2027’s Josiah Everett brings a cerebral approach to the QB position

Josiah Everett is one of the best players from the Wilmington, DE area in the Class of 2027.  


The 5-foot-1, 100-pound Everett, who attends Springer Middle School, is a dynamic player that works as a quarterback. 



Everett has earned plenty of recognition during his career, such as winning the Mollatta Award and being selected for the One Journey Bowl and Mid Atlantic 2020 Showcase. 

Everett is humbled by the accolades. 

“It means that I’m getting one step closer to my goal,” Everett said. “My goal is to be recognized by a college program and to get a college scholarship.”

Everett has been selected for the following camps: NextGen, QBA, and RNR Top 100 Combine.


No matter the opponent, every game Everett is determined to give it his all. 


Everett is going all out. 


The motor is always at full throttle whenever Everett steps between the lines.


“My mindset is always to score and lead my teammates to a win,” Everett said. 


Everett has great passion and energy whenever he’s on the field. Everett tells why he enjoys the game of football so much. 


“Since I was born, I loved football,” Everett said. “It’s competitive and so am I.”


Everett has learned many valuable lessons from playing football that he applies to his everyday life. 


“You have to work hard for what you want,” Everett said. “Not everything will be handed to you.” 


Everett shares his favorite memory of playing football.


“My favorite memory is when I threw my first touchdown pass,” Everett said. “It was a 25-yard tight end pop pass to Dillon Thompson. I’ll never forget it.”


Everett takes his role as one of the leaders on the team very seriously. Everett makes sure he’s a daily positive influence on his peers.


“I lead by example,” Everett said. “On the field, I guide them and off the field, I keep in touch with them. The best advice I give is to always keep your head up.”


Everett is appreciative of having amazing male role models that are supportive.


“Coach G taught me that communication is key,” Everett said. “The best advice I’ve gotten is that when it comes to making a throw, be in a hurry but don’t rush.”


Everett patterns his mentality after this transcendent athlete. 

“I look up to Michael Vick,” Everett said. “He made the quarterback position entertaining and amazing to watch.”
