DUBLIN — Kevin Cervantes is anything but an imposing figure.
The Dublin senior linebacker stands in at only 6-foot-0 and 175 pounds — hardly a Dick Butkus frame.
He does, however, have an uncanny ability to get to the football, through a combination of quickness, the ability to slip blocks, and an acute awareness of where plays are heading.
He also has a healthy dose of attitude.
“People always talk down about my size,” Cervantes said. “So I’m always ready to go and hit somebody out there. I don’t fear getting hit. … I’m ready for anything, I guess you could say.”
