Cameron Levis

Lakewood High School soccer player, Cameron Levis, would be described by his teammates as a great and athletic player, but there’s more to him than just being extremely good at soccer. Levis, 16, is a junior at Lakewood High School. He would be described by his friends as a great and positive person to be around.

“He is very kind, respectful, and selfless, but doesn’t let others walk all over him. He knows his self-worth and acknowledges as well as compliments others’ self-worth. He is a great friend and would drop anything if you truly needed him. He values his friends and is very caring and he cares very empathetic. He is an amazing person,” friend and junior at LHS, Lili Bender, describes Levis.

Q: Is there a message that you want to portray to the younger athletes on the team or just in general?

A: This year I hope to reach the district finals in the playoffs and have a chance to play St. Ignacio’s for the district championship.
