Did you know what you wanted to be when you were 14 years old?  For me it wasn't to play football.

But for 14-year old Zadock Dinkelmann it’s an easy question.  He wants to play football for the LSU.  And he’s already has made a verbal commitment!

So what does have to look forward to until he pulls on that Tigers jersey?  Well let’s break it down.  Next season his grandfather and head coach will be Sonny Detmer.  Dinkelmann’s uncle, former NFL quarterback Koy Detmer, will be his quarterback coach.  Detmer’s son, Koy Jr., also plays quarterback.

A 6-foot-4, 210 pound 8th grader with big dreams.  And they’ll only get bigger.
