Devwah Whaley Makes School History In Texas

November 13, 2015

devwah-whaleyDevwah Whaley, a Bermuda-born American football player who has been called “one of the more talented athletes in the 2016 class,” has made history at Beaumont Central High School in Texas by becoming the first player in the school’s history to be invited to the Under Armour All-American game.

A story in the Beaumont Enterprise says, “The celebration was a fitting tribute for the enormity of Devwah Whaley’s football success at Central.

In front of the student body during a presentation Thursday in the Central gymnasium, Whaley, sporting a red bow tie over a black and neon green No. 16 jersey, became the first player in school history to be invited to the Under Armour All-American game.”

“It’s a blessing and it means a lot to me to have this kind of support,” said Whaley, who has been adamant about verbally committing to either Texas, Texas A&M, Georgia, Arkansas or Oklahoma in Orlando, Fl. “I can only thank God for it. It’s a big deal to play in this game.

“It means a lot, not only to me, but it shows that anyone from around here can do something big as long as you work hard for it.”

“Whaley is ranked as the No. 3 running back in the country by ESPN and remains the most coveted uncommitted recruit in Southeast Texas. In his senior season, Whaley has rushed for 1,282 yards and 15 touchdowns on 205 carries.”
