A strong and aggressive linebacker, Dylan Sims stood out on his Oldham County squad as a junior. Now as one of the team leaders, Sims could see his play and his stock rise even more.

Most good linebackers have similar strengths and builds, which is very much the case with Dylan Sims. "I consider my strengths to be reading and reacting and finding the ball to make plays," said the 6-foot-2, 225-pounder. "I also feel that I'm good at filling the hole," he continued.

"I would like to get better with my speed and my footwork and also at shedding blockers," he finished.

Sims did a great job for his team as a junior, leading the team in tackles and receiving post season honors. "I played well this past season. I was the leading tackler with 111 tackles. I made First Team All-District," he said.

With his impressive effort as a junior behind him, now he plans to show the same efforts at numerous camps this summer. "I have a very busy summer. I have or will attend camps at Western Kentucky, Eastern Kentucky, Kentucky, Ashland, Bowling Green, Cincinnati, Wofford, Furman, Murray State, Lindsey Wilson, Tennessee-Martin, Elon, Campbell University and Jacksonsville State," said Sims.

Right now, there are no offers on the table for Sims, but Eastern Kentucky is showing him the most interest at this time.

While working at the camps and working on his own; Sims's goals are pretty clear. "My biggest goal this summer is to get as much exposure as I can and improve my speed, strength and my footwork," he continued.

As for choosing a school; Sims has two factors that stand out in helping him choose his college. "I'm looking for a place that is not too far from home and that I can come in and make an impact," he said. "I don't want to go to a school where I won't play," he said.
