Player Spotlight: Daniel Agboto C/O ’21 Defensive End/Outside Linebacker SIGNED College of Dupage

Daniel Agboto is a sensational senior football player for Hillwood High School in Nashville, Tennessee.

The dynamic playmaker is a force on defense, seeing time at both defensive end, and outside linebackers for the Hilltoppers.

Standing at 6’2, 230 pounds, Agboto has great size to play outside linebacker, and his frame reminds of us Kenneth Murray for the Los Angeles Chargers.

Agboto has a current 4.8 forty-yard-dash time, as well as a vertical leap of 38″ and a broad jump of 8’2!

Agboto also dominates in the weight-room, with his 450 pound max squat to go along with a bench press max of 300 pounds and a power clean of 245 pounds!

Although Agboto walked of the field in his last game losing to the eventual state champions in the playoffs, he felt he gave it his all in his career.

“I feel like we had a successful season,” Agboto said. “Covid-19 stacked the odds against us, but we still played well. I am pleased with what I was able to do in my four years at Hillwood High School.”

Agboto would finish his senior season with 38 tackles in the Covid-shortened season. He also showed that he can effect the quarterback, with his 11 quarterback hurries, in addition to 3 sacks on the season.

In the run game, Agboto embarrassed opposing ballcarriers, with his 16 tackles for loss, and 3 forced fumbles on the year!

Agboto played with a never say die attitude, and that served him well in his career.

“Throughout my years at Hillwood, we had our ups and downs,” Agboto said. “We had a few games where we were down by more than 30 points, but I never let that slow me down. The clock means nothing to me while on the field.

“I play to the final whistle and I lay it all out on the line every time I suit up. I love this game and I put my all into it. A winning mindset, coupled with a determined group of people can be the recipe for a successful team and culture.”

It sounds like Agboto is wise beyond his years!

Agboto takes care of his business in the classroom as well, as he currently holds a 3.0 GPA, which will qualify him for next level ball.

With 17 total offers, including Peru State and Linder Wilson, it will interesting to see where this talented young man lands next fall!
