Bridgford On Target Day 1

The Elite 11 week got off to an excellent start for Cal-bound Mission Viejo Allan Bridgford as the Diablo signal-caller was named Most Accurate Passer in day 1 in the annual gathering of top quarterbacks in the nation's high school ranks.

"We throw through a target that's around receiver-height, simulating game receiving conditions,: said Bridgford. "They judge us on our footwork and if it's wrong, they don't count the pass if you hit the target. We did footwork drills, good ball-bad ball drills where he have to decide the right receiver to throw to."

"You're playing with the cream of the crop out there," said Bridgford. They're all really good. It brings out the best in you.

Bridgford joined Phoebus HS (Hampton, VA) QB Tajh Boyd, Los Osos HS (Rancho Cucamonga, CA) QB Richard Brehaut, Meade HS (Ft. Meade, MD) QB Raymond Cotton, Lake Travis HS (Austin, TX) QB Garrett Gilbert (also son of former Cal QB Gale Gilbert), Midland (Midland, MI) HS QB Andrew Maxwell, St. Paul's HS (Mobile, Ala) QB A.J. McCarron, Oconee County HS (Watkinsville, GA) QB Zach Mettenberger, Plant HS (Tampa, FL) Aaron Murray, West Springfield (Lorton, VA) QB Bryn Renner, Cardinal O'Hara (Springfield, PA) QB Tom Savage and Miramar (Miramar, FL) QB Eugene Smith in the 2008 Elite 11 class.
