Spotlight Student-Athlete: Lindell Stone

For Woodberry Forest’s Lindell Stone it’s all about precision. Stone is one of the most accurate quarterbacks in the state, running a sophisticated, technical offense that is giving opposing defenses all kinds of problems for the second year in a row.


Stone has thrown for 2,811 yards and 32 touchdowns this season, recently becoming the Scrimmage Play CVA career leader in passing yards and passing touchdowns. He’s also completing 64.9 percent of his passes while throwing just seven total interceptions. The Tigers are currently 7-1 on the strength of his efforts and have beaten both Collegiate and St. Christopher’s so far during the the Prep League slate. They’ll close with Fork Union later this week.


The Prep League has a long history of top-notch quarterbacks, and that lineage recently has been as impressive as it ever has been, with Russell Wilson, Jake McGee and Wilton Speight at Collegiate and Christian Hackenberg at Fork Union chief among them. Stone, who is headed to UVa next year, has entered that pantheon of great passers, making a major mark on both the league and the state in the process.
