One of the biggest receivers in the country -- on any level of football -- has become a major topic of discussion. Partly due to his height. Mostly because of his sport of choice. Senior Zach Peters (Plano, Texas/Prestonwood Christian), a wide receiver who's a shade under 6-foot-10 and 240 pounds, has been dominant in recent weeks on the football field. He had his best game of the year -- 17 catches for 245 yards and three touchdowns -- last Friday in a 62-34 win against in-town rival John Paul II (Plano, Texas). Pretty impressive numbers for an athlete is in his first year of varsity football -- and possibly last year of organized football. Peters is a star basketball prospect for Prestonwood, and he has verbally committed to play basketball for Kansas.
