1-In watching your basketball highlights it appears you are very talented on the court. You look very quick and seem to have a nose for the ball. How long have you played basketball?
I have been playing basketball since 1st grade.
I would say Wheelersburg because they are our rivals and they are always a solid team and we both have a lot of tradition.
Basketball has helped with football like having to make quick decisions as a QB and football helps with basketball being smart and making good choices like shots and passes
We have been lifting every day since the day after the State Championship game. The biggest three for me personally have been 1) a two-month online QB Academy group with about 8 other QB’s from around the country that focuses on reading defensive coverages. 2) working with a QB coach where 6-8 D1 QB’s are working out. And 3) having a daily schedule after school and weight lifting that rotates between improving my throwing (accuracy and distance) along with footwork, drops & watching film. My goal has been to spend one hour after school every single day improving some aspect.
I think it helps most with boots and play-action because most teams traditionally run strong to the right and it’s a natural roll back to the left.
It’s always an electric atmosphere, but playing on an off-night would make it a game that most football fans in the Tri-State would try to attend. I’d love it!
Reid was a once-in-a-lifetime talent and leader for our program along with the whole amazing senior class. We will really miss that class. Luckily for us, we have a ton of extremely talented starters in the upcoming Senior and Junior class returning that are working hard every day. QB’s always looked better when they have a great line, amazing coaches, and talented skill players surrounding them and I’m thankful and blessed that I have all three!
We have a trick pass play that we ran only one-time last year but it’s my favorite…and it scored :). I can’t say anymore because I want to run it again this year.
As an underclassman, the leadership has been amazing from our Senior classes the last two years. But they have graduated, so now it’s on the Juniors and my Sophomore class to step up as leaders and carry on the culture they’ve created.
Yes! I thank God that we were able to play a full season last year. But, in a football town like Ironton, the players and the community both need each other and we missed that last year. My neighbor was devastated because she told me she has had season tickets for over 50 years and had to watch all the games online this year. Hopefully, it’s all normal this season.
