Ballou left tackle Levon Livingston will make an unofficial visit to Happy Valley this weekend to take in Penn State’s game against Michigan, his first live major college football game, he said Wednesday morning.


The 6-foot-7, 270-pound junior, could be playing major college football himself in two years. He caught serious exposure this summer at the University of Georgia football camp, and since, has netted interest from Clemson, West Virginia and Tennessee. Livingston will travel with Ballou wide receiver Delonte Moore to visit Penn State this weekend. Moore, a sophomore, currently holds an offer from Clemson.

“I’m really excited,” Livingston said. “I think its good…[the sacks] helped me a lot. It could have been better though. I could’ve worked harder every game, every practice.”

Livingston has been one of the more productive two-way linemen in the DCIAA this fall. He recorded 10.5 sacks the first four games of the season, and helped the Knights to a 3-1 start by anchoring an offense that averaged over 25 points per game in that span. Ballou has lost two straight, however, being shut out by Dunbar and H.D. Woodson in back-to-back weeks. The three-game gauntlet culminates Friday with a matchup against Wilson, where Livingston expects “a lot of running.”

“It really hasn’t been that hard,” Livingston said of the two-game skid. “I just think we gotta work harder and execute our plays.”
