Zachary, La (NBC33) — While many sports fans' eyes were on the NFL Combine, one local high school athlete was making his name known at another.
Zachary High Junior Forrest Town finished third out of over a thousand athletes at Nike's Sparq Combine.
The Louisiana native posted a 4.5 forty-yard dash time to go along with a 40 inch vertical jump.
Colleges across the country are starting to take notice of not only his athletic ability, but academic achievements as well. Tulane, Harvard and Yale have all been in contact, and he's thinking about heading to an Ivy League school.
Town tells NBC33 he has never made anything other than an "A" in the classroom.
Matt Boudreaux will have more of his story tonight on NBC33 News at 10.
