman at Georgia Southern.
3. Fuches “Duece” Lewis – Lewis is a coaches dream as a kid that is constantly evaluating his game and determined to get better. He is a relentless pass rusher, quick enough to blow by you and strong enough to run over you. He may not have the explosive first step of Savannah’s Nolan Smith, but his game and passion is very similar.
2. Nolan Smith – Smith stood out his first FSG camp due to his confidence and passion for the game. Rarely have we seen kids that had more fun playing the game than Smith, and that translates to a drive to be the best. This was highlighted by his multiple sacks during his 8th grade game culminating in a strip sack that was recovered and returned for a game clinching TD. Now, Nolan is the #1 defensive end in the country in the class of 2019, and already committed to the University of Georgia
1. Demetris Robertson – Dee had one of the 2 or 3 most impressive camps we have ever witnessed in FSG. It culminated in the 1 on 1 session ending with him making a ridiculous catch on a deep ball on offense, turning around the next play and making a leaping one-handed interception. He ended up being ranked the #1 athlete in the country in the class of 2016. As a freshman at Cal, he broke multiple freshman receiving records held by Desean Jackson on the way to being named 1st team freshman all-American
There are several other Savannah area players that could be on this list like Jeremy Smith, Micheal Robertson, Javonte Middleton and Weston Franklin to name a few. In short, Savannah has supplied a lot of talent to the Future Stars Game. Will you be next, register now at www.futurestarsgame.com.
