Interview by Carl Frederick
Every season Wyomissing seems not only to be churning out District titles but also massive offensive lineman. While teammate J”ven Williams has already enrolled early to Penn State, Pacen Ziegler is still out there waiting for the right opportunity. The first team all-state offensive tackle has offers from Stonehill College, Bryant University and Saint Francis University with more on the way. While the recruiting season is in full swing, Ziegler is in no rush and wants to make the best decision for him and his family. He stopped by to talk about his recruiting process and a few other topics below:
Carl Frederick: You have offers from all over the country, what has this experience been like for you?
Pacen Ziegler: This experience has been a lot of fun, and I’m glad to have met some great coaches and to have visited many excellent programs. I have definitely grown as a person through this whole recruiting process, and I can’t wait to get to the next level.
CF: Do you have any favorites or schools in your Top 5?
PZ: I would say as of now I don’t have any specific favorites. I’m starting my visits this Friday, so I will probably know more in the coming weeks.
CF: Playing with so many high caliber who have gone on to play major college football, do you get any advice from them?
PZ: Yeah for sure. J’ven Williams in particular has been a huge help to me, as he exploded recruiting wise last year and provided a lot of advice.
CF: After your heartbreaking loss how long did it take for you and your teammates to get back in the weight room, I am assuming you were in the next day lol?
PZ: That loss did hurt for a couple days, but there’s a point where you must move on. Everything happens for a reason, and I’m proud of all my teammates for allowing me to have such a great high school career.
CF: Give us a fun fact about Pacen Ziegler that our audience might not know.
PZ: One of my favorite things to do is to travel. I have visited 24 states and 13 countries and have gone on 7 cruises.
Ziegler is not in a rush and wants to enjoy the rest of his senior year of high school. Wherever he ends to deciding to play, that school will know for sure they have themselves an absolute stud to work with.
