Damon Iosefa of Norte Vista is SBLive/Sports Illustrated's Southern California Athlete of the Week (10/2/2023)

By Mitch Stephens, SBLive Sports,


Damon Iosefa has one college offer, but more figure to follow.

The 6-foot-2, 230-pound linebacker earned SBLive Southern California Athlete of the Week honors after a big performance during a 33-20 win at Muir-Pasadena on Sept. 22.

Iosefa did it all with seven tackles, an interception and a forced fumble.

That put the two-sport standout — he also plays volleyball — on a SBLive performance list with 19 other performers. He earned 30 percent of the vote to win the award for football players playing between Sept. 21-23.
