Corey Laufasa Profile

Laufasa, who earned First Team All-League honors at Evergreen High School (Seattle, Wash.) felt Army had the right mix of football and academics, "When I talked it over with my parents we were trying to look for a place that had really good football and but also has really good education."

Laufasa, who will be a direct admission to the academy, had 128 total tackles, 80 solo tackles, 2 forced fumbles, fumble recovery, 1.5 sacks, 1 interception. He helped lead Evergreen to an 8-2 finish and a playoff appearance.

The future Cadet, who stated that "Grades are number one," plans to study medicine and someday be either a doctor or sports trainer. He chose Army over heavy interest from Harvard and Hawaii.

Although Laufasa has not visited the academy he plans to schedule a visit soon. Army coaches Saga Tuitele and Tim Walsh recruited him.

Laufasa is rated the No. 93 prospect in the Northwest by Scout.com.
