Carson (Calif.) athlete Kevin Lane (5-10, 185), made a big impression in the Colts' nationally televised game with Mater Dei, including a 43-yard interception return.
Now Lane is hoping that his strong start will open more eyes with college coaches.
"Kevin is starting to make the transition from running back to safety with big success and colleges are also starting to notice this transition," said his father, Kevin. "Kevin has had 17 tackles, three deflected passes, one force fumble and two interceptions with one interception that had a 43 yard return against Mater Dei, within the first two games."
It's that big start that has gotten some Pac-10 schools to take a closer look at Lane.
"Arizona, Oregon State and Cal are all starting to notice Kevin as a potential candidate for a student-athlete prospect as a defensive back," said Mr. Lane. "Arizona and Cal have indicated that they will be monitoring Kevin's performance during the Redlands game (on Friday)."
Last weekend, Carson took on Serra, and Lane was matched up against elite 2010 receiver Robert Woods, and more than held his own.
During the game against Serra, Lane had six tackles, four assisted tackles and two deflected passes, holding Woods to a pair of catches for 10 yards.
This weekend, Carson meets Redlands in another intersectional game.
