UW Rising Stars camp participants brave the heat and slippery turf to show off their skills



With triple-digit weather and a slippery new turf presenting challenges, University of Washington recruiting targets and prospects have managed to earn various MVP positions at the Huskies’ Rising Stars football camp, including David Wells.

A wide catcher from Lakes High School in Lakewood, Wash., Wells didn’t seem so bothered by the conditions as he clocked one of the fastest times with an unofficial time of 4.46 seconds in the sprint 40 meters.

Wells, a rising junior, has no offer from the Huskies yet, but has performed well and earned an MVP award in his position.

His 40 time was remarkable as the newly installed turf at the Husky Stadium presented foot challenges for many players, causing them to slip during drills and resulting in slower than normal sprint times.

Rahshawn Clark, a wide catcher and ascending sophomore from Life Christian Academy in Federal Way, Wash., With several Pac-12 offers, had a good performance running a 4.68 in the 40. The catcher 6ft, 180lb showed fluidity as it accommodated several balls deep off target.

Jasiah Wagoner, a 2023 defensive back from Spanaway Lake High in Spanaway, Wash., Won an MVP award for defensive back. Having received an offer from UW earlier this year, he took advantage of the camp to continue to show that he will be part of the next wave of top defensive backs coming out of the state.

Jason Brown, target for Husky’s running back from Seattle’s O’Dea High, was recently offered to Husky. He also received MVP honors.

Jayden Limar, a rising junior from Lake Stevens High in Lake Stevens, Wash., And the class of 2023, also won home MVP recognition. Limar showed an attractive flurry and demonstrated his receiving skills. He impressed throughout the day with his versatility in the exercises.

Wide receiver Denzel Boston from Emerald Ridge in Puyallup, Wash. Made the most of his time in the sun, winning an MVP wide receiver award. He caught several fades in the end zone, including a one-handed one with a defender draped over him.

Boston also provided the day’s camp game. On an outside route with a defender jumping over him, he caught a deflected pass that would have been a clean interception and had an impressive sideline reception.

Tight end Bronte Gallo, a native of British Columbia, had the longest trip of all participants to attend Camp UW. Without a high school football season in Canada to make his name known to recruiters, he transferred to a school in Clearwater, Florida.

While traveling to Seattle, Gallo attended other football camps in Georgia, Virginia, Ohio and Indiana. He won a tight MVP at UW.
