BIBB COUNTY HEAD COACH MIKE BATTLES
"What a great young man and football player. Zac is everything you'd want in a running back. The great ones play their best against the best. Zac had his best games in the big games.
"I've been at this (coaching) for 13 years and he's the best I've ever been around. Everybody knew who was going to get the ball when they played us and Zac still got the job done.
"He has all the character and discipline you could want. Zac is as unselfish a player as I've ever been around. Vanderbilt is getting a young man that will represent the university the right way. He's not looking for a bunch of headlines."
