In addition, he has the speed and agility to make plays from sideline to sideline, and has the hands and leaping ability to take the ball away. Stefoin Francois is a tremendous all-around athlete and the Bowl is proud to have him join the U.S. Army All-American class of 2007.”

"Francois’ has an extraordinary high work ethic," said Southwest recruiting analyst Jeremy Patterson. "He is fast, aggressive and has brilliant cover skills. He's a very tenacious player who also supplies reliable, sometimes vicious run support."

“The first thing that jumps out at you is that he will be a four-year starter on a Class 5A team,” said East St. John head coach Larry Dauterieve. “The kid has been in the line of fire. He has got great range and he will knock the snot out of you. When you see him on film he is always around the ball. And did I mention that he will knock your head off.”
