He's spent this week on the University of Kentucky campus preparing for what he hopes will be Kentucky's fourth straight win in the all-star series.
"It has been a little rough trying to adjust to all the fast linemen we have here," Turner said after practice. "All the defensive linemen are so fast. The defense has been great from the first day and was just killing the offense early. But now we are used to it and doing better.
"This is almost like a college team with the speed we have at every position, especially the skilled guys."
Turner says he has never played against so many big, fast players at the same time until he got to all-star practice.
"During district play and early in the playoffs, you don't see players like this in Class A," Turner said. "They hit a lot harder here than I have ever been hit in Class A. And that's not even going full speed like we will be in the game."
Turner and Waggener's Alfonso Smith figure to be the feature backs in the one-back offense being implemented by Boyle County coach Chris Pardue.
"I'm rooming with Alfonso and we get along great. It's nice to be with someone from a different, school, class and district to share stories with," Turner said. "Our offense will be like what Boyle uses. We will probably alternate and I think we will be about 50-50 on the run and pass in the offense. We should both get plenty of chances to run the ball."
Turner says quarterback Curtis Pulley, Kentucky's Mr. Football, is "cool and smooth." He's impressed Turner with his passing, running and decision making.
However, Turner is having even more fun playing with the team's other quarterback, Boyle's Brandon Smith.
"It's kind of weird because he's from Boyle County and I am from Danville and we have competed against each other so long," Turner said. "We get along great. We have been friends, but now we finally get to play together."
Enjoying being around former rivals
Turner says it's nice to be around Smith and Boyle teammates Brandon Record and Greg Peck as well as other all-star players he competed against in high school.
"You see a different side of all these guys," Turner said. "We are all telling stories about when we played each other. It has been a good time."
One player Turner hadn't played against was Ballard defensive lineman Earl Heyman. Turner says Heyman, a Louisville signee, has impressed him more than any other all-star player.
"He just comes off the ball so fast and is in the backfield every play. It is hard to block him because he is so fast and strong," Turner said.
What if Tennessee has a player like that waiting for Turner Friday?
"I don't see that happening, but if they do we have a versatile offense," Turner said. "We have a lot of weapons to throw at Tennessee."
