Western Kentucky made it clear early in the season that it wanted Boyle County receiver Seth Tamme on its football team next season by offering him a scholarship when he attended the Western-Eastern Kentucky game Sept. 10.
While Tamme didn't immediately say yes, he has now made a verbal commitment to the Hilltoppers after taking his official visit last weekend.
"I was just seeing what other opportunities that might come and (Western) ended up being the right place for me," Tamme said this morning. "They're a great family, and it seems like right fit for me. It reminds me a lot of Boyle County, the way they runs things."
Tamme finished his high school career as the most prolific receiver in school history. This past season, he led the area with 69 catches for 1,237 yards with 16 touchdowns while earning fist team Associated Press All-State honors. He also set school records for TD catches (39), receptions (177) and receiving yards (3,205).
