Zak Keasay School: Princeton
Ht: 6-0 Wt: 233 40: 4.85 Year: 5Sr
Bio:All-Conference selection as a senior after
leading the team in all tackling categories
with 127/16/8. Also accounted for 2 interceptions
and 4 pass defenses. Started as both
a sophomore and junior when he originally
led the team in tackles.
Positives: Explosive rundefending
linebacker who plays an aggressive
brand of football. Breaks down well, chases to
get involved in the action and displays terrific
quickness. Immediately diagnoses the action,
yet disciplined and seemingly has a sixth sense
as to what's happening on the field. Collapses
well from the outside to defend the run, wraps
up tackling and plays with a non-stop motor.
Displays a good change of direction and the
ability to pursue laterally.
Negatives: Undersized and
gets caught up in the wash across the field.
Must gather into tackles and slow shedding
Analysis: A high-revving defender with
a good motor and head for the game, Keasay
lacks the size to be a starter at the next level,
yet should be a competent backup for a 34
defense and a player who potentially stands out
on special teams.
