Arizona FL football’s top player, Stanley Berryhill III, has arguably announced that he will be entering the 2022 NFL Draft. Berryhill was walking the Wildcats after he didn’t receive the scholarship offers he wanted to get him out of high school. However, he got a scholarship after proving himself.
Berryhill took to Twitter to show his appreciation to his teammates and staff. Tweet mentionedHaving spent the past four and a half years at the University of Arizona, playing in my hometown, surrounded by my family, friends and true fans, I can only say thank you. The University of Arizona and the great city of Tucson have supported me since the first day I stepped onto the field. Thank you coach Rich Rodriguez for believing in me and my talents as an athlete and giving me the opportunity to play at a great university. Thank you coach Sumlin for rewarding me with a scholarship. Without you I wouldn’t be where I am today…
“The bonds I built during my time here will never be broken. Coach Fish and coach (Kevin) Cummings gave me the knowledge and confidence I needed to be more than a college football player. You both gave me the missing pieces I needed to take this next step in my football career. I trusted me as a leader and a major contributor to the team.For that I am forever grateful.
“To my brothers on this team, I wish you luck and success. Walking the field with you every week has been an honor and a blessing. … During our ups and downs, we fought together and kept our heads high with Wildcat pride. Thank you all for standing with me.
“Today I say goodbye to being an active Wildcat on the football field, but Wildcat, I will be forever. … Tucson, Arizona will always be home.”
In Berryhill’s fifth year, he drove the Wildcats 865 yards out of melee and became the sixth Arizona Wildcat to have 80 or more catches in a single season. Berryhill finished second in the Pac-12 with his impressive performance this season.
Next up for Berryhill would be the East-West Shrine Bowl if he decides to play. This will be held on February 3 in Las Vegas.
