Duvawn Wallace and the Douglas County High School football team just wrapped spring practice and 6-foot, 240-pound defensive tackle is looking forward to his final prep season.
"I am the only returning starter on defense so I am going to be defensive team captain," Wallace told GAVSV.com. "I had a really good spring and so did my teammates."
In addition to competing on the practice fields the past few months, Douglas County's newest defensive team captain has also been busy welcoming a few college coaches into town.
"I have been hearing from Jackson State, Tennessee, Tennessee State and Ole Miss," Wallace said. "Some of those coaches have been to my school to see me. I have been sending my tapes to coaches."
Now that spring is over, Wallace is looking forward to attending a few camps around the southeast.
"I am going to camp at Tennessee," Wallace said. "I am also going to go to the D-Line camp (in Georgia)."
Wallace excels on the football field as a massive run-stopper for Douglas County.
He says that he focuses every play on one certain thing.
"I do whatever it takes to win," Wallace said. "I try each play to push offensive linemen into the backfield and free up my linebackers and secondary to make plays. I am not self-absorbed. I don't care about stats. I just want to win and help my team."
