Stratton Barwick of Siler City continues to make a name for himself on the gridiron.

The 8th grader at Silk Hope School was an key figure in leading the Harnett County Hurricanes to a 5th place finish last recently at the 2018 AAU Tackle Football National Championships down in Davenport, Florida, a suburb of Orlando.

Playing quarterback and middle linebacker for the Hurricanes, Barwick and his squad posted a 2-2 mark against some of the top competition from across the nation in the 14U event.

“Stratton had a strong tournament as did the Harnett County team,” said his father, E.J. Barwick. “The Hurricanes have played in about 8-10 tournaments this fall, and have been invited to a tournament in Gastonia this Saturday.”

Barwick, at 6’0, 224 pounds, certainly made his presence felt on the field, and has been invited to an elite AAU All-Star Showcase down in Myrtle Beach in June.

“He loves football,” said the elder Barwick of his son, who also doubles as a pitcher and slugger on the baseball diamond, and is a forward on the Silk Hope basketball team.

“That’s his passion and we wanted to find an outlet for him to play with the absence of a middle school program in Chatham County. It’s been a good experience for him.”
