Personal Life

Damon Wilson was already a well-known name in the Sunshine State, but he became a household name on the national scene with an unforgettable performance for Venice High in the 2021 Florida Class 8A championship game. Wilson had a monster pick-six in the 35-7 victory over Apopka. He was also in on eight tackles, had a half of a sack to tie the school record in a season with 14.5 and recorded two tackles for a loss to go along with his interception for a touchdown, pass breakup and quarterback hit, the latter three occurring on the same play. When he’s not making plays on the football field, Wilson is likely in the weight room or competing for the school’s powerlifting team. Wilson has a 370-pound bench press and he has hopes of topping the 400-pound mark by the time he graduates.

2011 Draft: Rnd 1 Pick 14
Damon Wilson reminds us of Robert Quinn due to his first-step quickness, play strength, length and ability to bend the corner at the edge. Both excel as pure edge rushers and use their athleticism and curvilinear movement skills to beat offensive tackles in pass rush situations. Quinn was a state champion wrestler. Wilson is exceptionally strong in the weight room.
