Kid is not playing at this level unless he throws about 35 lbs. on that frame. His strength numbers are pretty poor....actually very poor for a H.S. senior. If anything...he may end up a WR or backup QB unless he gets much bigger. No room for 185 lb QB's in the option at 6'3. Plus, we run the multiple...very different then the traditional option. Does not make me feel better that he was 2nd team all Foothills...not exactly a great football section.

Funny you guys should mention that someone is too small. I just got the alumni magazine yesterday and in it is a nice story about Danes linebacker Victor Camacho. According to Ford, Camacho had two knocks on him when he came in as a freshman, too small and too slow. He worked hard when he got here and got into the starting lineup. Always great to read about guys who get written off like that and then come in and have productive careers.
