Canyon Del Oro sophomore Sa’Kylee Woodard put in work at the American Youth Mega Spring Showcase on Friday. The showcase took place at Bell Bank Park in Mesa and while it wasn’t right in Canyon Del Oro’s backyard, Sa’Kylee felt right at home.
“I look at these things that we do like it’s a practice,” Woodard said. “It’s like a spring ball practice. I’m out here with my guys having fun.”
The sophomore offensive and defensive lineman was happy to have the opportunity to put his skills on display for college coaches from across the country. Sa’Kylee believes that a lot of coaches hung around to watch him in action and says Colorado State, Notre Dame, ASU, and many others have been showing interest over the last few months.
Sa’Kylee has enjoyed bonding with his teammates over the off-season and has equally enjoyed breaking school records. He broke the school’s sophomore squat record that was previously held by current New York Giants linebacker, Blake Martinez.

Woodard mastered the “humble brag” saying he reached out to Martinez on a bunch of different social media platforms to let him know he set the new sophomore record at Canyon Del Oro.
Sa’Kylee has been feeling really good about his recruitment thus far and has a lot of confidence about his future prospects. As a rising junior Woodard has taken on a bigger leadership role. He says that it’s important for him to noticeably work hard in order to motivate his teammates to work hard as well.
