Three of the top athletes on the 7v7 circuit within the state of Oregon have been Silas Starr, Zee Lee, and Jailen Hammer. Each has excelled for EForce against some of the nation’s top talent in recent tournaments. Even more impressive is the fact that they are underclassmen, with multiple years left to do their thing. Expect to hear a great deal more on each kid as the off season continues.


Silas Starr 6-2 185 Fr. WR Central Catholic

One of top players in the nation for the 2020 class. Silas is a future 4* recruit who was recently offered by Oregon. The freshman standout caught 22 passes and 5 TD’s for the Rams this past year, earning all conference honors.

Starr has excelled this off season as part of the EForce Oregon Breed 7v7 Team. His 6 TDs thus far help to solidify him as one of the top youngsters nationally. With the Ducks coming in early, expect a host of the country’s top teams to be knocking at his door shortly.

You will see Silas and teammate Cade Knighton (QB) lead Central Catholic and one of the west coast’s top perimeters in the coming seasons.


(L-R)   Silas Starr, Zakhayas Lee, Jailen Hammer

Zakhayas Lee 5-11 180 So. ATH/Safety Oregon City

Lee ranks as one of the top players in Oregon for the 2019 class. He will be a state and conference player of the year candidate on both sides of the football next season.

Zee went off as a Sophomore earning 1st team all league honors, while rushing for 1,215 yards and 14 TD’s. His 12.3 yards per carry, and 15.4 yards per catch average, speak to his versatility.

The kid out of OC has had breakout off season thus far with the EForce group. As of right now he should be considered the defensive MVP for the 7v7 season. He has been a lock down defender with both of his INT’s being returned for TD’s.

I can’t say enough good things about Zee as a kid. He wears his heart on his sleeve and any athlete who plays with him benefits.


Jailen Hammer 5-11 180 So. ATH Sprague 

Hammer has been unreal for the second 7v7 season in a row. If I’m the Sprague Olympians he would be touching the ball a minimum of 15 times a game next season.

His 3 one handed TD grabs last weekend at the NW Showcase are only a glimpse of his freakish ability. Jailen and Silas Starr are tied with 6 touchdowns, behind 6-6 D1 WR Cole Turner who has 12.

You can expect Jailen to be a GVC Player of the Year favorite next season as the Oly’s will once again compete for a conference title.
