Tedder started on both sides of the ball as a junior and helped lead the Gaels to their second CHSFL AAA championship game in three seasons. His play helped them rally from a season-opening loss and move into second place in the division.
Tedder has received scholarship offers from Towson, UNH and Southern Connecticut as a defensive end/outside linebacker.
Meet Kameron Tedder…
Name: Kameron Tedder
School: Iona Prep
What makes YOU Super 11? My ability to dominate on both sides of the ball and my sincere love and passion for the game.
What has helped put you in position to succeed on the football field? I have a tremendous amount of support from both my family and the coaches at Iona. They congratulate me when I’ve done well on the field, and critique me whenever there is room for improvement. Being critiqued can sometimes be painful, but I know in the end it will breed success.
Name your best attribute as an athlete and describe why. My desire to always listen, study, and stay coachable. These behaviors not only improve me as a player, but the team as a whole. I’m always looking for ways to improve my performance. It’s all about the pursuit of excellence!
Is there a current or former high school, college or pro athlete who you pattern your game after? I greatly admire Julius Peppers from the Chicago Bears. I study his techniques and hope to learn from them. I think the speed he plays the game at and the power he exhibits is phenomenal.
So far, what play, game or moment has been the best of your career? Last year Iona Prep played against Holy Cross, and during the game I was able to achieve four sacks. This was an amazing accomplishment for me as their offensive line appeared to be very well coached.
What do you consider to be your greatest accomplishments? My greatest accomplishment was being named a starter on both sides of the ball in my junior year — in addition, of course, to being named Super 11!
What are your goals for the 2011 season…
As a player? My goal is to be one of the top defensive linemen in my section.
As a team? This may sound like a redundant and common answer, but I would love for team to win the league championship.
Tell us something about yourself most people don’t know. Before every game, I mentally transform my focus into a elevated zone. I envision my plays before they even happen.
