STEPHENSON LINEBACKERS COACH CORY JOHNSON "Darreon is one of the top five linebackers I've ever coached. I've had the pleasure of coaching three linebackers that played in the NFL and Darreon ranks right there with them.
Darreon is athletic and is blessed with intelligence. It's like having a coach on the field with Darreon out there. He was very much one of our quarterbacks on the field. Watch our film and you'll see Darreon directing traffic like a police officer."
