Nicknamed "Stump," this Gilmer quarterback was sensational as a sophomore in 2007 helping lead Gilmer High School to a 14-1 record and a Class 3A State Runner-Up finish. He recently attended Baylor's football camp in Waco, and turned out a stellar performance. With offers from Kansas State and Tulsa, Godfrey showed why he is begining to pick up steam as far as recruiting goes. After the camp, Godfrey told us his thoughts.

How he thought his camp went today:

"It went well. Got out here and threw it around and competed."

What he got out of today's camp"

"Mechanics. You always have to get those down when you come to a camp. When you go to that school, you got to make sure you are hrowing how they want you to throw the ball. That is what you got to get down first."

What he did that maybe opened some eyes:

"I just came out and was being myself. I didn't try to do too much. I am just doing my job."

Plans for off-season:

"I am just lifting weights and getting better."

Plans for the future other than winning a State Championship:

"Just for anybody who comes out and watches, to say, 'He played the game right. And he lead his team to victory."

OUR TAKE

Godfrey may throw with the greatest velocity that we have seen so far this camp season. He throws a very catchable ball, and accuracy is not an issue. His ability to roll either direction and fire is a strength. Standing 6'0" may be a disadvantage, but his skills as a passes make up for that in many regards.
