Get used to the name as Kalvin Souders is one of the top players in Oregon and an elite west coast WR for the 2020 class. The Sophomore standout will be one of the state’s best, covering the next two seasons, for a Central Catholic team that should be in the mix for a state title.
This past season Souders played opposite nationally ranked 4* WR Silas Starr (Offers: Oregon, Oregon St) , who is considered one of the top wide outs in America for his class. That said as Kalvin isn’t far off, projecting as an unquestioned D1 kid, and someone who could have 1/2 The Pac 12 and then some from an offer standpoint before he is done.
CC did well in 2017 finishing 9-3, before losing to eventual state champion Clackamas in the quarterfinals. The Rams will return one of the top young perimeters anywhere in the country with top ranked RB/DB’s Elijah Elliott and Miles Jackson, Slot WR Ethan Flynn, and what will be a 4 year starter at QB in Cade Knighton.
Souders caught 4 TDs this past season, splitting time with the likes of Starr and standout Senior’s Korbin Williams (1st Team All Mt Hood) and Vincenzo Logan. Moving forward defenses will not be able to contain or double team both WR’s. With Elliott and Jackson opening up the run game, both Souders and Starr could statistically dominate the state, and put up monster numbers.
Speaking on his choice to attend Central Kalvin says, “It ended up being the best decision I have ever made.” Souders does well in the classroom sporting a 3.4 GPA at the private school.
You will see much more of him on the camp circuit this off season, as part of the EForce/Team Oregon 7v7 group. EForce has finished (4th out of 120) and (11th out of 122 teams) two of the last three years at the national tournament in Las Vegas.
Speaking on Souders EForce Head Coach Alex Brink says, “Kalvin has spent the last 12 months refining his skills and it’s payed off big… Give a lot of credit to the coaches at Central as he has taken his game to a whole other level.” Expect to see Kalvin be a featured target on the 7v7 circuit with a host of additional D1 kids on the roster.
