SES Elite 10: CJ Avery
Grenada's CJ Avery is a ballhawk. His nose for the ball and athletic ability to make big play after big play makes him an easy choice for the 2016 SES Elite 10.
Avery racked up 69 tackles with five interceptions last season for the Chargers on the way to a 10-3 season. The 2016 season is set to be the biggest one yet for Avery as he and the Chargers will enter as serious contenders for the 5A title.
At 6-1, 195-pounds, Avery uses his size and speed to cover a lot of space in the defensive secondary and even is able to bait quarterbacks into making throws they should not. His head knowledge of the game mixed with his physical ability make him one of the best defenders in the country.
*The next member of the 2016 SES Elite 10 will be announced Monday, June 20 at 10:00AM.
