When it comes to my skill set I feel like I have a lot to offer a college, my throwing mechanics are as good as anyone’s in the state of Oregon, I can throw the deep ball and also put touch on passes. When it comes to the mental aspect of the game I understand the game inside and out, from little things to big things, in perpetration. I can be ready for various fronts and pre-snap and post-snap coverages. With the combination of my coaching to my preparation and my work in the offseason I believe that my game with transfer to the college game very well.|
