As a junior, Scott Saunders was 205-296 passing with a 69.3 completion rate. He threw for 3,301 yards and 26 touchdowns. Out of 21 punts, he dropped eight within the opponents' 20 and averaged 40.76 per. On PAT's, he was 58-61 and 3-3 on field goals with a long of 38. Saunders was named first team all-league and CIF at quarterback. "I have a great knowledge of the game," he says. "I know defenses well and I can break them down pre-snap and post-snap. I am a field general out there."
Schools are looking at him as a quarterback and free saftey. With his diminutive size for signal caller, defense is most likely where his future lies. "I can play anything; quarterback, safety, kicker or punter."
Saunders enjoyed his visit to Boulder. "I really liked the academic support they had there. I think they run a real clean house. They have good athletes and good people involved with that program."
Saunders carries a 4.75 core GPA on a 4.0 scale as he takes all honors courses. He scored a 1200 on his SAT and will take it again in June. The athlete is unsure of what he will major in.
