Fox 40 Prospect Challenge (West Coast): “Choose never to give up” says REC Lebedow

Football can be a stepping stone for greater things. Athlete Denver Lebedow knows this well and is using the FPC for just that. When we asked what his specific goals were for the FPC, he replied, “To become more visible to college teams as that is my main goal to play at that level and beyond and get my degree.”

While playing the receiver position for most of his seven year career, Lebedow also plays at safety and quarterback which he says has made him a more versatile and “valuable” player. In grade 8, he won Male Athlete of the Year and was also named U16 Team BC MVP in the Red River tournament.

He goes on to say that after playing at a competitive level for many years, he pushes himself to be “outstanding” in every way, not just on the field. “What I know about the game is that I am a leader. It had made me able to take on coaching a younger team that I played for and have been coaching them for 3 years,” he says. “2015 we won the community football championship,” he adds. 

Aside from giving back to the younger players coming up through the ranks, Lebedow continues to work on his own athletic and football ability. He works with a personal trainer and also with his school BFS class. In addition, he plays and trains with the Game Ready 7 on 7 elite team as well as running track.

Using Payton Manning as an internal motivator, he says,”he is a outstanding role model and I believe he is an older version on myself.” 

It is clear that football is Lebedow’s “true passion” and that he is ready to take his game to the next level.
