How long have you been playing football?
Abram: I didn’t start playing until 8th grade, and didn’t start playing QB until my freshman year of high school. I ran track and played soccer, and in 8th grade I picked up a football and loved it. Those other sports really helped my work ethic and helped me throughout the process of learning football, in my opinion.
How would you describe your role on the team last season?
A: For the first three weeks, I was the wildcat quarterback, by week 4 I became the varsity starter. My job to win games with my feet and my arm, and make sure to protect the ball.
Will you talk about the leadership aspect that comes with being a quarterback?
A: I believe, as a Quarterback, you’re the coach on the field. You control how the game goes and the pace of the game. As a leader of the team, you gotta keep your team motived and focued on the game.
What would you say is your biggest strength?
A: My biggest strength is my toughness, I love to compete and I never feel like my team is out of the game. I’m not afraid of contact and will stay in the pocket and deliver while taking a hit if need be.
What do you need to improve on the most to make sure you’re successful at the next level?
A: I think I need to improve on my passing anticipation, if I can anticipate my throws earlier I can make it easier on my receivers and harder on the defense. I need to just keep repping it and keep studying film.
Who would you compare yourself to, in college or the NFL?
A: I would compare myself to Tim Tebow while he was at University of Florida, I think I can make plays with my arm and make plays outside the pocket, our work ethics and toughness were similar and I strive to be like him. He also is a very motivational leader, which is something else I strive for.
What is your goal for this upcoming season with Parkview Baptist?
A: My goal is, obviously, to win state, but I want the team to come together and for everyone to do their job, I believe we’re a dangerous team that can make a lot of plays when that happens.
What are you going to bring to the college team that recruits you?
A: Most importantly, I would bring leadership, I want to see our team win and know we need to play as one, I’ll bring playmaking ability and can help make big plays out of broken plays.
