Jahmier Slade is one of the best players from the Greensboro, NC area in the Class of 2022.
The 6-foot, 175-pound Slade, who attends James B. Dudley High School, is a dynamic player that works as a quarterback.
Slade, who was a member of Youth1’s Freshman450 list last year, explains his strengths on the field.
“My ability to get things done and willingness to take on any role in order to achieve a win,” Slade said. “I’m able to go a lot of different stuff in order to make sure my team wins games.”
Slade shares the aspects of playing his position that he enjoys.
“The position that I’ve always played consistently and enjoyed the most is quarterback. What I most enjoy about the QB position is setting the tone of the game and leadership,” Slade said. “I’ve also had experience in the safety and wide receiver positions.”
Slade patterns his play after this standout.
“I try to play my own game but I look at a lot of tapes from Lamar Jackson’s college days,” Slade said. “I like his style of play and the way he controlled the offense.”
Slade has a strong passion for the game of football. This is shown through his actions and behavior on the field.
“My favorite part of playing football is the teamwork and unity,” Slade said. “I love coming together with my brothers for the common goal of winning football games.”
Slade does his best to show strong leadership to his teammates. It’s important to Slade that he sets a positive example on his peers.
“I try to show leadership by always being the first to arrive at practice and the last to leave. I believe that if I show my devotion during practice it will resonate with my teammates on and off the field,” Slade said. “The best advice I give to my teammates is to always bring your “A” game and give 100 percent when we step on the field.”
Slade has improved in many aspects since being selected to the Freshman450. Slade excitedly lists the strides he’s made in the last year.
“I feel more comfortable at the position of quarterback this year. Dudley is definitely a powerhouse school and I had big shoes to fill,” Slade said. “I’ve stepped it up in practice and workouts and I think that it will show on the field this upcoming season.”
Slade discusses what he’s been up to lately.

Slade outlines what he needs to work on to take his game to the next level.
“Reading different defensive coverages,” Slade said. “I will definitely be working on getting my 40 time down. Also, taking care of my body by eating right and getting stronger by concentrating more on weight lifting during workouts.”
