Over the course of the past two seasons Cincinnati (Ohio) Western Hills running back Kayvon Britten has proven to be one of the more dynamic offensive players in Southwest Ohio.

At 5-foot-7, 180-pounds, Britten uses his track background on the football field to make big plays running the ball.

So far only one program has given Britten a scholarship offer.

“I’ve already got an offer from Arkansas Pine Bluff,” said Britten. “I know the school is great and I look forward to checking them out more.”

Because of track Britten was unable to take part in Wednesday’s Cincinnati Public Schools college combines. What was it like for Britten to watch his teammates and competition workout in front of so many college coaches?

“It’s great to see all this young talent out here working and all these coaches,” he said.

As for his talents, Britten hopes to trade his skills to reach his dream.

“My dream is to play college ball,” he stressed. “I don’t have a dream school as I just want to play ball in college and earn a degree.”

As for why colleges should take notice, Britten kept it short.

“To be honest, it’s my work ethic,” he said. “There is a lot of stuff I like to do on the field. I like playing running back and receiver as I’ve got great ball catching skills.”

In talking with Western Hills head coach Armand Tatum, he stressed Britten is one of the most talented prospects he’s seen in several years.
