At 6'4'', 226 pounds, Mason Yost already looks the part of a major conference tight end.

Bolles tight end Mason Yost is part of high school football royalty as his grandfather, Corky Rogers, has the most wins and state championships in Florida football history, is a multi-platform Hall of Famer and was named the leader of the FHSAA All-Century Team in 2007. Mason, a heralded prospect for the class of 2018, is creating his own legacy.

At 6'4'', 226 pounds, Yost already looks the part of a major conference tight end. The rising senior is tall, long and lean and has ideal athleticism for a player at his position. His talents as a pass-catcher were showcased, with multiple quarterbacks, in workouts at the Explosive Southern Pigskin Football Camp in Pooler, Georgia. Yost was a frequently-targeted option and found success in coverage with catches to-the-body and above-the-head.

Given his ideal frame, Yost can be effective as both a receiver and as a blocker at the line of scrimmage; he has the quickness to beat defenders one-on-one and the strength to win battles in the trenches. 

Playing for his grandfather in his final season as head coach a year ago, Yost and the Bulldogs went 12-1.

In addition to football, track, weightlifting and wrestling have been sports where Yost has excelled.

Yost, a prospect with a lot of momentum on the recruiting trail, has a number of Division I offers, including Army West Point.
