Personal touch: Wyatt’s first-lap sprint began with a track encounter. As a junior at Towers High School in Decatur, Georgia, Wyatt recognized some of the kids running in the 100 and asked his coach if he could compete.

“He was, like, ‘Hey, I can beat these guys,'” Dr Brian Montgomery, his football coach, says Dawg Nation. “His coach says, ‘Why don’t we go ahead and win the shot put first and we’ll see what we can do. If you do that, we’ll go over there and put you in the 100.’

Wyatt won the shot. Then he won the 100. Montgomery sent a video of the race to some college football contacts. Wyatt became the first Towers student to play at Georgia in four decades. “It was crazy how they got away so fast, but I just kept pushing hard, running hard,” Wyatt said. “I believed in myself. Once you believe in yourself, you know you can do anything. I believed I could beat them, and I did.

It’s easy to get lost in the shadow of Jordan Davis – the All-American who’s tall enough to eclipse the sun. But Wyatt didn’t see it that way. “I don’t even feel like the other guy,” he told the Scouting Combine. “I felt like family, I felt like a brother.”

His love for football was stated simply. “In third grade, I knew I loved football. Once I get to punch people and you get up and smile, it’s different. It’s like, OK, I love this sport “He has a great game and a great personality. When asked at the Combine what he would write about himself if he was a draft analyst, Wyatt replied: “If I was writing about myself, I would say, ‘This guy is amazing! He’ is the best guy i’ve ever met! if it was me i would definitely like i like this guy, he’s got a great personality, he can move. he’s definitely going to be a great player in the NFL, c is something I would say about myself.”
