Nagel hoping to make a name for himself

Often in high school football is littered with star athletes with me-first attitudes. But then there are the players who play their roles and are willing to do the dirty work. Brady Nagel does the dirty work.

Often in high school football is littered with star athletes with me-first attitudes. But then there are the players who play their roles and are willing to do the dirty work. Brady Nagel does the dirty work.

Brady Nagel, 5-foot-11, 190-pounds, plays linebacker and wide receiver for Fern Creek. He's primarily a linebacker, but he plays receiver because he has great hands.

"I would describe myself as someone who plays the game because I love it," said Nagel. "(I play) not because of the scholarships and opportunities. I play ruthless on the field, but smart," he said.

Nagel is also a hard worker. He hits the weight-room hard.

"Coaches love my enthusiasm in the weight-room. I'm one of the few who enjoy weight lifting. My strength and IQ of the game would definitely be my strength," he said. "I want to get better at everything. There's always room for improvement," Nagel continued. "I'm in the weight-room three times a week and also running at home."

Nagel helped his team out the most during the post season, helping the Tigers into the second round of the playoffs.

"I think I played good when my team needed me. I stepped up during the playoffs and started our final two games," Nagel said.

Nagel's not hearing from schools at this point because he hasn't played much, but he's hoping to hear from Kentucky, Miami, Louisville and Western Kentucky. And he's willing to do what it takes to hear from those programs.

"My goals for the off-season are to become better in every aspect of my game. I want to get faster, stronger, quicker and I really want to bring my team closer together, so we can stop playing as individuals."
