Player Spotlight: Dashaun Tolefree C/O ’23 Defensive Back

Dashaun Tolefree is a dynamic playmaker and the first JUCO athlete that we have written on. Tolefree attends Arkansas Baptist College in Little Rock, Arkansas.

Tolefree is a defensive back for the Buffaloes, and he also sees time on special teams as a punt returner.

The 6’2, 175-pounder has great size for a defensive back, as well as great length.

Despite not playing the full season last fall, Tolefree racked up monster stats on the year,, as he finished with 17 pass deflections on the year, to go along with 4 interceptions and 12 tackles.

Heading into the spring season due to Covid-19, Tolefree will now be a full-time starter for the Buffaloes and he is excited to get back on the field.

“I feel like this season, the entire team is on the same mission,” Tolefree said. “Our brother on the team, Kam, passed away this spring and we all have the same goal; to turn a lot of heads and to honor him in the process.”

Tolefree is a burner on the field, as he turns heads with his 4.4 speed in the forty-yard-dash!

Despite the speed and the stats, Tolefree wanted to share with me what he feels is separates him from other players.

“I feel like my size and my length truly help me at the position that I am at,” Tolefree said. “I have the quickness to play the cornerback position as well. My quickness will allow for me to dominate the game.”

“I also like to think that I am very technically sound and that helps me when defending opposing offenses. Now that I am a starter and a team captain, I expect my game to speak for itself this spring.”

Tolefree sounds like a true game-breaker on the field!

Tolefree wanted to share a Bible verse that he holds dear to his heart; “I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me.”~Philippians 4:13

In addition to the stats, the attributes and the blazing speed, Tolefree also gets it done in the classroom, with his 3.3 GPA being more than enough to play at the next level.

While Tolefree recently got his first offer from Arkansas Tech, we look for this dynamic playmaker to rack up more offer by the end of his season in the spring.

Tolefree is a December ’20 graduate and he will be playing this spring. His first game will be a trip to Garden City Community College on March 27, 2021. Kickoff is set for 1pm.
