LB Travers Getting More Attention

B.J. Travers of Westlake High School is getting attention from three of the nation's top programs.

Linebacker B.J. Travers of Westlake is definitely a player to watch this year. He is strong, athletic and can hit. He projects to be a top 40 player in the state, and did we mention he was strong?

"B.J. bench pressed 450," said Westlake head coach Ron Johnson. "That's the best ever in this area.

"He will be going to Kenton for a state powerlifting meet next weekend."

Travers has gained the attention of three of the very best programs in the country.

"USC and Oklahoma are now in contact as well as Ohio State," the coach said. "We will be down to the Nike Combine at Ohio State."

B.J.'s bench isn't the only impressive stat he possesses. 

"Recently, he had a vertical of 32 1/2 inches and a 9'1'' standing broad jump," said Coach Johnson. "He slipped and still ran a 4.8 in the 40, and his shuttle was 4.51."
