Get to Know Your Orange Man: #29, DB John Sweetwood

The freshman walk-on DB from NJ has joined the Orange.

NCAA Football: Central Michigan at Syracuse Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

Name: John Sweetwood

Position: Defensive Back (Strong Safety)

Year: Freshman

Height: 6’0”

Weight: 170

Hometown: Montclair, N.J.

High School: Montclair Kimberly Academy

2017 Stats: At Monclair Kimberly, he had 50 tackles his senior year, with one pick, returned for a TD and a fumble recovery TD.

2018 Projections: As with the rest of the Syracuse Orange’s freshman walk-ons, I’m not really expecting much in the stat column. Let’s chalk this one up to a redshirt.

How Did He Get Here?: His parents dropped him off? Information is at a premium.

What Did Recruiting Sites Say?: No ratings on the major sites.

Money Quote: The closest thing he has to a quote is a Stephen Bailey tweet?

Twitter feed: Not sure if there is one.

Tweets of Wonder: See above.

What Movie Would Dino Recommend for Him?: Probably would go with 1950’s Cheaper by the Dozen, which is set in his hometown of Montclair, N.J. Though he could opt for the 2003 version starring Steve Martin.

Interesting Nugget O’Interest: Sweetwood also played baseball in high school. In 2018 he racked up a 0.386 batting average and a 0.583 OBP, including 4 HR and 20 RBI. Not too shabby at all.
