PROSPECT SPOTLIGHT | Wyatt Haverstick
6’2, 195 I DE/OLB I 2023 I CBC (Mo.) I @haverstickw05
A rising prospect in the 2023 class, CBC DE Wyatt Haverstick is putting together a terrific senior season and has emerged as one of the St. Louis’ area’s top passing rushers.
At 6’2, 195-pounds, Haverstick is quick off the ball and is most comfortable in pass rush situations and coming downhill to protect the D gap.. He has already recorded six sacks through the first six games of the season and has big goals for the remainder of the season.
“So far my season has been okay,” Haverstick said. “Our team is good, we’re a fast and physical team that are technically sound on both sides of the ball. We are only going to keep getting better. We want to repeat as state champs, and we know how hard that is, but we all want that second ring.”
Haverstick says he hopes to add several additional sacks to his total this season, and says playing on a team that is constantly building big leads early in games makes it possible.
“I’d like to rack up some more sacks as my personal goal this year is to break the CBC record for sacks,” he said. “As long as our offense keeps lighting people up and other teams have to play catch up, then I absolutely have a chance.”
Haverstick currently holds a Division I offer from Dayton, as well as offers from William Jewell and Culver-Stockton and says he has been talking to coaches at Butler, Dayton, Benedictine, Culver-Stockton, Missouri Southern, William Jewel, and Missouri Valley College in recent weeks. Haverstick has not yet been on any visits but plans to attend game day visits at Butler, Dayton, Missouri Valley College and Benedictine.
A fan of the Pittsburgh Steelers TJ Watt, Haverstick says he appreciates his ability to both rush the passer and stand up against the run.
“His ability to rush the passer and play the run are what I try to replicate the most from his game,” Haverstick says.
When he’s not on the football field, Haverstick says he enjoys going to the gym, talking with friends, and playing video games.
