The Bakersfield, Calif., program has more wins than any other program in California with 667 W's to their credit. The storied program finished with a 12-2 record and a central section Division I CIF championship in 2005.
One of the main reasons was the fine play of two-way offensive tackle/defensive tackle, Justin Cheadle (6-5, 250, 5.0). The talented Cheadle already has two offers on the table.
Though Cheadle is outstanding on both sides of the ball, according to Bakersfield head coach Paul Golla, he projects as an offensive tackle.
Cheadle has the frame that D-I schools love in their prospects. He's going to be able to add weight without losing quickness.
Another thing that D-I schools like about Cheadle is his overall athleticism.
Not only is Cheadle a first-team all-area and all-league selection in football, but he earned the same honors for his basketball talents in 2005.
Cheadle also was a second-team all-state selection for his football skills as a junior.
The last time he was tested for his bench press, Cheadle had a 315-pound lift and that was as a sophomore. During the same period, his full squat was 380-pounds and his vertical was 26-inches.
"Justin has an incredible work ethic," Golla said. "He doesn't accept anything but his best, on and off the field."
"I can't say how much of a pleasure it is to coach Justin," Golla said. "His attitude is that great."
"Justin shows up early and leaves late," Golla said. "He helps others on the team and you never have to worry about him doing what he needs to do. It is like having another coach on the team."
"As a football player, Justin has great feet and plays with tenacity," Golla said. "He's very physical and very aggressive."
"Justin has received stuff from every school in the Pac-10," Golla said. "He is going to be a major recruit."
According to Golla, Cheadle already has two offers on the table from Fresno State and Arizona.
