Graves' Zach Katzman to MSU football

Graves County Eagle Zach Katzman signed a letter of intent on National Signing Day, Feb. 6, to play football for Murray State University. Katzman, a 5-foot, 10-inch, 180-pound running back and cornerback rushed 250 times this year for some 2,265 yards, averaging 188.8 yards per game and 9.02 yards per carry. He scored 34 touchdowns. He set numerous records during both his senior year and for his total high school career. A three-year starter, he was named to the 2012 Courier-Journal All-State First Team as a running back, the Associated Press All-State Team as an honorable mention for running back and defensive back, the Pepsi/Paducah Sun All-Region First Team as a running back, the BluegrassPreps.com First Team as a running back, and the Willie 102.1 FM Player of the Year. Perhaps most impressive is Katzman’s status as the first player in Graves County history to rush for more than 2,000 yards in one season and the school’s all-time leading rusher. He is especially known for his strong work ethic.
