Throughout the course the 2009 season, I got a lot of, “you’re the best quarterback ever!” “Don’t forget me when you get to the NFL!” “Your the best quarterback this team has ever had!” After the season, I ended with a 129.4 QB rating, 1563 passing yards, 27 passing touchdowns, and a 64.7 completion percentage. Most of those recently mentioned stats were all league records. As summer rolled around, it was time to head to a few camps, and once I arrived at the camps I was shocked. Surrounded by hundreds of kids who “were the best quarterback ever,” was a humbling experience. In early June, we went to the Clemson Football Camp. Enveloped by hundreds of kids who all wanted to play for Clemson, it was hard to stand out from the crowd. Mostly, I worked with the QB coach and learned some good warm up drills as well…

Usually when your offense is on the field for only twenty or so plays, the game is not going well. However, in this game it turned out to be a good thing. The Lake Norman Storm scored on about one out of four plays. We threw for close to two hundred yards and ran for around seventy. Although the stats are impressive, we need to improve our offense when we get on our opponent’s side of the field. Turning the ball over three times on their side of the fifty, is not going to be acceptable down the road. But, Overall a good team effort. The Storm left everything out on the field and that is all you can ask for. A good start to what looks like will be a good season, however we have a lot of improvements to make and are looking forward to Monday’s practice.

“Wow what an arm! At the beginning of the season we knew we had a kid who could throw the ball. He has a strong and accurate arm.” (Coach Guy Lemke about me) A strong arm separates the good quarterbacks from the great ones. It is understood that every quarterback must have accuracy but a strong arm together with an accurate one is a deadly combination. Last season, I had six games with at least one pass over thirty yards. My average yards per pass was 9.9. During the offseason I work out four days a week just to increase my arm strength. To me, a strong arm is what completes a quarterback.
