Los Angeles (Calif.) Salesian Kyahva Tezino (6-1,205) came off the field all smiles on Friday after the Mustangs defeated San Luis Obispo (Calif.) Mission Prep 34-0.
The win marked the Mustangs twelfth win in a row, and earned them the schools first ever CIFSS Championship.
Tezino, a Scout 300 prospect for 2015, got the ball rolling with a touchdown run in the first quarter, followed by several nice runs through out the remainder of the game.
"Man it feels exciting, feels like you're on top of the world right now," said Tezino. "Our Coach told us keep on grinding, don't give up, never give up so that's what we put in our heads and we got here and won."
Although the junior athlete plays both sides of the ball, his strength as a linebacker is where he sees himself playing in college.
As a junior Tezino already holds over a dozen offers, but insisted on staying focused on his team and his dream for a CIF-SS championship.
"My recruiting process has been going pretty good so far, I wasn't really worries about it because I had big expectations about getting here, and here we are. Now that we've accomplished our goal as a team I can start worrying about recruiting," said Tezino.
With another season under his belt, Tezino feels like he has a lot more to offer schools now.
"I've improved on everything, my skills, running the ball, I mean just everything. I have a better understanding of the game and have become a better athlete of the game overall."
Although Tezino is hoping for more, already has a list of Pac-12 schools in the running, among others.
"I don't have a frontrunner right now, but the schools that are looking at me hardest right now are Cal, UCLA, USC, Washington, and Missouri." said Tezino.
Now that the season is over, Tezino plans to start pursuing his options and setting up visits for the offseason.
