SES Mr. Elite Candidate Spotlight: Cam Akers

The Candidate:

Cam Akers


Clinton High School

Akers has been a staple in the conversation of the nation’s top talent now for quite some time. His accomplishments on the field have been the stuff of legend. He has led his Arrows to a one-loss season and is now poised to make a run at the 6A crown beginning Friday night.

What makes him ELITE?

The appropriate question would actually be, ‘what is NOT elite about Akers?’. The answer would be short and sweet…NOTHING. Akers possesses a unique ability to take over a football game. When the lights are at their brightest, Akers transforms from phenomenal athlete into superhuman athlete. He becomes unstoppable. He has been labeled a once in a generation type of player and he has done nothing to make that seem farfetched.

Akers has also carried himself in an ELITE way. Even as one of the most sought after high school recruits in the country, Akers has been clear that his focus is on his team and helping them bring home the golden ball in December. He has always made himself available to speak with SES Mississippi and has carried himself in a very mature way.
