Jack of the Week: Zek Fancher

By Coleman Swierc

NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) -  If practice stats counted, Zek Fancher would be on top.

"At practice I catch 150 balls a day," the Lufkin native says.

But practice is just that, practice.  Fancher's game stats are minimal.

"No catches, no yards," he says.

Fancher would prefer a little action in the game but makes the most of his practice time.

"Hands down, he's one of the hardest working receivers on this team," S.F.A. leading receiver Duane Brooks says.  "He (Fancher) may work harder than me, and the rest of the starters."

"I practice hard," Fancher says.  "So that I can make the most of my opportunity in the game."

Watching practice you could never tell that Fancher hardly runs a route in a game

"I play a lot of special teams," he says.  "If that is my opportunity, then I'm going to seek it."

He knows his opportunity at wide out will one day come at a place he dreamt of playing at.

"This is where I wanted to go," Fancher says.  "I have come to these games my whole life. For me to play here, it is a great opportunity and I am glad I have this opportunity to play here at S.F.A."

When his number finally does get called, Fancher wants to make the most of it.

"I get my first catch, I'm going to the house."

Zek Fancher is you jack of the week.
