Every once and awhile a kid comes through the state who is on another level. That said as freshman Silas Starr (6-2 185 WR 20′) of Central Catholic has the potential of being one of the top players in the country for the 2020 class.
Separate from his freakish athletic ability, Starr is a kid willing to put in the work. This past off season he was dominant when healthy, as part of the EForce 7v7 group that represented Oregon, and won the IMG qualifier against Ford Sports in Seattle.
It’s rare for any freshman to play varsity ball at the highest classification level. Silas is the exception to the rule, ranking as one of the top players in the Mt Hood and the state altogether right now. His 22 receptions and 5 TDs thus far, make him a primary weapon for the (6-3) Rams heading into the playoffs.
Starr is incredibly humble and has learned from the likes of Senior WR Trey Davis, one of the region’s most underrated athletes. Speaking on his guys he says, “My coaches and teammates have been the one’s putting me in situations to perform .. They have really helped me a great deal.”
Central has a special group of young athletes representing the 2018 and 2020 class. Starr projects as a 4* recruit that will have a host of options from some of the top universities in the land.
Most are familiar with fellow freshman QB Cade Knighton, who is widely considered one of the top prospects nationally for his class and position. This combo, with the addition of elite 2020’s Miles Jackson and Ethan Flynn, put CC in a unique position. If you double team one someone else will burn you.
The future is bright for Starr and his teammates. It’s still early but this is a kid that we will be watching for years to come.
