The 5-foot-9, 170-pounder has been timed as fast as a 4.4 seconds in the 40-yard dash and displayed the ability to catch the ball well out of the backfield during the camp.
Warthen and his Boyd Anderson backfield mate, Chris Anderson, were the two top running backs there. Warthen talked about his showing and playing with Anderson.
"I think I did pretty well," he said. "We have that one-two punch and have that chemistry so far."
Warthen has several goals for next season, all of which are team-related.
"My goal is to win state," he said. "My senior year, I want to win it all and go undefeated."
