The DMV is a hotbed for football talent each and every year. Washington D.C., Maryland, and Virginia always have bright prospects.
2027 quarterback Tristan Sabb is hoping he can be the next in line on a long list of athletes who have blazed their trail to the college and pro ranks from the area.
Sabb hails from Fort Washington, Maryland about 25 minutes south of the nation’s capital.
Though he’s undecided on where he plans to attend high school at the moment, he will be starring for Maryland Heat 14u this fall.
Leading up to the season, Sabb has done plenty to separate himself from the competition.
“This spring I’ve been working on my footwork with my quarterback trainers and coaches, reading coverages, and getting the timing down with my receivers on their routes … I’ve been working on getting the ball out faster and my quarterback IQ,” Sabb said.
In addition to working with a trainer and honing in on his game, Sabb has also been working with a strength and conditioning coach as well as doing cryotherapy a few times a week to assist with recovery.
Sabb also made a big step in putting himself out there, competing against some of the nation’s best at the UA Next Middle School All-American Camp.
With all the work he’s put in, Sabb is setting a high bar for himself and for what his team can achieve.
“My goals for this upcoming season is to go undefeated and win the national championship with my team,” Sabb said.
As far as what he brings on the field, Sabb says he’s the total package.
“I’m a leader and a good teammate, I like to motivate and push my team when we face adversity,” Sabb said. “I would like to describe myself as an imposer.”
“I do well running, passing the ball, reading coverage and overcoming pressure.”
Sabb is hoping as his career grows he can continue to climb the ladder of football successes.
