Eastern Washington offensive lineman Kaleb Levao granted sixth year of eligibility

February 21, 2019

Eastern Washington offensive lineman Kaleb Levao – an All-Big Sky Conference selection last season – will return for the 2019 season.

Levao was recently granted a medical hardship waiver by the NCAA, allowing the 6-foot-4, 300-pound guard to pursue a sixth year of eligibility this fall.

Levao missed all but two games in 2017 with a knee injury.

Last week, EWU All-American center Spencer Blackburn was granted a sixth year of eligibility, a hardship waiver that stemmed from a thumb injury that forced him to miss the 2015 season.

EWU returns four All-Big Sky offensive lineman, including tackles Chris Schlichting and Tristen Taylor.
