Looking for Football & Academics

Connor Wynn

San Marcos (Calif.) Mission Hills quarterback Connor Wynn led his team to their fifth win of the season Friday night and although quiet on offers, he says he's looking for a school with a solid academic program...

Though much hasn't been said of San Marcos (Calif.) Mission Hills quarterback Connor Wynn and college offers, the quarterback is still mum on whom he's been hearing from.

"I've been talking to several Pac-12 schools," Wynn said. "A couple Mountain West schools too as well."

He said he's been receiving phone calls and messages from these schools and plans on publicizing his offers and taking officials in the coming weeks.

Wynn said academics will be a determining factor in finalizing his decision on picking a school.

"I want to just find the right fit for me," Wynn said. "Obviously education is important to me. After hearing from my brother, I learned from him that football isn't a guarantee for life."

Wynn's brother Jordan played quarterback at Oceanside and then for Utah from 2009-2012. After an impressive freshman season, Jordan's Utah career was plagued by injuries and Wynn was forced to retire from football in September 2012.

"I've got to be prepared for life so whoever has the best education program for me is where I'll be," Connor said.

In the first five games of the 2013 season, Mission Hills outscored its opponents 164-34 and continued its undefeated streak with a 30-6 win over Oceanside. The win was the first varsity victory the Grizzlies have had over the Pirates in the school's history. Wynn's sole touchdown came on a 17-yard pass to wide receiver senior Scott Higgins.

"I feel like as an offense we played well," Wynn said. "We executed our game plan perfectly and defense stepped it up amazingly. Dechaun Holiday had a pick six, we caused turnovers, credit goes to the whole team for this one."
