Jack Zwernemann from Buillitt East High School is ready to seize the day in ’23. @1776Bank @PrepSpin @hardesty_baron @BECoachKendrick @MaxPreps @kyhighs @KyHighFootball @HLPreps @BE_Chargers @BESTRONG2021 @JackZwernemann @HopkinsCentral @_CoachManning @evans02_mike @Coach_Lovely

Can Zwernemann pick up the reins to the Chargers' attack and lead them to back-to-back 6A titles?

Jack Zwernemann is an extremely fine athlete with crazy good “change of direction” speed which indicates, to us, he is headed to “safety” at the next level, as opposed to the corner he’s playing for the Chargers right now. He also looks likely headed to QB on offense where he backed up “Mr. Football,” Travis Egan, a year ago. We happen to think he’s the man for the job.

Travis Egan threw for nearly 3,000-yards, 35-aerial TD’s, rushed for close to a 1,000-yards, and scored by land 17-times. He led the Chargers to its first-ever 6A football championship and is now headed to Louisville, Kentucky to join its FBS, Power-5 (ACC) program.

To quote the late George Jones, “Who’s going to fill [his] shoes?” That is a legitimate question.

There is an answer. What about Jack Zwernemann? Zwernemann, whose name may be harder to spell than supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, is a tremendous athlete and he has been playing terrific football, thus far, in his high school career.

In ’22, Zwernemann completed close to 62% of his passes in his QB-reserve capacity, threw for a few TD’s against no interceptions, and scored a rushing TD.

At his corner post, Zwernemann logged 29-tackles, 2 TFL’s, and was among the team leaders in Passes Broken Up (PBU’s). He has made the All-District football team, twice.

Zwernemann is a physical specimen. Zwernemann sports a 265-pound bench press. Zwernemann squats a cool 410. Zwernemann also ran the fast L-cone at the Best of the Midwest Combine (BOTMW) this year. He posted a blistering 7-seconds flat.

So, what does that mean exactly? Well, it means the 6,’ 190-pound Zwernemann is strong, explosive, and athletic as all get out with great change of direction quickness and speed.

Does that mean he’s ready to take the reins to the Chargers’ offense and pick up where Egan left off? You know, it just might!
