Evaluation: 

Wore No.23 at HUB Football (April/2021). A dual-threat quarterback who owns a quick release and strong enough arm to make all the throws. Thrives in short-to-intermediate passing game; confident in his ability to squeeze the ball into tight windows… also showed pretty touch and nice timing on deep patterns. Demonstrates fundamentally sound footwork; smooth/fluid three, five and seven-step drop back…. Strong mechanics; upper body and lower body are in sync. Can throw in stride while on the move; will dip his arm angle to make the completion… seems to have a better feel rolling out and connecting to his right side. Can bide time in the pocket due to his mobility… short memory; doesn’t let poor throws affect him. Undersized but owns strong/compact build… Coaches praise his mental and physical toughness; natural born leader type. Nicholls State won back-to-back Southland Championships during his tenure. has worked with quarterback coach Steve Fairchild; currently playing for Columbus of indoor league, as of May/2021. Developmental quarterback who needs to work on his consistency and accuracy when throwing on the run to his left. Could be a player who sticks in CFL and eventually competes for a starting job north of the border.
