Juan Wallace, a member of the varsity football team at H.D. Woodson High School, has been named the first District of Columbia State Athletic Association U.S. Army Impact Player of the Month for November.
Wallace was nominated for the award by the football coaches at H.D. Woodson, which finished the regular season 11-1.
"Juan is an excellent young man who leads by example. He's [the] type of young man that any parent would want as their son," H.D. Woodson head varsity football coach Gregory Fuller said. "He does it on the field, he does it in the classroom, and that's all we ask of them -- be a good young man first, student second and athlete third. He has definitely displayed that throughout his entire career here."
An inside linebacker, Wallace has registered 106 total tackles, 10 tackles for a loss and six sacks this fall for the Warriors. He's played a big part in H.D. Woodson having one of the most menacing defenses in Washington, D.C. The unit as a whole has allowed a little less than 12 points per game this year, and has recorded shutouts in three of its past five regular-season games.
To Wallace, winning the award was a result of having a great support group in all aspects of his life.
"I have to thank everybody. I have to thank my parents, I have to thank my teammates and I have to thank Coach Fuller for helping me become the player I am today," Wallace said. "I wouldn't have become the person I am today without them."
