Mattox a Super Sleeper

Midwest Regional Manager
Posted Mar 25, 2010

Fort Wayne (Ind.) Bishop Luers has a talented roster coming back, including a senior to be named Quyuan Mattox who should pick up much more interest over the summer.

It's hard to believe that after the junior season he put together, Quyuan Mattox is still being considered a sleeper.

The 5'11, 175-lb safety from Fort Wayne Bishop Luers made 1st team All-Conference last season, after recording 119 tackles, five interceptions and returning two punts for touchdowns.

He also had a great performance at the recent Michigan Showcase. The college interest has been somewhat slow to come in, but he does have a few big time schools looking at him.

"Illinois is sending me stuff, Iowa's really interested, they send me lots of letters, and I just took a visit Toledo this weekend."

There has been some talk of an offer, but none have come yet.

"Toledo said they like my highlight tape and said want me back down for summer camp."

Mattox does not have any more visits planned, but wants to get to Ball State and Indiana before the end of the spring.

One thing he is marketing to schools is his versatility, as he shows the ability to play corner, safety and return kicks.

"They're all recruiting me at safety, but I told them I can play both."

Mattox, who plans on studying physical therapy, has benefitted from the AWP Sports Performance facility in Fort Wayne, whose mission statement includes empowering athletes mentally, physically and spiritually by developing speed, character and strength.

"First of all, their character development has helped a lot," Mattox explained. "I'm developling as a leader and I also get my speed up and I'm gaining weight."
