Leesville High School (Leesville, LA) wide receiver Izaiah Farley has committed to play in the 2023 Gridiron Football All-American Bowl Game, which will be played at Memorial Stadium in Baton Rouge, Louisiana on Saturday, December 30th. Representing the Wampus Cats, Farley has been a big playmaker for Leesville throughout his career.
As a four year veteran, Farley is a two time 1st Team All-District selection and an All-Parish wide receiver. Playing at a program that has produced plenty of playmakers, Farley has set himself apart by being in the record book as the programs’s single season reception record holder this past season with 58 catches.
Accumulated through four years, he has had 53 carries for 490 yards as a running back, 89 catches for 1,202 yards as a receiver to combine for 1,822 all-purpose yards and 23 total touchdowns on offense. He also made some plays on defense whenever he is needed for that side of the football with 23 tackles and two interceptions.
Along the way, he has helped lead his team to two district championship and even a Quarterfinal appearance as a junior. Currently, the 5’11, 170 pound prospect has college interest from Warner University, Arkansas State, and the U.S. Naval Academy. He will get the chance to add some schools to the list at the upcoming Gridiron Football All-American Bowl Game.
“I was ecstatic to have even been considered for this opportunity. I am also excited that I get to play a game I hold so near and dear to me one more time in my senior year. The thought of playing against some of the top talents in Louisiana has always lingered in my mind because I wanted to know how I would stack up against those elite players. I finally have that opportunity and I am going to make the best of it. I am ready to put in the work and showcase my skills. Thank you Gridiron Football for allowing the opportunity to showcase my talents!”Leesville High School 2024 WR Izaiah Farley
Farley models his game after Seattle Seahawks wide receiver DK Metcalf.
“I model myself after DK Metcalf because he is a physical player and does not mind putting in the work. He is a dedicated and humble team player. He does not wait to be corrected. He self corrects as he strives to be a better version of himself.”Leesville High School 2024 WR Izaiah Farley
When Farley goes to college, he wants to pursue a kinesiology degree in order to become a physical therapist, but he also wants to pursue an engineering degree so he can someday work for NASA.
