Gaithersburg's Zack Fetters picks William & Mary

By Alan Goldenbach

Two weeks after he took an official visit to James Madison, Gaithersburg All-Met quarterback-safety Zack Fetters knew he'd have to be overwhelmed to give any other school his commitment.

Last weekend, William & Mary did just that. Fetters committed to the Tribe after taking his official visit, and it was easy to see why.

"My meeting with [Tribe] Coach [Jimmye] Laycock went beyond what I expected," Fetters said. "He was very straightforward and to-the-point just like [Gaithersburg] Coach [Kreg] Kephart.

"Then I met the players. All they talked about was defending their [Colonial Athletic Association] championship ring. But they don't just want that; they want the big one, too."

The 6-foot-3, 195-pound Fetters then got exactly what every recruit wants to hear: playing time is there for him wherever he can find it.

"The plans for me are, I can try to play quarterback," Fetters said, "but if I can get on the field at safety or wide receiver or linebacker, they'll do that. I have so much of an opportunity here."

Fetters led Gaithersburg to its best season in nearly a decade last fall, as the Trojans went 11-2 and reached the Maryland 4A semifinals. He threw for 2,106 yards and 28 touchdowns, rushed for 674 yards and 12 scores, and also, as Gaithersburg's free safety, intercepted 10 passes.

Fetters' parents, Mike and Denise, both went to William & Mary and have taken him to visit the school before there was ever a thought of him attending. Now, he's thrilled to have them take him back there again this summer.
