Cresap working for more attention

Martha Layne Collins High School opened up this season and was lucky enough to gain a quality quarterback from Shelby County High when the districts were realigned. That quarterback, Branden Cresap, threw for 2367 yards and 30 touchdowns as a junior.

Martha Layne Collins High School opened up this season and was lucky enough to gain a quality quarterback from Shelby County High when the districts were realigned. That quarterback, Branden Cresap, threw for 2367 yards and 30 touchdowns as a junior.

"Last season I played good for the most part. I was more conservative then I would have liked, but that resulted in a low number of interceptions," he said.

The 6-foot-1, 185-pound quarterback has been flying mostly under the radar even though he camped at Western Kentucky, Murray State, Eastern Kentucky and Kentucky. He also attended the Elite 11 Camp in Ohio. "I felt I did pretty good, but I was definitely not as crisp as I am during the season," said Cresap.

"I can make most throws. I have a pretty accurate ball and I usually am a good decision maker," he said. "I need to work on not throwing off my back foot. I need to be more aggressive on the deep ball," he continued.

Cresap is still awaiting his first offer, but he's receiving attention from several schools. "I'm getting interest from Akron, Miami University, Tennessee-Chattanooga, Tennessee-Martin and Murray State," he said.

He hopes to receive some scholarship offers and make a college decision by December. But if he doesn't get those offers, he'll hold off until February. A quality education, being somewhat close to home and a good football program are the main factors in his decision. If Cresap continues his play, the scholarship offers should come and he'll be able to accomplish some big things on the field this season.

Branden wants to lead Collins to a state title, but he knows his goals from week to week are important as well. "My person goal the season is to win every game I play in. (That will) ultimately lead to a state championship if our team can get better every week and take care of business.
