Zack Templin committed to Campbellsville a couple weeks ago, but after talking with his family, he chose to head another direction.

East Jessamine senior lineman Zack Templin initially committed to Campbellsville but after taking some time and talking to his family, he chose to change his commitment to Lindsey-Wilson.

"I sat down with my parents for a few nights and really discussed my decision and I felt like I wouldn't be happy at Campbellsville," he said. "Lindsey-Wilson seems like it's where I belong. I visited Lindsey-Wilson while I was committed and I fell in love with it again," he said.

One big thing that sold Templin on Lindsey-Wilson was the opportunity to play on the defensive side of the ball.

"I'm really excited about playing on the defensive line," he said. "Also, I'm really excited about being a part of a program that just started which is now beginning its second year. I really wanted to be a part of a new program that will win championships."

Templin visited Lindsey-Wilson twice before making his final decision.

"I visited twice, but we saw everything from the football facilities to the academic buildings to the dorms. So they showed me around so I could get a great feel for it," he said.

The Lindsey-Wilson football family as a whole welcomed Templin into the fold.

"Not only the coaches but other signees and players were really happy. I think they thought they were never going to get me. They showed some sign of relief that I wouldn't have to play against them," he laughed.
