OPSU All-American Evans Back for Senior Season
by Aggie Sports on 06/21/05
Goodwell, OK – Geared up and ready to get the job done – Oklahoma Panhandle State’s All-American defensive halfback, Jeborric Evans, should have another great season in 2005.
Soft spoken off the field and all business on it, Evans has had three outstanding years in an Aggie uniform. A three time All-Independent Football Alliance selection; a two time NCAA All-Region performer; an All-America selection (College Sports Report) last season, Evans is a truly outstanding football player.
A solid six feet and 200 pounds, in 2004 Evans became the Aggies’ 28th football All-American and may be one of the hardest hitters in all of college football.
The senior-to-be from Haynesville, Louisiana excels in the classroom (B average in Business Administration) and combines speed (4.2 seconds over 40 yards), strength, superb athleticism, and a very hard nose. Evans is also a big time kick returner.
A well-liked student athlete around the OPSU campus, Evans has a winning smile and perhaps, has never met a stranger.
In his All-American effort last season, in which the Aggies were 6-5, Evans made 56 tackles, and assisted in 23 others. In addition, he picked off three passes that he returned for a total of 57 yards and averaged 11 yards on each of his five punt returns . . . and ALL OF THIS WITH OPPONENTS TRYING TO STAY AWAY FROM HIM.
. . . . WATCH OUT FOR NUMBER 28!
