This is Kavon Thibodeaux.
Kavon is the #1 overall prospect in the 2019 class entering college football. This 6 foot 5 235 pound defensive end is expected to choose between elite schools like, Alabama, USC, Florida State, Oregon and LSU this fall to play football. He racked up 20 sacks and 99 tackles in 2017, including 70 solos and 28 tackles for loss to guide his team to a CIF Southern Section Division 2 crown. He’s from Thousand Oaks, California. Given Thibodeaux’s speed, power and sheer athleticism, some sayhe’s a once-in-a-millennium talent.
Kayvon couldn’t help that he to 6’2″ by age 13. He couldn’t help that he charged through kids in his Pop Warner half his age. An ambulance was called when one boy couldn’t get back up.
What makes Kavon so unique is not only his ability on the field but off the field. He transferred to Oaks Christian from Dorsey High his sophomore year for better academic opportunities. But the posh school was unlike anything he had experienced. But the reason he did go was really for the better academic opportunity:
Kavon has a 3.8 GPA, is known as a bookworm who wants to be a lawyer after the NFL, and his brain moves as quickly as he does on the field. He loves discussing politics. And he’s known as a mama’s boy, and is an esteem member of the school’s chess club.
He rarely watches the NFL or college football. He couldn’t tell you what channel ESPN is. He jokes he might do the worm on draft day should Commissioner Roger Goodell call his name. He dreams of transforming the South Central neighborhood he grew up in and now lives apart from.
