Wesley Steiner is a man among boys.

The 6-foot, 220-pound senior at Houston County High School (Warner Robins, Georgia) owns the distinction of being the most athletic player in all of high school football.

But Steiner's no one-trick pony.

At The Opening Finals in July, he was crowned the US Air Force Special Ops Combine Challenge rating champion with an overall score of 148.17. His results included:

  • 4.51 40-Yard Dash
  • 40.2-Inch Vertical Jump
  • 4.00 Short Shuttle
  • 42.5-Foot Powerball Throw

Those numbers put him firmly among the most athletic players to ever compete at The Opening, rivaling the scores of current NFL stars like Derrick Henry, Landon Collins and Jalen Ramsey. Steiner's overall rating was more than eight points higher than any other athlete at this year's Opening Finals.

As if he wasn't athletic enough, Steiner's also a two-time Georgia 6A state champion in the discus with a PR of 176'5". He also went out for Houston County's wrestling team for the first time last season, where he more than held his own in the 220-pound weight class.

Currently the fifth-ranked inside linebacker in the country by 247 Sports, Steiner also takes snaps at running back. Here's what this ball of athletic dynamite looks like in action:

Better yet, Steiner seems like a genuinely awesome kid.

"Wesley is an amazing athlete! He participates and excels in several sports at our school," Houston County High School Principal Doug Rizer told WGXA.

"More importantly than being an exceptional athlete, Wesley is a 4.0 AP honor roll student. He has an infectious smile and is loved by all of his HOCO teachers. We expect great things from him this year."

Steiner is currently committed to Auburn University.
