Eafon Wants to be a Buff

Levess Eafon has favored Colorado since the beginning of the recruiting cycle. The corner is the younger brother of former Arizona fullback, Kelvin Eafon. He is claiming a CU offer, along with two others. Eafon had a rushing touchdown last night to lift the Salpointe Lancers to a victory over Phoenix St. Mary's in the first round of the state playoffs.

As a junior, Levess Eafon had 125 carries for 950 yards and 11 touchdowns. On defense, he had 73 tackles and five interceptions. "As a running back I'm good a shaking defenders and getting to the outside," he said. "When I get going I feel like nobody can stop me. As a corner, I just love to jam receivers. I want to play against the #1 opposing receiver all the time, get into his face and get him frustrated. I love to just win games, too. And I love zone defense especially cover three and cover one.

"I need to work on my stamina and keeping my grades up. Other than that I think my game will fall into place naturally."

Eafon claims written offers from Colorado, Northern Colorado and Arizona. "I also have verbal offers from San Diego State, Nevada, UTEP, and North Dakota State."

Colorado is still the favorite. "Colorado is real cool. I want to go there. It is a nice school. I speak with Coach Hagan every week. That is my dude right there. He is real cool and always reminds me to keep thinking about the Buffs. I have not made a decision, yet, because I am being patient and want to make sure that I want to be a certain place. I will start focusing more on recruiting after the season.

"My brother is also telling me to wait until after the season to start scheduling my trips and getting serious about my recruitment. Right now I am just focused on that playoff ring.

"I want to go somewhere that I feel comfortable and do my thing on special teams and as a corner."

Eafon guesses he has around 100 tackles on the year to go along with 10 sacks, three forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries (one for a 54 yard touchdown). Of his plethora of sacks for a corner he says, "I love coming on the corner blitz. They let me decided when to do it and I guess I have made some good decisions."

Salpointe will take on Bropy Prep in the second round of the playoffs, next Saturday.
