Player Spotlight: Patrick Forsyth C/O ’21 Tailback/Slot/Athlete

Patrick Forsyth is an athletic playmaker for Saint Cloud High School in Saint Cloud, Florida.

Forsyth plays several positions for the Bulldogs, as he sees time at slot and wideout, but most often lines up at tailback.

Forsyth’s size reminds us of Frank Gore Jr, tailback at Southern Mississippi, and son of future Hall of Famer, Frank Gore.

In the weight-room, Forsyth is able to squat well over twice his body weight, as he has a max squat of 405 pounds!

Forsyth also has some wheels, as he runs a timed 4.6 in the forty-yard-dash!

In his senior campaign, Forsyth made the most of the opportunities that he had, only being able to play in eight games.

Forsyth would finish the season with over 1,200 yards rushing on the year, with 15 touchdowns, as he went over the 100-yard mark in 6/8 games played.

Forsyth would also add nearly 125 yards receiving on just 11 catches, averaging over 11 yards per catch, and one touchdown.

Those impressive stats were enough to earn Forsyth some impressive accolades once his season came to a close.

Forsyth finished with being unanimously voted to First Team All-Conference Honors, as well as Second Team All-State Honors.

“My senior year was amazing,” Forsyth said. “I loved my team and I feel like we worked very hard together. We finished the season at 6-2, and I was pleased with how we played.”

Aside from his playmaking abilities and his obvious talents with the ball in his hands, Forsyth believes that he separates himself in many ways from other players.

“My coaches have always told me that I have a hard-work ethic,” Forsyth said. “They also tell me that I am a natural leader. I am the quiet type in the classroom, because maintaining a high GPA is important to me and my journey in this game.

“On the field, however, I show a different side of me; the competitive side. I also feel as though I am a very coachable player, and I take the necessary steps to get ahead, such as working with trainer. What they taught me translated to the field.

“Although I do that extra work, I know I have areas that need to improve and I strive to do just that. My junior year, I played slot, and I worked on my route-running skills relentlessly. I also in the National Honors Society, as well as earning academic honors.”

Speaking of academics, Forsyth has an impressive 3.9 GPA in the classroom, allowing for him to qualify for several top programs in the country.

Forsyth currently has two offers, and it will be interesting to see where he decides to sign and take his talents next fall!
