Darrel Joseph Render (b. March 25, 1998) is a speedy, athletic wide receiver who got his feet wet as a redshirt freshman and now will compete for increased playing time in the rotation at wide receiver in 2018.

Render, who plans on majoring in journalism with the hope of becoming a sports commentator, used a redshirt season to develop and gain strength in 2016.

He saw action in three games in 2017, playing against Central Arkansas, Charlotte and UCLA, but did not record any statistics.

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.

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