Diamond In The Rough: Darius Green

LCCP- Darius Green

Darius Green is an offensive/defensive lineman and is in the class of 2022 at LCCP in Lake Charles, La. As a lineman, his quick reaction times are impressive and come in handy when making blocks and tackles. Darius is very quick and great at making essential last-minute blocks. Because he is so quick, when Darius is on defense, he is able to maneuver through opposing teams’ offensive lines easily and disrupt plays. However, Darius’ ability to maneuver isn’t the only way he can get to the ball. If Darius cannot outmaneuver his opponent, he overpowers them. Darius makes his strength known by plowing through opponents with ease, no matter what side of the ball he is on. Standing at 6’0 250lbs, Darrius is a force to reconned with not only on the field, but in the classroom too. With his 3.0 GPA it’s obvious that Darius always gives his best, no matter what he’s doing.
