Standing 6'2 280 pounds Levor already has good size and the young man has put in work in the weight room as well. With maximums of 340 on the bench press, 485 on the squat, and running 5.1 seconds in the 40 yard dash it's easy to see why schools have been actively recruiting him.
Gaffney has been hard at work during the offseason and Levor continues to press on to make improvements along with his teammates. "I'm working on improving my speed this summer." While he will work to get faster an area where Levor excels is sheer toughness on the field. Teams try to run away from the talented big man as he helps anchor the Indians defensive line.
We couldn't conduct the interview without asking Levor his thoughts on Gaffney's chances to win it all again next season for a three-peat. He emphatically responded, "Man yes, we want to go 15-0 again." Last year the Indians had stars like SC's Mr. Football in QB Malcolm Long and standout WR Tyson Petty. Ross says this year's team will try to go 15-0 again but that they did lose a lot of good seniors from last year's team like Long and Petty.
Ross didn't initially start out at Gaffney but down the road at Blacksburg High. It was there that he faced his toughest opponent in his career. "Toughest guy I ever had to play against was 2 years ago when I was at Blacksburg. He played for Landrum." As for the toughest team he's faced Ross said that Byrnes High posed the toughest challenge for him during his career.
Levor's stock should continue to rise and SCPrepNation.com will keep you updated on his recruitment as we quickly approach next season.
