Devwah Whaley Ranked: Top 10 Running Backs

August 5, 2014

Devwah Whaley, a Bermuda-born American football player, has continued to improve his game, rising to be ranked at number nine in his position as a sophomore running back, according to American sports network ESPN.

Mr. Whaley, originally from the island but now living in Texas, is still too young to play varsity-level football at only 17-years-old, but that didn’t stop the University of Houston from offering the teenager a scholarship after coaches saw him perform at the school’s sports camp in 2013.

Coming with a long history of excellence in sports, particularly track and field, Mr. Whaley’s physical abilities are second-to-none in his age group, making him an attractive potential piece of the puzzle when it came to the success of the team that he played for during the 2014 season, Central High School of the 40th Division in Texas.

Before the season began, Central High School head coach Toby Foreman was very excited to have the young Bermudian on his roster.

“I’ve never had a freshman that looked like him. His potential, in my opinion, is unlimited,” Mr. Foreman said, according “I’ve never had a kid get offered at that young of an age and I coached a first-round draft pick, two-time Pro Bowler.”

With Whaley’s skillset including incredible speed, stamina, and on-the-field intelligence, Foreman plans to test him in a multitude of positions and situations in order to help the young player to narrow down where his talents will best serve his team at large, giving him the opportunity to better prepare for the rigorous challenges that lay ahead for him at University once he completes high school.
