Javien Toviano is a name you’d be wise to keep in mind when considering the top up-and-coming talent in Texas.
The 6-foot-1, 170-pound Toviano, a Quarterback/Cornerback/ATH who attends Arlington Martin, is a member of the 2019 Youth1 Freshman450.
Toviano is extremely thankful for the accolade that places him amongst the best of the best in the Class of 2023.
“This honestly feels amazing. This is just the beginning of reaching platforms nationwide,” Toviano said. “I couldn’t put into words how much this is an honor to be recognized nationally!”
Toviano doesn’t play football for individual achievements but the Freshman450 serves as inspiration that his grinding is paying off.
“This just says that the hard work that I’ve been putting in, people are starting to notice it and it shows evidently,” Toviano said.
Toviano proudly lists other recent gratifying milestones.
“I recently helped lead my team to a 8-2 season, undefeated in district,” Toviano said. “Also, being chosen by Coach Bob Wager to be a part of our varsity team for the remainder of our season. Super excited for the opportunity!”
Toviano describes the components he enjoys about playing on each side of the ball.
“I enjoy being the leader of an offense. Playing the QB position allowed our coaching staff to game-plan explosive plays throwing our opponents defenses off balance,” Toviano said. “I also enjoy playing cornerback, because I love making plays physically, and ultimately it helps me understand concepts that will help me be successful offensively.”
Toviano shares what he relishes the most about football.
“I love having the opportunity as young men, as myself, to strive physically and mentally to accomplish something great and build relationships!” Toviano said.
Toviano prides himself on his versatility but patterns his mentality after this specific playmaker.
“I would say I model my game after Jalen Ramsey minus the trash talking. I am getting into playing DB and loving it,” Toviano said. “Of course I am an athlete that could play all over the field. But if I would have to model my game after someone it would definitely be Jalen.”
Toviano breaks down some strengths of his game.
“Making plays and also getting my team going when facing adversity!” Toviano said.
Toviano details his plans to elevate his game to another gear.
“I’m working a lot on my technique at specific positions. More of footwork and explosiveness and change of directions which will ultimately help me be a better athlete,” Toviano said. “Reading and understand the games concepts offensively and defensively and techniques that will allow me to be successful at those assignments in game.”
Toviano will participate in spring ball with his high school and also attend camps at Baylor, SMU, TCU and others.
“I am preparing by working on techniques that will make me better as a player right now as we are in season,” Toviano said.
Toviano has taken a massive leap forward in his development. With his attention to detail and elite athleticism, the future is bright for the talented Texan.
“I would say I’m progressing plentiful, from the player I was last year. This past offseason really helped me separate from the competition state wide,” Toviano said. “I still have room to improve and will take advantage of every opportunity I have to get better every day. Definitely got bigger, faster and stronger and looking to add on to that.”
