COOKEVILLE, Tenn. — Zach Stewart didn't take playing for a title this week lightly.

The Tennessee commit plans to "hit the weightroom like crazy" as he's ready to embark on a college career after this season at Coalfield (Tenn.) High School came to a close Friday.

In 2014, the 6-foot-4, 305-pounder entered his season finale with 52 pancake blocks and didn't relinquish a single sack. On defense, the fifth-year starter piled up 77 tackles, 21 tackles for loss, 11 sacks, three forced fumbles and two fumble recovers.

On Monday, Stewart earned recognition as the a two-time winner of the Tennessee Titans TSSAA Class A Mr. Football Lineman of the Year.

With Stewart paving the way, Coalfield advanced to the Class A state championship game but fell 56-14 to Union City on Friday afternoon at Tucker Stadium on the campus of Tennessee Tech.

The Scout three-star prospect and No. 73-ranked offensive guard in the 2015 class talked about his prep career and Tennessee future in the video below:
