Kessler Looks To Be Good Role Model
San Antonio, TX - Being asked for an autograph is not a new thing for USC commitment Cody Kessler. While so many players in this week's Army All-American game have never been asked for their signature, it's become a part of life for the 4-star quarterback. "I get asked a lot actually (laughter). In Bakersfield there is a lot of publicity for me in a small town. A lot of people will come up and ask," said Kessler while signing autographs after Tuesday afternoon's west squad practice. "Little kids come up to me after the high school games and ask me which is a pretty cool experience. I do what I can." A humble teenager, it wasn't just a few kids asking for Kessler's attention after games this season. The All-American would have the potential to sign over 100 autographs a night. "I didn't ask that many guys growing up for their autographs. I didn't go to many games, but I know that if I would have went I would have done the same thing," said Kessler. "It's cool because so many kids look up to you. They look at you as a leader and a role model. They sort of fall by example. I try my hardest to set a good example. It's just like my little brother, he's eleven and he's doing everything I do. I have to set a good example for all these kids that watch me." So has the future Trojan established more than one signature? "We got here and I had to sign like 400 autographs on this little training card for them to hand out. When we first started it was a pretty nice signature, towards the end, we couldn't read some (laughter)," said Kessler. "When I try to do it for kids, I look to do it nice. I want them to be able to read my name."
