Darrel Joseph Render (b. March 25, 1998) is a speedy, athletic wide receiver who plans on majoring in journalism with the hope of becoming a sports commentator.

He used a redshirt season to develop and gain strength in 2016, and now will compete for a spot in the playing rotation.

Render played for North Cobb High School under head coach Shane Queen. He recorded 52 catches for 520 yards and seven touchdowns as a senior in 2015 en route to all-county honors and multiple offensive player of the week accolades.

He helped to lead the Warriors to consecutive state playoff appearances as a junior and senior; played basketball, also leading that team to the state playoffs; and competed in the long jump.

Render projects well as a slot receiver and a kickoff or punt returner.
