Lone Oak was one of the western part of Kentucky's most talented programs. One of the prospects that stands out is junior defensive end Evan Sayner. FOX Sports Next has the latest on Sayner.

Sayner accumulated over 100 tackles and eight sacks last season or the Purple Flash, but his numbers aren't all that stand out. Sayner, at 6-foot-4, 250-pounds, is physically imposing.

"He currently bench presses 365, cleans 285, dead lifts 425 and squats 405," said Brian Sayner, Evan's father.

Sayner certainly stands out on film as he is able to make plays in the backfield and in traffic, attacking the ball carrier. Sayner has the look of a strong-side defensive end at this stage because of his size and his motor.

"I'm extremely dedicated and I play with smart aggression," Sayner said. "I don't lose control of myself, but I'm very physical and quick off the ball."

Sayner is focused on getting stronger, spending time weight lifting this off-season, but he is also trying to improve on his speed and agility. All of these improvements can help him have an even better season than last.

"I feel like I had a great year. But there's always room for improvement," Sayner said.

His play last year was enough to make some programs take a look at Sayner and his talents.

"I've probably heard from Missouri the most," said Sayner. "I'm also hearing from Kentucky, Western Kentucky, Southern Illinois, Eastern Illinois, Northern Illinois and Cincinnati," Sayner said.

"I attended Junior Day at Western Kentucky and will most likely be going up to Missouri this April," Sayner said.

FOX Sports Next will keep you posted on Evan Sayner.
