Nick Foles talks with

Nick Foles, Austin Westlake's talented quarterback, had shoulder surgery in January 14, 2007 in Birmingham, Ala., to repair a torn labrum. Despite playing with the injury for much of this past season, he was named the American-Statesman's Central Texas Player of the Year after passing for 3,266 yards and 32 touchdowns.

Nick Foles has gone through a lot over the last few weeks. A shoulder surgery to repair a torn labrum, a de-commitment from Arizona State, and handling his anticipated return to the football field. Foles took the time to talk with

"As far as signing day, I won't be signing tomorrow. A lot of teams have shown interest, but I am going to see what my options are."

Foles explained that several teams have shown interest including Baylor.

"In a week or two, I will hopefully have an answer. I am just going to sit down with my family and see what my options are."

There is no doubt that Foles is a rare breed. Standing 6-5, he is able to see over the line and showed great arm strength this past season. His injury may keep Foles out for the short-term, but Foles expects to be ready by next season. As for what he brings to the field?

"I think I am a leader on the field. I want the ball in my hands. I just play with my heart."
