Now that he has had sometime to let it sink in,
Lexington's T.J. Stinde is beginning to realize just how impressive his senior season was.

East All-Star Running Back T.J. Stinde said, "The records I broke, the stats I put up are still overwhelming. They're sort of unreal the numbers I put up but I'm pretty proud of what I did and I still owe a lot to the team. Those yards wouldn't of came without 10 guys in front of me doing there job."

Stinde set state records running for three thousand three hundred twenty five yards and 48 touchdowns.

Lexington/East All-Star Coach Mike Castleman said, "The single season rushing record is one that I don't ever see getting broken. Especially the school record but even state wide. It's a pretty amazing record. The rushing touchdowns in a season, those are two big time records."

East All-Satr Linebacker Jesse Kemp said, "Every time I think about it and every time I look back in the books it's crazy what he's done. There's nobody that's been like him."

This week Stinde gets the chance to show the whole state that his big numbers weren't just because he played at a small school.

Stinde said, "It's going to be different getting a different level of competition out there. It will be a lot more similar to college."

On Saturday T.J. Will be on the East team along with conference rivals from Flanagan, that's part of the fun of an all-star game. Instead of chasing T.J. They'll be cheering him on.

East All-Star Defensive Lineman Cody Schwerin said, " Yeah, I have no problem with him being on my team. He's a good player and it will be nice having him run against other people. I'm playing defense this week so I'm going to do my best to keep them off the board and hopefully T.J. will be points up for us."
