Zack Templin had a productive season this year on both sides of the ball. Templin anchored the running game for an East Jessamine squad that averaged nearly 400 yards per game on the ground.

Junior running back Cameron Thomas was one of the state's top rushers with 2454 yards and 23 touchdowns behind Templin's many blocks and Zack had great performances all year.

"I feel like this has been the best season I have ever had on either side of the ball, with 45 tackles at nose guard and 70 plus pancakes at right guard," he said.

Because of his efforts and abilities, Templin has received offers and had a chance to play on the all-star game circuit.

"My off-season has been going better than I expected," said Templin. "I made All-State and received my first offer," he said. "UK has offered me as a preferred walk-on. I've got offers from Campbellsville, Lindsey-Wilson and Kentucky State," he said.

"I just played in the Best of the Bluegrass All-Star game," he said. "I think I could have played better, but I had six tackles and ran very well in the bad (weather) conditions," he said.

Templin plans to take some visits after Christmas break s up and then prepare to make his decision. He will also spend his off-season working on his game.

"I just want to get stronger and continue to talk with schools to try and narrow down my selection," he finished.

Templin's also hearing from Louisville, Marshall, Eastern Kentucky, Robert Morris and Murray State.
