Birmingham QB Making Up for Lost Time
Ben Craft profile "Things are going great for us," said Ben of his team's success this season. "We're 9-1 overall and 7-0 in our region. "We are having a great year on offense and our defense is really good too. "Probably the biggest thing we have going for us this year is that we have so much diversity on offense. We can run the ball really well and we throw it around pretty good too." Craft is thrilled to be back on the playing field after sitting out last season due to transfer rules. "I didn't get to play last season because I transferred from a public school to a private school," said Ben. "I am just happy to be playing again. It's been a lot of fun being back out there." The talented signal caller is making those around him pretty happy as well. Craft used his time away from the game to sharpen his skills and those efforts are paying off in a big way. "I am happy with how I have been able to limit turnovers this season," said Ben. "I am completing about 67% of my passes this year too." With the wins and solid stats, Craft is putting together the type of junior season he needs to get his name firmly on the recruiting radar of college programs. "I really want to find a school that wants me to come in and contribute," said Ben. "I want to play for good coaches at a place that is just the right fit for me. "Academics are real important to me and I want to play for a good program where I can get better as a player." As the junior days of late winter and the practices of early spring roll around, Craft will be a name of interest to several college programs. The 6-2, 205 pounder is open to all comers at this point. "I really like the SEC, ACC and Big 12 schools," said Craft. "I am really open to any team right now though. "I would like to go to school somewhere kind of close to home, but I am looking for the right fit for me wherever it is. "I just want to play ball."
