Defensive end Chris Pousson (6-4, 240, 4.9) from San Diego (Calif.) Saint Augustine had an important hand in helping St. Aug win their second straight San Diego Section CIF title in 2006.
Pousson earned first-team all-league honors after accounting for 61 tackles, nine quarterback hurries, seven sacks, four blocked passes, and two fumbles caused.
Though Pousson is mainly being recruited as a defensive end, he is also an outstanding long snapper and since he is adding tight end to his resume this fall some schools are waiting to see how he performs as an offensive player.
Stanford, Oregon, Washington State, Hawai'i, and Penn are schools that are showing Pousson a lot of recruiting attention.
In the weight room, Pousson currently benches 275, squats 390, cleans 260 and recently recorded a 31.5 vertical at the USC Big Man camp last month.
A good all-around athlete, Pousson also plays baseball. He plays first and third base.
On the gridiron, Pousson has outstanding leadership qualities and plays the game of football with passion. He will be counted on by St. Aug for both qualities this fall as they defend their San Diego Section CIF Championship.
Pousson has been busy on the camp circuit getting better at the craft of football.
"I went to the UCLA, USC and Stanford camps," Pousson said. "I learned a lot from the college coaches on several aspects of the game that you don't learn from high school coaches.:
What is Pousson looking for in a college?
Í want to go to a school where I'll play, maybe not in the first year, but sometime down the road," Pousson said. "Location isn't an issue for me. I don't care if I play close to home.
"San Diego is nice, but I don't care if I go up north or east. I will go wherever football will take me.
"I'm trying to keep my options open, but I don't want to be caught making a decision at the last minute."
