Ethan Lawson the 6″5 OL out of TN | Class 2027

Class of 2027 prospect Ethan Lawson’s stock has shot up about as high as the 6-foot-5  lineman is tall since the spring.

The incoming eighth grader weighs in at 315 pounds, has an 80 inch wingspan, and 32 1/4 inch arm length. 

He received his first college offer in March from Eastern Kentucky, to which he was “totally shocked and excited” about.

“My family and I did not expect anything like that to happen so early,” Lawson said. “It made me start to think that I have a legit shot at playing division one college football. 

“I am very blessed to have received the offer from Coach (Erik) Losey. It is something that I will never forget. I started getting a lot of follows on twitter shortly after I received the offer, it has really been a blessing.” 

Lawson will be playing for Rye Cove’s eighth grade and junior varsity team this fall in Virginia – a small school near Duffield.

A big change to Lawson’s training routine has been adding weightlifting to his regimen in middle school.

“My last Bench max was 235, last squat was 315,” Lawson said. “When we squat we do milk crate squats, that means we have to go down and touch our butts to a milk crate that is about 13 inches tall”

“That’s a long way down when you are 6 feet 5 inches.” 

Since receiving his first offer, Lawson has remained in the spotlight as he’s continued make strides.

He was named to the Southwest Virginia Elite team that played in the Big Blue Bash in Richlands, Virginia. He started at left tackle in the Tennessee Future Stars Game, and was recognized by B2C as a OL of the Year Watchlist

Still with one year left before high school football begins, Lawson is eager thinking about what’s ahead.

“Our school has a new coaching staff and there is a lot of excitement around the football program, Lawson said. “The coaches are letting me practice with the varsity team some this year, I get to work against some older and more physical kids and that will only make me better. 

“I can’t wait to battle with my teammates and help them compete for a championship next season.”
