Three-star Kentucky prospect
Jacob Tamme had another
big performance Friday as Boyle County routed Lexington Henry Clay 35-0 to win
its 47th consecutive game. The Rebels closed within three of Louisville Trinity's state record of 50 consecutive victories.
Tamme, a 6-foot-5,
205-pound wide receiver/safety, had a 29-yard touchdown catch, threw a 39-yard
touchdown strike on a lateral pass, and intercepted a Henry Clay pass in the end
zone to stifle the Blue Devils' best scoring threat of the night.
Boyle County, coming off three straight state
championships (two in Class 2A and the latest in Class 3A), has outscored its first two opponents 95-0 this year. The first
was defending Class 2A state champion Bardstown, and last night's was equally
impressive against the 4A Blue Devils, who were coming off an impressive 18-13
win over perennial power Fort Thomas Highlands.
Tamme has offers from Kentucky, Purdue, Northwestern and West Virginia. Also
showing heavy interest are Indiana, Notre Dame, Michigan and Ohio State. He's a
teammate of Kentucky's top offensive line prospect, 6-6, 270-pound tackle
Brodie Overstreet, who has offers from Kentucky, Louisville, Clemson,
Cincinnati, Purdue, Wake Forest and West Virginia.
