SSI Football: Siouxland Area Player Watch List!

Welcome to July! I am continuing to put some pre-season lists together regarding talent in the Siouxland area. Let's roll out some of my impact players regardless of class. I will continue to build the list out each week until camp starts! Camp begins on August 12, which is now (41) days until the official start of practice! Here are some more young cats who can play ball.


SIOUX CITY EAST Junior LB Jake Breyfogle 6-2 (205): Here is one of my favorite linebacker's from NW Iowa. Breyfogle burst on the scene last fall as a sophomore and racked up (52.5) total tackles with (36) solo and (5.5) TFL which led the team last fall. Breyfogle plays fast and runs very well sideline to sideline and looks for contact. Demonstrates great athleticism in the open field and takes very good angles to the ball carrier. Rising star and future college player that can carry a body weight of (220-225) is in line for a huge junior season on a very talented roster.

CHEROKEE Junior QB/ATH Jaxon Paulsrud 6-0 (190): Here is a kid that impacts a football game on both sides of the line of scrimmage for the Braves. Paulsrud rushed for (896) yards and (13) scores last fall as a sophomore and passed for (563) yards and (5) touchdowns. Paulsrud who played LB, was the team leader in tackles with (62.5). Look for Paulsrud to take on a greater leadership role this season and round into a solid college prospect.

OABCIG Sophomore WR/ATH Jaxx DeJean 6-4 (210): Here is the Prep RedZone Iowa #1 ranked 2027 prospect. DeJean's future appears as a WR/TE that uses his extreme athleticism to win one on one battles for the football on offense. Exhibits great body control from a basketball background as displayed with his (37) receptions for (500) yards and (7) scores as a freshman. Great route runner and a soft set of hands to haul in passes from various ball placements. Dominated in winter 7v7 football tournaments across the midwest and understands how to create separation when covered. Legitimate D-1 prospect with offers from UAB and Iowa and no doubt more offers to come.

SIOUX CITY EAST Junior QB/ATH Cal Jepsen 5-10 (170): Here is one of my favorite young QB's in the state of Iowa. What Jepsen lacks in size he more than makes up with his play-making ability and vision. Jepsen passed for (2,330) yards and (19) touchdowns in his first season of varsity football last fall while completing 58% of his passes. Jepsen's HUDL film is fun to watch as he is one of the better QB's to keep his eyes downfield when on the move and throws dimes to receivers who make route adjustments and burns teams with chunk plays to keep drives alive. Look for another solid season from Jepsen who has a talented supporting cast around him.
