Middletown (Ohio) athlete Zach Edwards always wanted to play safety. Surprisingly, it is because the 6-foot, 175-pound senior loves to tackle.

"I just like hitting people," Edwards said.

However, Edwards didn't have much of a chance to play safety at Middletown. First-year coach Troy Everhart estimated in two years Edwards played safety maybe three times before the 2011 season.
