Former Central football player Azur Kamara is signing a letter of intent to attend and play for the University of Kansas.  The defensive end spent the last two years in Yuma, playing junior college ball at Arizona Western.    This year, the Matadors were undefeated until losing at East Mississippi in the NJCAA Championship game.   Kamara had 12.5 sacks and 15.5 tackles for losses this year.   Since his high school days, he has grown two more inches and a few pounds to 6-6 and 230 pounds.

As a senior with the Bobcats, Kamara was named Channel 12’s Friday Night Fever Defensive Player of the Year for Arizona.  Only six years after relocating from the Ivory Coast, and three years playing football, he broke the state sack record.  In his senior year, he had 107 tackles, 25.5 sacks, 47 tackles for loss, three forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries. He also ran two kickoffs back for touchdowns.
