Kentucky Passing Game Coordinator and Wide Receiver’s Coach Tee Martin is making a lot of appearances at various schools in his home-state of Alabama. One school that he’s visited is Lee High in Huntsville, AL. The player he checked out was Chester Rogers.
Last season Chester Rogers was an all-around threat for Lee High school with 500 receiver yards and 10 touchdowns. He also rushed for four more scores and 250 yards. To top it off, defensively he had three picks.
“I played very good. I led my region in receiving touchdowns,” said Rogers.
It’s clear that Rogers is a talented athlete, but what are his strengths on the field, specifically?
“I’m a very athletic wide receiver. I use my quickness to get off the line. I rarely get jammed. I run great routes and I pretty much catch everything thrown my way,” he said.
Rogers is still in the early stages of recruiting, but he picked up one scholarship offer from Tennessee Tech. He’s hearing from Memphis who may also be offering soon. But he’s hearing from Kentucky, Vanderbilt, Tennessee, UAB, Georgia and Middle Tennessee State as well.
This weekend, Rogers made a trip to Lexington to camp at Kentucky and felt great about what he saw.
“I love Kentucky. It was a great experience. I love the football facility and the weight room stood out the most. What I really like was the coaching staff. They were awesome, very helpful. Coach Tee Martin made me feel comfortable and helped me out a lot. They were very helpful,” he continued.
Rogers felt like he performed well at the camp against several quality opponents.
“I did great at the camp. The drill session and one-on-ones really impressed Coach Tee,” said Rogers. “He fell in love with me then. I ran a 4.2 shuttle, a 4.6 forty and a 38 inch vertical. I didn’t get stopped in one-on-ones. So I’m pretty satisfied with my performance.”
