For this reason, I wanted to see Cameron play so I decided to drive across Lake Ponchatrain to see Shaw play John Curtis in a classic battle between two of the top powerhouses in Louisiana this year and I wasn't disappointed.
Vaughn plays middle linebacker for Shaw, but he could very easily slip over and play outside backer or even defensive end in college. Playing on a very talented defensive team, including Bluechip cornerback Sammy Joseph and hard-hitting safety Wayne St Ann, Vaughn still makes plays all over the football field.
Being 6-4, he is obviously taller than everyone else on the defensive team, this honor student uses his smarts to his big advantage. He has great reactions and reacts to miss-direction plays, draws plays, and screen passes. On one play that was designed to go one-way, but went the other, Cameron quickly saw the play and made the solo tackle for a one-yard loss.
He rarely makes mistakes and he seems to be anticipating what the offense is getting ready to do before they do it. Cameron made around 20 tackles in this very hard-nosed football game.
"Cameron has great intensity and leadership," said Shaw Head Coach Hank Tierney. "Cameron always makes big plays and we expect him to make them."
Vaughn carries a great 3.55 GPA in college prep courses and he will graduate 21st of 156 in his graduating class. He has already scored a 22 on his ACT test.
Cameron has narrowed his college choices to three teams, including Texas, LSU, and Notre Dame. He has scheduled an official visit to Texas on January 18.
