WR/DB Jaylen Webb is a player to be on the lookout for in the Arlington, Texas area. The 6-foot, 150-pound Webb, who attends Kennedale High School, is chosen for the 2019 Youth1 Freshman450.
Webb is thankful to be selected for the national list. It’s an honor that he certainly doesn’t take for granted.
“It feels good knowing that you are one of the best but I know I can still get a lot better,” Webb said.
Webb intends to use the accolade as a springboard to future success. Being included in the Freshman450 gives Webb the confidence to strive for greatness.
“It means that I am good at a lot of things but I still have some work to do,” Webb said.
Webb is so passionate about the game of football that he can’t emphasize one aspect over the other.
“I don’t have a favorite part because I love everything about it,” Webb said.
Webb explains why he enjoys the positions he plays.
“I play wide receiver and DB because I love catching passes and making plays on the ball,” Webb said.
Webb describes an improvement in his game that he’s proud of.
“I am getting a lot better on my route running and making catches that don’t seem possible to catch,” Webb said.
Webb lists making the varsity football team at his high school as one of his greatest accomplishments. Webb was moved up because of his outstanding playmaking and tremendous penchant for being impactful.
“I had a lot of big plays and hard catches and for that I was moved up to varsity,” Webb said.
Webb believes he has an elite catching radius and the capability to come down with any pass thrown to him.
“My biggest strength is my catching ability,” Webb said. “And route running.”
Webb patterns his play at receiver after this standout pro.
“DeAndre Hopkins is my favorite because of his catching ability and his route running,” Webb said. “He can just make spectacular catches.”
Webb shares what’s upcoming on his slate.
“The only camp I am signed up for is the NextGen Camp and I am still deciding on what 7-on-7 team I will be playing for,” Webb said.
Webb will continue to hone his skills so that he can be successful at the high school level and beyond.
“I am working on being a well-rounded receiver,” Webb said. “What I want to improve is my speed and endurance.”
