Now that high school football is over, John Giddens is working to get better as a player and looking at his college options. Scout Kentucky Preps caught up with Giddens.

As a senior, John Giddens and his Male Bulldogs reached the 6A state championship. This was a season that saw Giddens rush for 1094 yards and 10 touchdowns on the year. The 5-foot-9, 175-pound running back also rushed for 10 touchdowns helping Male to an 11-4 record.

Individually, I feel my performance was good. I’m not going to say it was my best. I believe it could have been better,” said Giddens.

But Giddens was pleased with Male reaching the state title game and overachieving this season, somewhat.

“It was rewarding. Making state your senior year is what every football player wants and for us seniors, it came true,” he said.

Giddens also took this season as an opportunity to become a better player in several aspects of his game.

“I think I improved on learning more about the game of football,” said Giddens. “Also, I improved on speed, ball-handling and blocking. Everything that a great running back needs, I feel I got a step closer,” he said.

Giddens is awaiting his first offer, but he’s talking to several schools and will make some visits here during the off-season, before making his decision.

“Now that the season is over, I plan to visit Murray State, Cincinnati, Ball State and other schools,” he said. “I have talked to a lot of schools between my junior year and this year,” he said.

Giddens will also be running track again this year.
