Templin leading an explosive run game

When you mention a team's running game and how strong it is, most people immediately look at the running back's production. But any running back will tell you that he can only be as good as his offensive line. Zack Templin's offensive line has opened holes for an average of nearly 400 yards per game.

East Jessamine looks to be one of the most explosive offenses in Kentucky this year. The Jaguars are averaging 43 points per game behind a rushing offense that is racking up 387 yards per contest. Zack Templin is the anchor for that offensive line.

"I think this has been the biggest improvement in my career," said Templin. "I'm just making plays for my team. I'm quicker, stronger and more dominant," he said.

They are 5-1 on the season with four regular season games to go and they have competed and dominated at a high level. "We lost to a very good Southwestern team in the last 14 seconds by one touchdown," said Templin. "I think this will be the best East Jessamine team there has been. We work so hard and we want it much more," he continued.

Templin's contributions haven't gone unnoticed as several schools are still showing interest. "Louisville, Kentucky, Western Kentucky, Eastern Kentucky, Bowling Green, Liberty, Marshall and Murray State (are recruiting me most)," Templin said.

The 6-foot-5, 300-pounder is still waiting on his first offer, but he feels that Louisville, Eastern Kentucky and Western Kentucky are the closest one to tendering those offers.

Getting one of those offers is one of Templin's goals going into the next several weeks to end the season.

"My goals are tow get my team to state and to get my first offer," he said. "It has yet to come in, but I'm gonna work my butt off to help my team and see where I'm gonna end up at," Templin said.
