Very consistent thrower and is also a threat to pull the ball down and run at anytime. A true leader. His combo skill set is exactly what many offensive coordinators are searching for.

A true thrower. He stands tall in the pocket and delivers a very accurate and catchable ball. He will move around and find the throwing lane. Also a standout on the baseball diamond.
