Recruiting Interview: DT Tre’Vas Chambers, Hahnville

by Jace LeJeune

Hahnville DT Tre’Vas Chambers has all the tools to become a great defensive lineman. He’s big enough to play on the defensive line at a D-1 school and at the same time, he has the quickness to chase down running backs in the backfield and to get around offensive lineman. He can stuff the run and rush the passer.Best of all, Tre’Vas is an unselfish football player that will help his team do little things in order for his team to win. Our recruiting guru Lee Brecheen thinks that Tre’Vas really caught on at the end of the regular season and can become even better this upcoming season. “Tre’Vas is a major sleeper,” Brecheen said. “He really came on late his junior year and if he has a great senior season, he can get some power five school offers. Tre’Vas plays hard and he also gained some weight which will help him as well.” If Tre’Vas lives up to his potential this season, he will not only get offers but he will get some offers from some major schools. Read more about Tre’Vas as he talks about the recruiting process, his influences, and his expectations for the season in today’s recruiting interview!

As a team, we need to be able to trust each other. Our quarterback needs to trust the offensive line to block for him.
