Through his outstanding playmaking and leadership, LB Camden Kopsick has earned a spot on the 2019 Youth1 Freshman450.
The 5-foot-10, 195-pound athlete, who attends Northside High School in Warner Robins, GA, says the recognition by Youth1 is extremely gratifying.
“I feel so honored and proud to be selected as one of the top players in the country and I just need to continue to work so I can become the best,” Kopsick said.
To Kopsick, being a member of the Freshman450 signals his arrival to the nation.
“It says I’m someone you need to watch out for,” Kopsick said.
Kopsick is currently sidelined with a broken collarbone but he’s vigorously rehabbing so he can return to the gridiron.
“I’m continuing to evolve with the game and becoming a stronger, faster, and smarter player,” Kopsick said. “Right now I’m recovering from my broken collarbone so I can get back on the field.”
Kopsick goes in depth with the aspects of his game which he intends to improve. It’s important to Kopsick that he prepares his game for the next level.
“I’m going to work more on my technique, speed, and strength. So really I’m going to work on everything and become a better all-around player,” Kopsick said. “I’m working most to improve my speed right now and to get in shape.”
Kopsick explains what he loves the most about being a football player. Delivering jarring hits and producing spectacular highlight moments are especially rewarding for Kopsick.
“I love hitting people and making a big play in the game,” Kopsick said.
Kopsick embraces the challenge at linebacker going against the opposition.
“I love how I have to be smart, agile, and physical to stop the man in front of you,” Kopsick said.
Kopsick proudly lists the characteristics which makes him an effective football player.
“Some of my strengths are that I bring physicality, confidence, leadership and smarts on the field,” Kopsick said.
Kopsick actually patterns his mentality after this offensive player.
“I try to model my game after Leonard Fournette as he is very physical, agile, and smart. He is my favorite player and I think highly of him,” Kopsick said. “I know he is a running back but I look to see how linebackers and defenders tackle him and bring someone as physical and fast as him down.”
Kopsick discusses some of his other most recent accomplishments.
“During the summer, I have played in the Georgia vs. Florida game where I made team Georgia for the Future Stars Game for the third consecutive year,” Kopsick said. “I also competed in NextGen's The Show hosted by IMG Academy.”
Kopsick has a busy slate ahead of him as he hits the road to get his name on the map.
“I’m going to be in spring ball and I’m going to compete in a few camps like NextGen and a few others like I did this past spring (University of Georgia, Clemson, University of Florida and University of Tennessee). Also in the off-season, I’ll be going to a speed trainer.”
