When Will Weatherford Report to Tally?

With only two scholarship quarterbacks on the Florida State roster, it was important to sign a couple of big-time quarterbacks in the class of 2004. That's exactly what the Seminoles did in signing two All-Americans in Xavier Lee and Drew Weatherford. Starting quarterback Chris Rix's backup Sophomore Wyatt Sexton won't be able to throw for about another month or so. When will the freshman studs arrive to help carry the throwing load?

"I arrive in Tallahassee on June 26th but won't take part in workouts until the 28th because of the dead period," Land O Lakes standout quarterback Drew Weatherford said.

"Right now I'm working out in a speed camp down here," he said. "Paul Irons is down here attending the same speed camp and he's staying at my house."

With Florida State's starting tight end Paul Irons near by it's been a real benefit for the Class 4A Player of the Year.

"We've been going over Florida State's playbook together," Weatherford said. "It's really helped me out. I'm also throwing with Paul and a former wide receiver at Land O Lakes named Logan Payne. He's going to be a sophomore at Minnesota this year."

Weatherford led his team to their first undefeated season in school history by passing for 2,645 yards, 39 touchdown passes and only six interceptions as a junior. He did that while playing with torn cartilage in his knee all year long.

As a senior he threw for over 2,000 yards and 20 scores while leading his team into the playoffs.
Incoming freshman Kenny O'Neal said it best about Weatherford.
"Quarterback Drew Weatherford is all about football and I like that," O'Neal said. "That boy has a strong arm."

Weatherford will wear the No. 11 jersey for the Seminoles. The same jersey his good friend Casey Weldon wore during his playing days in the Garnet & Gold.
