Hard working paying off

The time for conditioning is over and it's about to be time for the Apopka (Flor.) football team. They are scheduled to start their spring practices this Wednesday and there is no one more excited about it than quarterback Zack Darlington.

Zack Darlington from Apopka (Flor.) is itching for spring football to start. The 6-foot-2 and 205-pound quarterback is just days away from getting back out on the field and really starting the evaluation process.

"We haven't started yet," Darlington said. "We start Wednesday. I imagine that a lot more colleges will be by to see all of the players at Apopka after we get started."

Nebraska is a team that offered Darlington in early March. Since the evaluation period has started the coaches from Nebraska haven't been by to see Darlington yet. That should change really soon.

"No sir, Nebraska hasn't been here yet. I have been talking with Coach Tim Beck and he said that he would be down here soon to see me. I think that he was waiting for us to start practice."

There were a couple of schools that stopped by Apopka last week. They were actually the first two teams according to Darlington. "Baylor was here on Friday and West Virginia was here the other day. No one else from any other schools have been here."

Darlington suffered an arm injury last year and says that the arm is good to go. He also says that he's never felt stronger and faster than what he does right now and the measurements and times that he's taken recently prove it.

"My arm feels good. I have never been as strong as this before. I dropped my 40 time from a 4.60 to a 4.43 hand held when I got times the other day. I also squatted 455 and benched 275. Hard work has been paying off."
