Athlete of the Week: Zane Levings
COTTAGE GROVE, Ore. - Zane Levings is one of only six seniors on the Cottage Grove football 40-man roster, his role is more than just to lead the underclassmen by example, it’s to win ballgames.
“He’s a two-way all-league player. 3-year starter for us,” Lions Head Coach Gary Roberts said. “Great student in the classroom…It was pretty easy for me when asked about who would represent someone as an Athlete of the Week that Zane instantly came to mind.”
As an all-league player at both linebacker and running back for the Lions, Levings doesn’t see the sideline much.
But as for which position he feels he’s better suited, “I, personally, enjoy the running back position. Helping the offense as much as I can,” Levings said. “I enjoy hitting other people while running the ball.”
Levings and the Lions are currently in a bye week.
The first round of the 4A OSAA football playoffs begin Fri. Nov. 4.
