One of the hardest working players you will find is Oklahoma Christian School junior Mr. Do it all Jaxon Canard. A great work ethic and a player that has a very high football IQ, Jaxon is a counted on two way playmaker for the Saints offensive and defensive units.
“I absolutely love the game, so when you love something I think you’re automatically going to put more effort into it. Last season I played pretty much only defense because there was a senior running back Mason Arnold ahead of me and I really got to learn a lot about the safety position.” Said Canard.
Six Star Football – Most influential person
Jaxon – I can absolutely credit almost all of my success last year to coach Brooks Stephenson, he was the db’s coach and we have a close relationship where I got to soak up everything he taught me. He is also my rb’s coach and he teaches me so much. This season I haven’t played as much defense because the coaches felt like the offense was the strength of our team and wanted to rest me on defense.
Six Star Footabll-Both sides of the ball, Canard is a difference maker
Jaxon – I enjoy playing both sides but I wish I could’ve played more on defense because I think I like it more but I also feel like I would be better suited for defense at the next level.
Six Star football – What schools are looking at you
Jaxon – I have kind of started late on the whole recruiting thing but I started that whole process last summer and really the only school that has showed some good interest in me so far is OBU, no offers.
