@Gtown_Football scores coveted offensive guard in signing Owen LeMaster (@lemaster_owen) from Johnson Central. @1776Bank @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @MaxPreps @KyHighFootball

Owen LeMaster has been the premier Friday night performer in Kentucky High School football, at his interior OL slot, for the last three seasons. Now by this we aren’t insinuating he’s the top rated OG in Kentucky’s ’22 class.

We are talking about performance and not frame. We grade out football players around these parts, not comment on potential.

Georgetown College is the premier program in the Mid-South Conference. The program won multiple national and conference championships under former coach Bill Cronin and look to do likewise with National Champion coach and new hire, Chris Oliver (Lindsey Wilson).

For a program like Georgetown to continue to enjoy a championship level of success, it has to attract overlooked or out of frame division one talent to Scott County. No one knows this better than either Georgetown College or new coach, Chris Oliver, who faced the same dilemma in Columbia, Kentucky at Lindsey Wilson.

Georgetown, a little over a week ago, secured the commitment of Owen LeMaster, a first-team All-State player at offensive guard. With this signing, the Tigers may check the box marked “division one talent.”

In signing LeMaster, the Tigers get an accomplished run-blocker who has demonstrated, both on Friday nights and the combine/camp circuit, that he isn’t exactly lost when it is time to pass-set. LeMaster is 6-1 and weighs 285-pounds but has the feet of a ballet dancer.

One of the first things one notices about Owen is his being a “hard ankle.” His small ankles and quick, nimble feet grace him with a gait and speedy athleticism which LeMaster uses well both to block in space and engage defenders at multiple levels of the defense.

LeMaster is a brute in the weight room, bench pressing around 370-pounds and having repped 225-pounds on a bench press over 20 times at several combines while still in high school. LeMaster has a brutal punch and non-stop leg-kick and drive, running his feet through the whistle. Once he gets locked on a defender, the defender is inheriting the earth, mouthfuls at a time.

What LeMaster is getting in the Tigers is a NAIA program considered among the elite in the country at that level of play. The Tigers have won three (3) National Championships and 20 conference titles and regularly play in the NAIA national championship playoffs.

The Tigers have hired Chris Oliver away from Lindsey Wilson. Oliver led Lindsey Wilson to a the National Championship in ’20. Under Oliver’s stewardship, the Blue Raiders were Kentucky’s winningest college program over the last decade or so.

Bottom line: Gaining the signature of Owen LeMaster is a big-time pickup for a premier program. This could pay immediate dividends for Georgetown as it looks to establish Mid-South Conference dominance on the ground offensively moving forward.
