The 5-foot-11, 190-pound senior running back and defensive back rushed for 2,485 yards and 44 touchdowns this past season, leading the Wolverines (11-2) to the Class 3A state semifinals. In three postseason games, Ifanse rushed for 604 yards and 11 scores. He broke the 200-yard rushing barrier six times this fall and recorded 34 tackles on defense. Ifanse concluded his prep career with 4,158 rushing yards and 65 touchdowns.
Ifanse has maintained a 3.02 GPA in the classroom. He remains undecided upon a collegiate destination.
A member of the Young African American Men’s Group at Bellevue High, Ifanse has volunteered locally as a youth football coach. “Isaiah Ifanse is hands down the best back we’ve seen in the time I’ve been coaching at Redmond,” said Jason Rimkus, head coach of Redmond High. “He’s by far the toughest kid to tackle. He’s so strong, runs violently and gives tremendous effort on each down.”
