One of the best cover corners in southern California this season has been Antoine Cason (6-1, 180, 4.5) from Los Alamitos, Calif. Cason and his Los Alamitos teammates will be hooking up with the always tough Los Angeles (Calif.) Loyola in the Southern Section Division I semi-final game this Saturday at the Home Depot Center in Carson.
One thing that happens when you’re a blanket in coverage is the opposition doesn’t throw in your area and that of course has happened to Cason in 2003.
Even though opponents have avoided Cason this season, he still has picked off three passes.
Cason is a solid defender against the run as he has racked up 33 tackles from his corner spot and has an eye for the football as he has recovered two fumbles in 2003.
Cason has offers from Oregon State, Arizona, Colorado and Boise State. The current leader is Oregon State.
“Oregon State has been very sincere in the way they have recruited me,” Cason said. “They have been with me since the beginning of my recruitment and I like the coaching staff.”
“I favor Oregon State because of those reasons.”
Running backs coach Lee Hull is recruiting Cason for the Beavers.
