Zachary's Forrest Town impresses at Nike combine and in classroom

HS Football

POSTED: Thursday, February 28, 2013 - 11:00pm

UPDATED: Thursday, February 28, 2013 - 11:04pm

Zachary high school’s Forrest Town says it’s not easy balancing his book smarts and athletic skills. But, whatever he is doing it’s working.

“I just remind myself that it is something that I have been working on for a long time and I’m not ready to give it up right now,” Town said.

He says entirely too many hours of hard work and dedication have been put in to strive for anything but perfection.

“Mr. Wes Watts, our principal, talks to our kids every single day about striving for excellence and Forrest models that just as good if not better than anybody at our school,” Zachary head football coach Neil Weiner said.

At last weekend’s Nike SPARQ combine Town proved to be one of the most talented kids on hand. He finished third out of over 1,400 participants. His 4.55 40-yard dash time and 40-inch vertical jump were eye opening numbers.

“It was a big accomplishment for me but I wasn't expecting to do that well,” Town said.

“God has blessed him with a lot of talent but a lot of what he gets is from hard work. He is really seeing the fruit of his labor," Weiner added.

His hard work is paying off in the form of phone calls and emails from college coaches across the country.

“Coaches at Harvard, Yale and Dartmouth have shown a lot of interest and Tulane as well,” he said

But it’s his book smarts that may ultimately factor in most to where he goes after high school.

“Ever since elementary days I have made A's and when I came to high school I knew I had to keep it up,” said Town.

Not once has he ever come home with anything less than straight A’s on his report card.

“It definitely gets difficult at times. I'm taking AP and Honors courses. It's all about staying up late to get everything done. But I want to make good grades and I want to play sports,” he said.

It’s a rare combination of top-notch talent and all-American academics.

He says a chance to go to an Ivy League school may be an opportunity he can’t turn down.

In his senior year he will be counted on to play both offense and defense for the Broncos.
