Player Focus Breakdowns

CFI goes INSIDE the game and into the film room to break down some of the best players in the Charlotte Metro!

Player Focus: DB J'Trell Washington - Mallard Creek


Watching J’Trell’s film was truly a pleasure. He was a 2018 All Conference I-Meck Player last season, and as a Class of 2020 player, you could see him as a safety, a corner, or even an outside linebacker in sub packages with his physical tools and frame.

The biggest thing that stands out about Washington is his physicality. This kid loves to hit - and tackles well in space, on the perimeter and inside the box. He really flows and pursues well from the safety position especially. There was one play in particular on his film he chases down a legit D1 player and saves what would have been a touchdown 99% of the time. Great competitor.

He has very good speed, and his coverage skills are good, he reacts well to routes that are breaking inside and outside well, taking the proper read steps in coverage and reacting to the ball well and meeting the receiver when the ball arrives in great position - this is demonstrated well against a very good team on his film when he goes up and breaks up what would have been a touchdown pass.

J’Trell also gets it done in the classroom with a 1300 SAT score, and works hard in the weight room with a 285 bench press and a 460 squat on a 5’11 165 pound frame, which is some very impressive strength. This is a player that should be playing on Saturdays as the next step after high school for sure.
