Tyler Schweitzer is one of the quality young players at Highlands High (Ky.) this year. The junior took a few moments to talk with FOX Sports Next about his game his off-season.

Highlands High won the 4-A championship last season behind great play from Kentucky signee Patrick Towles and a host of other seniors. Tyler Schweitzer was one of the younger players who contributed to the state title.

"I think I did pretty well. I definitely could have done better. But it was really cool being a sophomore, playing with seniors and playing with Towles," said the 6-foot-2, 260-pound offensive lineman.

So what did Schweitzer do last season to contribute and what does he consider as the best assets of his game.

"I would say that on the field, I know the way to block. I can pick out angles well. I'm a little undersized, so I'm quicker than the guys I go against," he said. "I'm trying to get better by getting stronger and faster. And I'm just trying to figure out the best way to make the block," he continued.

Schweitzer hasn't had a lot of major contact with colleges, but he has been out to some camps where he has hopes of boosting his stock.

"I went to Notre Dame's camp. It was an all lineman camp. I feel like I was a lot faster than those guys. I didn't get as many reps in the one-on-ones. I think the scouts noticed my speed," he said.

Schweitzer also went out to Vanderbilt's camp last weekend.

"I was looking forward to showing them that I have a good motor and that I'm going to try the hardest," he said. "It was good at Vandy. I really enjoyed working with the staff there. It seems like a very fun place to play football," he continued.

Schweitzer also plans to head to Cincinnati for their Friday Night Lights camp.
