Covering High School Sports in America


Washington, D.C. has produced more than its fair share of outstanding high school players that eventually matriculate to the NFL.

But among that impressive list of professional alumni, was any more dominant in the high school ranks than former Dunbar (Washington, D.C.) standout Vernon Davis?

At 6-foot-4, 220-pounds in high school, the tight end was an absolute physical specimen, clocking a 10.7 time in the 100m dash while boasting a 39-inch vertical leap.

He had 16 total touchdowns combined in his last two seasons while also seeing action returning kicks and playing both linebacker and defensive end.

In addition to the impact he made on the gridiron, Davis also excelled on the hardwood for Dunbar.
