Youngstown Christian had a great season in 2011, finishing 10-2 with an Ohio playoff appearance. One of the top returning players is defensive end KaeVon Green, who was named the Division-VI defensive player of the year in-state.

Looking for one of the top sleeper prospects in the state of Ohio? Look no further than Youngstown Christian 2013 defensive end KaeVon Green.

Green, 6-foot-3, 210-pounds, was named the Ohio Division-VI defensive player of the year in 2011. As a junior, he recorded 14 sacks, had 30 solo tackles, and recovered two fumbles.

"My junior year was great, and I focused on technique on my burst off the ball," Green stated. "I would rate myself an eight on a scale of ten. My strength is my speed in getting to the quarterback. I'm working on being a leader for my team, trying to inspire other players to work harder."

Youngstown Christian plays in the small school division in Ohio, and Green helped lead his team to a 10-2 record last season.

Green is starting to see his recruitment start to take off, now that his film is being distributed.

"I'm hearing from Toledo and Kent State recently, and both have invited me to junior days," he explained. "I've also heard from Ohio State, Cincinnati, Illinois, Arkansas and a few others. Ohio State invited me to come to camp and they have my film. Arkansas has two coaches (Paul Haynes and Taver Johnson) that knew me from when they were in Ohio, and they are recruiting me."

"I know coming from a smaller high school that I will need to go to camps and perform for these coaches," he stated. "I will be going to as many college camps as I can so I can show these coaches than I can compete with the bigger school players."
