Union, 6-2, 240 pounds
Posey returns in the middle of the defense for the Yellowjackets this season after leading the team with 71 tackles and 13 for loss last year. Posey is a physically imposing figure at 6-foot-2 and 240 pounds and a sure tackler.
“Peyton is a big kid and definitely has one of the biggest roles on the team at middle linebacker,” Union coach Jordan Wren said. “Our thing is he’s going to have to play full speed and not take plays off. I like the fact that he has learned the defense really quick. He is the signal caller on defense and gets everybody lined up. He has to be the vocal guy and leader of the defense for us. He will also be a factor on offense when we put a tight end and H-back in the game at the same time.”
Posey already has offers from East Central and Copiah-Lincoln.
