Mail Piling Up For Terrell

The offseason has been busy for Zachary Terrell. While the Homestead High School (Ind.) quarterback is working out and preparing for his senior season, he is spending his time coaching his younger brother's sixth grade basketball team.

The season has gone well for Coach Zachary Terrell's team. They are now 25-3 on the season.

"I just do it for fun, they asked me to do it, and I said I would," Terrell said. "I love coaching the little kids. I love the game of basketball, almost as much as football."

The successful basketball coach is coming off a great junior season as Homestead's starting quarterback. Terrell (6'3, 205-lb) led his team to a 10-2 record and a deep playoff run in 2010.

Terrell was a big part of his team's success, throwing for 2,452 total passing yards, and 27 touchdowns.

Coming off a big season, Zachary Terrell is beginning to gain some interest. His list of interested schools includes Northwestern, Iowa, Indiana, Nebraska, Purdue, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and others.

While Terrell currently does not have any offers, he is constantly in touch with interested coaches, and researching each school.

"I'm trying to build a relationship, and see what school fits me not only as a player, but academically," said Terrell.

However, it's still way too early for Terrell to evaluate which schools he likes, because he still does not have any offers. While the letters and emails keep flooding in, Terrell is exploring each option.

"You never know who's going to jump the gun on you," said Terrell. "I haven't been able to look at a specific school. I'm, trying to keep all my options open."

Terrell has been in touch with coaches, and is working to set up some official visits. He said no dates are officially set, but he is hoping to visit each interested school.

As a junior, Terrell averaged 204.3 passing yards per game, and over 50 rushing yards per game. As a sophomore, Terrell threw for 1,810 yards and completed over 60% of his passes in nine regular season games, while rushing for 686 yards.
