DMV Class of 2021 inside linebacker, Mason Woods, off-season recruitment has started off hot! This comes as no surprise after the Gar-Field High School standout emerged last season as one of the State of Virginia’s top defensive players. Last season, Woods accumulated an impressive 134 tackles including one scoop and score competing in Virginia’s highest classification 6A. His performance earned him Cardinal District Defensive Player of the Year, 1st Team All-District, 1st Team All-Region, and 2nd Team All-Nova honors. Coaches and teammates often refer to Mason as “The Bully” because he doesn’t ‘duck any smoke’. Last year at the Appalachia Prep Combine, Woods lived up to his name after roughing up a couple of running backs during the 1 on 1s period. He finished the combine as 1 of 2 sophomores ranked in the Top 10 of the highly competitive linebackers group featuring several Division I signees and commits. "I didn’t really see any DMV line-backers, but I knew Gabe [Fuster]. I was just there to compete and get my name out there in recruiting”, said Woods. The Woodbridge product doesn’t only get physical in a t-shirt, but as his tape will show Mason is one of the most physical and hard-hitting linebackers in the country. Woods’s physicality and skillset helped him earn his first Division I FBS offer from Liberty last week. Woods spoke in detail about how the offer came about after one of the Flames position coaches stopped by his high school.
