Last week, we had a special visitor who is a cousin of one of my students. His name is Drake Nevis and he plays football for the Indianapolis Colts.
According to Wikipedia, Drake M. Nevis (born May 8, 1989) is an American football defensive end for the Indianapolis Colts. He is considered one of the top defensive tackles for the 2011 NFL Draft. He played college football at LSU.
Nevis attended John Ehret High School in Marrero, Louisiana, where he recorded 72 tackles (17 for losses), 18 sacks, 25 quarterback hurries, eight forced fumbles and two recovered fumbles as a senior. He received Class 5A first-team all-state honors and a SuperPrep All-American selection. Regarded as a four-star recruit by Rivals.com, Nevis was listed as the No. 9 defensive tackle prospect in the class of 2007.
It was just a coincidence that one of the boys in my class had a Colts jacket on the day he visited. He was able to get a picture with Drake.
