After leading Male to a 10-3 record as a junior, John Giddens hopes to lead Male to the next step. Giddens talks with Scout Kentucky Preps.

One of the state’s top football programs, it’s not surprising that Male High (Ky.) is home to one of the top running backs in Kentucky’s 2011 class. John Giddens rushed for 961 yards and scored 26 touchdowns as a junior which earned him District Player of the Year.

“I would say I had a good season,” said Giddens.

Giddens is blessed with several attributes required to be a great running back. “I have good speed (4.42 forty) and vision,” he said. “I am strong and light on my feet. So it helps m move better. I would describe myself as an all-around player,” he said.

“I always want to find ways to get faster. So I want to get better at my speed,” he said.

Improving speed is one of the most important things Giddens hopes to do this summer. “My biggest goal is to out-do my last season. I want to get bigger and faster and score more than I did last year and have more yards,” he continued. “I want to work hard every day and teach myself new skills. I also want to help my team win the state championship,” he finished.

While Giddens has high hopes for next season, he’s already getting interest from a few colleges because of his skills.

“I’ve been to Ball State, Cincinnati and Kentucky. I think I did real well running the 40 yard dash at Kentucky and Cincinnati,” he said. “I’m hearing from Kentucky the most right now,” Giddens said. “I have no offers at this time, but I have talked to many coaches,” he continued.

Giddens isn’t sure about when he’ll make his college choice, but he is looking at distance from home, academics and what the school as a whole can offer.
