Jack-of-all-Trades in High School

Addison attended Tuscarora High School in Maryland. While playing for the Titans, Addison was a defensive back, receiver, and option quarterback. During his senior year, he caught 25 passes for 544 yards and eight touchdowns.

Addison was also a well-regarded hoops phenom but quit the sport after his sophomore year to focus on football. He shifted gears to participate in track and became a talented sprinter and long and high jumper.

By the spring of his final prep year, Addison was ranked in the top 10 in the country as a football recruit and a top-10 prospect in the state of Maryland.
