Player Info

I have a passion and enjoyment to make people around me great. The game of football has given me the opportunity to do just that. I am a QB in the class of 2020 at 4AAAA West Laurens High School located in Dexter Georgia. I am an honor student and currently maintain a 3.8/4.0 GPA. I am a member of the Anchor club and Beta Club and enjoy giving back to my community through these 2 organizations. I would like to attend a college that challenges me on and off the football field while giving me a chance to be a part of something special at the highest competition level that I am qualified for.

SIZE:
AJ has very good size for a 2020 Pro Style QB at 6’0” 175 lbs. Throws with a tall platform. He works the entire backfield, with roll outs in either direction. Shows good vision as he surveys the field, makes throws that include a high release point. Should be able to add more bulk to his frame over the next couple year.
ACCURACY:
When AJ 's able to set up for delivery, he’s right on the mark. Great anticipation of his receivers routes. With many of his throws happening while on the run, he loses a bit on accuracy. He does square up nicely towards his receivers while planting his feet in the same direction. Still room for improvement at a 52% completion rate.
ARM STRENGTH:
He gets good height and distance on his throws. Strong throws made at the short and intermediate range, along with a solid vertical passing game.
RELEASE:
A left handed QB. He throws with an over the top delivery, along with an arm motion extended at three quarters. His release point is raised above, giving his throws extra lift. Gets the ball off quickly into the secondary, with increased momentum throughout his arm motion.
THROW ON RUN:
This is an area of strength for AJ. He uses the entire field well by getting to the outside quickly, displaying good vision and ability to follow his receivers routes. Very good body rotation and feet placement. Able to work both sides of the field.
FOOTWORK:
Very good movement in either direction in the backfield. He shows good agility as he works to avoid traffic while creating space for himself. Good speed on the run, able to get away from would-be tacklers with a burst of speed and long stride.
POISE:
Shows good patience as he waits for the play to develop and the confidence while leading his unit downfield. Playing at the Varsity level, AJ seems very much in control as he controls the pace of the game.
POCKET PRESENCE:
Good awareness of defensive pressure and well as the space around him. He’s perfected the roll out, able to hit at both ends.
DECISION MAKING:
While on the go, AJ's able to zone in on his best option receiver. He a quick hitting QB, who wastes very little time connected with his target.
TOUCH:
This is an area of skill for AJ, he does a nice job adding a soft touch to his passes made at the intermediate and long range.
