Player Spotlight: Melvin West C/O ’21 Defensive Tackle/Middle Linebacker

Melvin West is a sensational senior playmaker for Liberty County High School in Hinesville, Georgia, and he is the teammate of A’Dontae Rhodes, who we have previously written on.

West plays defense for the Panthers, and he sees time at both defensive tackle, and middle linebacker.

Due to the Covid-19 restrictions, West was only able to see time in a few games, and he was able to grab 6 tackles on the year, as well as 1 fumble recovery.

West also sees time on offense playing tight end and guard, showing coaches that he is versatile and puts his team before himself to fill in when needed.

In the weight-room, West does not disappoint, as he has a max squat of 500 pounds! He also has a max bench press of 275 pounds.

“I feel like I am a great leader for my team,” West said. “I was listed as a team captain this season, so I think that says a lot. My ability to soak up information allows for me to play at my full potential, day in and day out.

“I am truly a student of the game and I am willing to work through things, no matter what is thrown my way.”

While West may not have any offers as of yet, it will be interesting to see where he ends up!
