Douglas County's Wallace Enjoys UAB Camp

Duvawn Wallace recently attended the Blazers' football camp in Birmingham, Ala.

Douglas County High defensive tackle Duvawn Wallace is balancing his time this summer working out on the practice fields and planning trips to college camps.

The talented run-stuffer recently made the trip to Birmingham, Ala. to take part in UAB's camp and came away impressed.

"I had a really good time," Wallace told "I enjoyed the feel of the campus. I liked the way the coaches worked with everyone."

In addition to UAB, Wallace plans on attending more camps throughout the summer - albeit he doesn't know which ones yet.

"I am still working out my schedule," Wallace said. "I want to go to a camp at Tennessee if I can."

When Wallace isn't hitting the road, he is hitting the weights and the pads on the practice fields at Douglas County.

This summer he is working with his teammates with the hopes of building a foundation for the 2008 season. So far, Wallace is pleased with his progress.

"I have been working hard," Wallace said. "I have been working on my weight. I have lost about 20 pounds. I am now around 337 pounds right now. I want to be around 315 to 320 for the season."
