With this Northstar Football News recruiting profile, we head into the 320 area code to chat with NFN prospect Zach Plante from St. Cloud Cathedral. We asked Zach about his season, his recruiting interest, and what he learned about himself as a player.
Zach Plante, Class of 2022 (Sophomore)
Position: Running Back/Wide Receiver/Defensive Back
High School Program: St. Cloud Cathedral
Get to Know Zach Plante
Plante is an all-around player for the Crusaders. He plays running back, wide receiver, defensive back and is also a kick returner. What people outside of St. Cloud should know about Plante is he has great hands and great speed which makes him a threat on offense. Zach credits his two biggest strengths as something we already talked about, his speed and his position flexibility which make him a great ATH for the Crusaders.
Best Parts About Wide Receiver/Running Back
To start with wide receiver, Zach’s favorite parts are “being involved with every play” whether it’s blocking for a run or running routes on a pass play. With running back, his three favorite things are blocking, running the ball, and connecting on passing routes.
Plante currently doesn’t have any interest or offers but is “welcome for ANY opportunity to play college football at any level” he told Northstar Football News
Improvement from the Off-Season by Plante
The two biggest things the Cathderal Crusaders coaching staff has told Zach in previous seasons to work on are his hands and route running. He has spent tons of his time in the off-season by going to football camps and working individually with his coaches after practices, which is key to his improvement this season.
Similar to our most recent profile on Totino-Grace QB Kristoff Kowalkowski, Zach said his dad has had the biggest impact on his football career with the St. Cloud Cathedral Crusaders. “He has always been there for me and is always looking to improve for the better of myself,” Plante told Northstar Football News about his father.
Biggest Things Zach Learned About Himself This Season
The biggest thing Zach learned about himself this season with the Crusaders is that he can “always contribute more” to his team and has become a better team player. “My role is not bigger than the team and I should always have my teammates back,” Plante says about his St. Cloud Cathedral teammates in his final statement to Northstar Football News
