Mobile native a possibility at defensive end

A highly motivated athlete whose motor is stuck wide open, UMS Wright's Will Denniston is a force to be reckoned with at defensive end.

Denniston, 6-3, 225 pounds, uses a combination of speed and aggressiveness to be a major force in the outcome of the game.

Running a 4.68 in the 40-yard dash, Denniston's defensive prowess helped UMS Wright win the Class 4A State Championship his junior year.

Denniston is a regular at football camps throughout the Southeast, hoping to impress as many college scouts as possible.

The Mobile native was all over his team's stat sheet, posting 89 tackles (46 solo, 43 assists), nine sacks (for minus 51 yards), nine tackles for a loss, nine quarterback hurries, five forced fumbles, and two fumble recoveries as a junior. Denniston was selected to the All Region and All State first teams following his junior year.

Recruiting is a fluid process, and right now Denniston appears to be a fast rising prospect in the state of Alabama.

The D-End prospect has attended the Montgomery Combine, where he posted a slow forty time due to wet conditions. Plus, in previous years he has attended camps at Alabama, Auburn, and Southern Miss. Denniston has plans to attend those three camps again this year in addition to possibly Louisville, LSU, and maybe Ole Miss.

Denniston bench presses 365 pounds, and he squats 465. He carries a 78 average in the classroom and has scored 19 on the ACT.

He lists his college preferences as LSU, Alabama, Auburn, Louisville, and Southern Miss.
