Zion Mason, a class of ’23 phenom, is a player whose talents get well and often utilized for Covington Catholic’s varsity football team. The diminutive 5-9, 163-pounder has found various ways to contribute to his team’s success.
Mason runs the 40-yard dash in 4.47-seconds. He is a vital cog on the team’s 4X100 relay team which finished state runner-up a year ago when he was just a sophomore.
Mason has shown more than burst and speed over the course of his football career. He has shown vision and shake together with the uncanny ability to find the end zone in a variety of ways.
Mason was among the few players in Kentucky over the course of the ’21 season who scored TDs rushing, via pick-six, and returning a kick. That would constitute quite a bit of value if that was just all he did. It wasn’t.
He played DB defensively too. On defense he registered 23-tackles, 2-TFLs, with 2-INTs.
There is no question Mason will be among the more heavily recruited players in Kentucky’s ’23 class. His 4.47-second, 40-yard dash will insure that being the case. That 3.3 GPA won’t hurt either.
Mason is a kid whose versatility is both admirable and can’t be questioned. What else was admirable and beyond question in ’21 was his value. We don’t believe ’22 will be any different.
