Rising Star, OL Heyzen Vasquez, Westdale Middle School (Baton Rouge, Louisiana)

Heyzen Vasquez is a strong offensive lineman from the class of 2028. He has impressive physical traits, with a height of 5’9 and weighing in at 220 lbs. Heyzen is just as dominant on the field as he is in the classroom. The Rising Star from Westdale Middle School boasts an impressive 3.5 GPA, as well as amazing manners and an attention to detail. Heyzen played soccer for 7 years before transferring over to football last season. Heyzen has unlimited potential due to his raw talent, and the fact he has only been playing the game for a year.
