The state of Washington is known for producing great quarterbacks and great linemen. This year is no different. Perhaps the best offensive lineman in the Evergreen State this season is Aaron Klovas (6-6, 300, 5.29) from Graham (Wash.) Bethel.
Klovas isn’t resting on his laurels as he is vigorously working out to improve his overall game. He has that competitive fire that drives him to excellence.
Klovas is now benching 305 pounds and squats 425.

One of the most impressive things about Klovas is the fact that he has only been playing the game of football since his freshman year in high school.
This virtual neophyte to the game of football has a very high ceiling. He has all the natural ability that D-I schools look for in an offensive line prospect.
Klovas has the work ethic and desire to reach his immense potential. That is one of the reasons that every school in the Pac10 except USC has offered the talented behemoth from the state of Washington.
Nebraska, Michigan State, Northwestern and Wyoming have also thrown their hat into the ring for the services of Klovas.
Klovas isn’t even close to making his decision and at this point he hasn’t really narrowed down his schools to five possible visits.
“I will try to narrow down my schools in late August or early September,” Klovas said. “I don’t think I will make a decision on a school until I take all five visits.”
“I have a preference for the Pac10 because I like the style of offenses the league plays,” Klovas said. “But when it comes right down to it, I’m going to the school that I feel most comfortable at.”
“I like Washington but I like all western teams,” Klovas said. “The main thing I’m looking at is the coaching situation, especially my position coach and the strength coach. I’m going to be spending most of my time with them so I want to like them.”
“I’m going to choose the school that I feel is going to best help me reach both my academic and athletic goals.”
