Levingston powers offensive explosion

You could say that Narbonne HS and offensive lineman Dontae Levingston were at a disadvantage Thursday night, playing their first game of the season against an opponent that already had a big win under its belt. Levingston and his teammates weren't fazed, however, as Narbonne dominated by the tune of 41-0 against South East.

"It went pretty well," said offensive lineman Dontae Levingston of his team's 41-0 shutout win over South East (South Gate, Ca.). "It's a good start, but we could have been better.

"Our defense played really well, but our offense needs to clean it up a lot. The offensive line has to work harder. Our quarterback played good and our wide receivers gave him help. As a team, we need to play harder though.

"I can't wait until next week when play Long Beach Poly. All the talk is over and it's time to play."

What did Levingston think about the SMU/Texas Tech game and what's the latest on his recruitment, which is being handled by Mustangs offensive line coach Adrian Klemm?

"In the first half, SMU had some turnovers, but they picked it up after the half and put themselves in position to win.

"I talked to Coach Klemm after the game and I'm taking my official visit next month."

In addition to the Poly game, Levingston has a Week Four date with Serra and SMU commit Conner Preston circled on the calendar.

"People out here are saying that Serra is the best team, but that can't be proven until we play each other," he said.

Levingston and the Gauchos were without the services of junior TE Everton Thaxter vs. South East.

"He's a little banged-up and we don't want to take any chances with him getting re-injured," said Levingston.

South East entered the Narbonne game with a 1-0 record, having knocked off Eagle Rock, 35-0, the previous week.
