Warren Central High School football player Tevin Bell finished his senior season as one of the best cornerbacks in the city.

Although the Vikings only played eight games on the field this year, Bell still managed to put up impressive stats.

During the the 2020 football season, Bell had five interceptions on the Vikings defense and became well known for his ability to shut down any wide receiver who lined up against him. He also had eight pass deflections along with 16 tackles on the year.

With his great athletic ability, Bell is the player his coaches turned to for a big play.

“Tevin is the type of athlete you want to build your program based on,” said Vikings assistant coach Ced Jackson. “Hardworking, determination, versatile, respectful and most of all, coachable. His passion and love for the game and his team could never be questioned, and it was an honor to be his coach and watch him grow as a person.”

Bell really showed off his talents when the Vikings played against Madison Central where he caught two big interceptions in the 8-0 victory for Warren Central.

He has not announced his future plans but scholarship offers should be rolling in soon for this outstanding athlete.
