Pass Happy With Auburn Camp Performance

A talented young football prospect talks about camping with the Auburn Tigers.

Columbus, Ga.--Carver High's talented young quarterback is too young to drive, but he sure can pass.

Class of 2016 prospect Jawon Pass was impressive at Auburn's July one-day football camp that attracted around 600 players.

Standing six-foot-five and weighing 205 pounds, the quarterback is expected to be a standout performer this fall at Carver even though he is just 15 years old and won turn 16 until next March.

"The camp was good and I learned a lot of new things and got better," he said. "It helped me a lot to come to the camp."

On his trip to Auburn the quarterback saw a familiar face, Dell McGee, who earlier this year left his position as head coach of the Carver football team to take an administrative position on Coach Gus Malzahn's staff.

"I talked to Coach McGee and he said they like me a lot and they are getting ready to offer me soon," says the quarterback, who notes that he has scholarship offers from Clemson, North Carolina and Mississippi State.

Last season Pass played as a reserve, but this year he heads into the season as Carver's starting quarterback.

Asked what he considers his strength as a quarterback, Pass says, "I have a strong arm and I can run the ball so I am a dual threat."

He says as he prepares for the 2013 season he has been working on his mechanics, something that will give him chance to prosper as a sophomore who on Friday nights will be facing defensive opponents who older and more experienced than he is.
