Player Info

I have been playing football since I was four years old, and been a starting QB since 2nd grade. It has always been a goal of mine to play college football. I grew up watching Tim Tebow and the Florida Gators. His dual threat ability, heart and determination have inspired the way I play. I have worked hard to be a college QB by improving my speed, strength and size, and I also have an excellent understanding of the game. I am coachable, hard working, smart, and I continue to strive to get better. Since I am not the biggest player on the field, I have learned to work harder than anyone else. I plan to go to college and graduate with a BS in Finance, and will be an asset to your program academically and athletically. If you're concerned about my size, studies have shown that short QB's do just as well if not better than the tall ones when we are given a shot. Though it's harder to evaluate my command of the mental aspects of the game, that is my strength, and in practice what is going on between your QB's ears is a lot more important than how far they are from the ground. https://www.cleveland.com/datacentral/index.ssf/2017/02/stats_show_shorter_nfl_quarter.html

SIZE:
Sam stands in at 5'9" 140 lbs for a 2020 Dual Threat QB. What he lacks in size he makes up for in heart and determination. He stands tall in the pocket, able to survey the field for potential targets. High release point, adding height to his delivery. Should be able to add bulk to his frame over the next couple years as he preps for the collegiate level.
