David Blough, a 6-foot-1, 190-pound quarterback from Carrollton (Texas) Creekview High considered himself lucky to be included to The Opening roster.
Then he went out and proved that he had the skill set to be mentioned amongst the best of the best, being named by Trent Dilfer and his Elite 11 staff to have the 6th best performance overall.
"This football environment does not get any better," Blough expressed. "You have a great football staff and are surrounded by great players. I just got to play on live television for the first time in many of our careers. It is football heaven for us."
"I think I have done really well about keeping my composure and knowing a lot of what is going on. Knowing what I have been doing good and what I have been doing bad. One of my coaches told me to make big plays after critical errors. If you have a three and out you have to make sure you focus in and take it down the next drive."
Blough has made commitment to Purdue and he is excited about his commitment and the program there.
"They were the first offer," Blough confirmed when asked if loyalty played a factor in his decision making process. "They felt like home and I feel like they are going to take care of me." Coach (John) Shoop has coached some great players.
The coaching staff also played a huge factor.
"Coach (Darell) Hazell just won 11 games at Kent State and he worked with Coach (Jim) Tressel at Ohio State and that is just a program I want to be a part of because of that staff.
"I am looking forward to it and competing with Danny (Etling) and Austin Appleby as well."
Everywhere he went in on the Nike Campus Headquarters you would find him sporting his Purdue cap and singing the school's praises.
"We are trying to get this class going," Blough exclaimed!
Blough is currently rated as the No. 38 quarterback in the country.
