The 2012 running back, Anthony Wales, is one of the best backs in Kentucky regardless of class. Scout Kentucky Preps caught up with Wales for an interview.

After a successful season, Anthony Wales has proven to be one of Kentucky's best. Wales amassed 1950 yards and 31 touchdowns as a sophomore. Now Wales is preparing to get ready for his junior year.

"I think I gave everything I had this year, even though we didn't win state. I played at my full ability," he said. "My biggest goal going into next year is to become the best running back in the state," said Wales. "I want to lead my team to another state championship," he continued.

The 5-foot-9, 175-pound back wants to add more strength to his body to make him a more effective runner. "I wan to increase my size and build my frame," he said. "I want to become a better leader on and off the field," he said. "I think of myself as a hard worker. I always give it 110 percent to go out and win every game," said Wales. "I work hard in practice and games. I'm very consistent about what I do."

A few schools have taken notice of his consistency and work ethic.

"I hear mostly from Louisville, Kentucky and Indiana," he said. "I'd love to play for my city. I like Kentucky a little bit. That's who my dad likes. I like Indiana too. That's a nice program and it's not too far from home," he said.

Scout Kentucky Preps will continue to monitor Anthony "Ace" Wales over the next two seasons.
