“As of right now Maximo Espitia Jr. may be the best overall player statewide for the class of 2012. You would never know this by his humble approach to life. Head Coach Scott DuFault and Offensive Coordinator Isaac Parker both agree that he’s the “real deal”.
He’s an imposing sophomore standing 6-3 and weighing a solid 205. He stepped in immediately and made his presence known helping to lead the Saxons to the 2nd round of the State Playoffs.
He had 39 receptions for a combined 850 yards and 13 TD’s. Eye popping numbers for a kid that has just gotten started busting up secondary’s.
Junior takes a lot of pride in his academics currently sporting a 3.8 G.P.A…One of the house rules is that no sports will be played if his G.P.A slips below a 3.5. He makes sure that this is never an issue working hard in the classroom and also volunteering his time at the local middle school doing odds and ends.”

|VITAL STATS – Maximo Cesar Espitia Jr.|
|40 Yard Time||4.6 secs|
|Class||2012 (High School)|
Espitia will be letting Cali see what he has to offer as he plans to attend the USC rising stars camp with some of the best recruits in the country. He will also showcase his talents at the Oregon and Oregon State day camps.
There aren’t a lot of kids that are considered D-1 worthy at such a young age, but most evaluators concur that’s exactly what he is. The size is there, his attitude is in check, and his numbers speak to his recognition. His goals include leading the Saxons to a league title and a state championship.
Junior continues to give praise to his teammates and family whenever you speak to with him about the future. Most would agree that things are looking bright for this standout athlete who stands to make things pretty tough for opposing teams down in the Valley.
