Recruiting Interview: DT LaTerrion Green, Winnfield
by Jace LeJeune
There aren’t many defensive linemen that are big at 300 lbs and are quick but Winnfield DT LaTerrion Green is one of those players. LaTerrion Green can be one of the most improved players this season. Last year, Green broke out and was named Second Team All-State. Don’t be surprised if Green makes the First Team All-State list this year. He does a great job of holding his ground and shutting down holes for runningbacks to run through. He can also penetrate and create havoc at the nose guard position as well. Also, have I forgot to mention that he also can bench press almost 500 lbs and can squat over 700. LaTerrion Green hasn’t got a lot of D-I offers yet but our very own Lee Brecheen thinks that D-I offers will be coming his way this year. “Laterrion Green is a very good and underrated DT,” Brecheen said. “He is one of the best defensive tackles in North LA and can really move at 300 lbs. He can play nose guard technique and has the ability to play that position in the D-I level.” LaTerrion Green has already proved to be one of the best defensive tackles in North LA and is still getting better which is not good news for any offenses that are preparing for Winnfield in the fall. Read more about LaTerrion Green as he talks about the season, his favorite player, and his goals for the season!
