c.lezzerIn 2012, Christian Lezzer did it all for Clearfield on both sides of the ball. Christian seemed to be everywhere on the field.

On offense he completed 55 of 102 passes for 1,445 yards and 20 touchdowns. He rushed for 1,444 yards on 211 carries (6.84 yards per carry) and 21 touchdowns.

On defense he was a beast at linebacker. He had 52 total tackles, 12.5 sacks and four fumble recoveries.

The 6-foot-1, 217-pound linebacker verbally committed to Boston College early this month. “First off it is the academics. They have the sixth best business school in the country,” said Lezzer.  “They have a new coaching staff and I started developing a bond with some of the other commits.”

At Boston college he will be playing weak-side linebacker.

According to Rivals he chose Boston College over offers from Arizona, Bucknell, Kent State, Temple and Towson. He also had interest in Penn State, Pittsburgh, Rutgers and West Virginia. “My Uncle Chad has really helped me through the recruiting process,” said Lezzer. “Both my Uncles played at Penn State.”

Off the field, Lezzer carries an impressive 3.5 GPA. “My favorite class is History.”

He helped his team to a 11-1 record in 2012. “We have a lot coming back this season. Our goal is get into the state playoffs and make a run.”
