Classroom

Woolfolk boasts a terrific 3.92 GPA at Virginia State. He is on course to graduate next May.

He continues to strive academically as a leader for both the Trojan football and baseball teams.

Character

Ever since Woolfolk arrived on campus in 2019, he has lived up to his favorite quote by Zlatan Ibrahimovic: “I can like a king, left like a legend.”

He continues to prove why he is a highly respected player for the Trojans, game-by-game and practice-by-practice.

Community

In addition to being a member of the Virginia State football and baseball teams, Woolfolk is a representative for the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee. He looks to enhance the community and youth in the surrounding areas.

In recent time, Woolfolk has helped the students at Vernon Johns Middle School, which Virginia State Athletics adopted this season.

Before the pandemic, he welcomed the local youth back to school and donated time and food to the local food drives. Woolfolk also contributed to the Trojans’ largest sock donation (over 3,800 socks) in department history.

Competition

Leaving a mark as a dual sport scholar-athlete, Woolfolk has frequently impressed for the Trojans.

During the 2021 football season, he has kicked 7/7 FG and 20/24 PAT. Woolfolk also has 22 kick-offs for 1336 yards with an average of 60.7 yards and four touchbacks.

Last Spring, Woolfolk struck out 12 batters during the spring baseball season.
