High School: Rampart
It is not often that you hear a player say that he is interested in a career in Ultimate Fighting, but that is just the kind of personality you get with DeSanto.
"I think I could do something like that. One of the coaches at Rampart did it and I think it is something I can do."
He is also interested in Law Enforcement.
"I would like to be an ATF (Alcohol Tobacco Firearm) Agent. I think it would put me in a position to help out kids at a young age to stay away from certain dangers."
Back on the football field Jason says he does many things well.
"I have good quickness and a low center of gravity. I am hard to bring down. I also think I have good power and breakaway speed."
"He could be a scat-back or H-back at the next level in my opinion," says Rampart Head Coach Dan Olson. "I think he could also fit into some programs as a tailback. He missed the first two games last year and still rushed for over 1,500 yards. Jason is just a hard working, great kid."
DeSanto is not thinking too much about what schools he is interested in, but does know what he will look for in a school when it is time to do so.
"When the scholarships come in I will be looking for the place that has the best program for running backs. I am not too interested in where I am headed at this point. I am more interested in what I need to do to get there. Nobody will work harder than me."
"Even though Colorado has all that stuff going on right now people I know still think it is one of the best programs out there. I like what they did with Bobby Purify. He has a nice stride and is pretty incredible. I figure if their coaches can coach him up then they can coach me up. Florida is another school I like. They had a running back there last year I saw that was the most amazing back I have ever seen. Colorado State also usually has some pretty good backs so I like them."
The main thing Jason wants to work on is his speed. He ran an 11.6 100 meter as a freshman and runs a 4.6 40 right now. He says it is not a goal of his to get to a 4.4, it is mandatory.
"That is what I will get my speed to, no question."
He plans on attending the CU and CSU summer camps.
DeSanto carries a 3.7 core GPA and will take his ACT in April.
