Rising star Xavier Stephens plays out of Tulare Union High School. At 6 ft, 220 lbs. this athlete runs a 4.6 in the 40 yard dash and quickly became a standout player in his hometown as both a star running back and an outside linebacker. In his junior season with the Redskins, Stephens rushed for a thrilling 1,481 yards and scored 22 touchdowns. On the defensive end of the ball Stephens was equally as impressive registering 56 solo tackles.
He was a first team all-league selection as a running back and linebacker and has currently gained the interest of the Washington State University and the University of Oregon. As a junior, Stephens was one of the top players in the Central Section and we expect to see more of his talent explode on the field during his senior year beginning in 2011. We congratulate him for being selected to participate in the 2011 Cal State High school football Game.
