Athletic Accomplishments

This young man plays football at East View H.S., competing in highly regarded 5A play in the Greater Austin Area. As only a sophomore from his Defensive End position along the Defensive Line, DJ was a dominant force en-route to his Unanimous 1st Team All-District Honors. Also able to play Defensive Tackle and Tight End without skipping a beat, DJ's diverse skill set makes him an incredibly valuable asset to his team. This past fall as a junior, DJ once again earned 1st Team All-District Honors, was named to the Austin American Statesman 2021 All-Central Texas Second Team, as well as the Padilla Poll 2nd Team All-State Team. To say he is a young man to keep a close eye on would be a tremendous understatement!<br /><br /><span style="text-decoration: underline; color: #ff0000;"><strong>Junior Accolades</strong></span><br /><strong>Padilla Poll 2nd Team All-State Honors<br />1st&nbsp;Team All-District Honors<br />Austin American Statesman 2021 All-Central Texas Second Team<br />Full-Time Varsity Starter</strong><br /><br /><span style="text-decoration: underline; color: #ff0000;"><strong>Sophomore Accolades</strong></span><br /><strong>Unanimous 1st Team All-District Honors</strong><br /><strong>Full-Time Varsity Starter</strong><br /><br /><span style="text-decoration: underline; color: #ff0000;"><strong>Freshman Accolades</strong></span><br /><strong>"A" Team Starter<br /><br /><span style="text-decoration: underline; color: #ff0000;">Track Accolades (Discus, Shot Put, Hurdles)</span><br />Hurdles - Area Qualifier<br />Discus - Regional Qualifier, H.S.
