Four-star linebacker Anthony Felder (6-3, 225, 4.6) from Seattle (Wash.) O’Dea lived up to his reputation as one of the west coast’s best football players and one of the nation’s best linebacker prospects.
Felder now owns the school record for tackles with approximately 350 tackles during his three-year varsity career at O’Dea.
What makes this achievement even more impressive is the fact that O’Dea is a school with a long tradition of sending its best players to the D-I level and to be the all-time tackle leader is notable indeed.
Felder also holds the school single game record for tackles with 22 and for tackles in a single season with 147. He accomplished the single season record tackling record during his junior season.
This past week Felder earned Metro Defensive Player of the Year for the second straight year. That’s not all.
Felder was also named first-team all-metro linebacker and first-team all-metro fullback for the second season in the row.
Don’t be surprised if you see Felder on the all-state team when they are released in the very near future.
LSU, Arizona State, Washington, Oregon, Oregon State, Penn State, Notre Dame, Colorado State, Ohio State, Duke, and Miami all have called Felder since September.
All of the above schools have offered in writing except Miami and the Canes have offered verbally.
Felder has set three visits to LSU on December 3rd, Notre Dame December 10th and Ohio State January 7th. His last two visits are undetermined but will more than likely come from Pac-10 schools.
In an earlier interview with Rivals.com O’Dea coach Monte Kohler had this to say about his talented linebacker.
“Anthony is big, strong and has a great nose for the football,” Kohler said. “He’s very physical and makes a ton of plays.”
