Revell, Mason choose preferred walk-on status
Battlefield quarterback Bo Revell, an honorable mention All-Met selection this fall, has decided to attend William & Mary this fall as a preferred walk-on.
His teammate, Blaine Mason, who was an all-Cedar Run District selection as a wide receiver and safety, will do the same at Virginia Tech.
Revell completed 111 of his 199 passes this fall for 1,629 yards and 14 touchdowns while leading the Bobcats (12-1) to their first Northwest Region Division 6 title and a Virginia AAA state semifinal appearance. He also had seven rushing touchdowns.
Mason caught 27 passes for 544 yards and five touchdowns.
At 6-foot-6, Revell is a traditional, drop-back passer and found that most schools were either looking at him as a tight end or wanted a spread-style quarterback. But William & Mary, which finished 11-3 this past fall, was one of the few Division I programs to offer Revell at shot at playing quarterback.
“The hard part with Bo was the type of offenses people are running now. Some schools have the spread-type quarterbacks, but they also want a pro-style [quarterback] just in case,” Battlefield Coach Mark Cox said.
“If it was me, it’s good to have both kinds. Let’s say somebody gets hurt, it’s nice to be able to have another quarterback and go to something else.”
Revell was the Prince William Extra’s offensive player of the year, while Mason was a first team All-Extra selection.
Both Revell and Mason played basketball this winter, helping the Bobcats (12-12) win the Cedar Run's regular-season title. Revell averaged 4.4 points per game, Mason 8.3.
