Windmiller ready for off-season combines

Since his season ended Nov. 4, Mill Valley (KS) High quarterback Skyler Windmiller has been getting a little much-needed rest and relaxation. Things are about to pick up again, however, as the strong-armed signal-caller prepares to show his stuff at a pair of winter combines.

Since his season ended Nov. 4, Mill Valley (KS) High quarterback Skyler Windmiller has been getting a little much-needed rest and relaxation.

Of course, R&R to a Division One-caliber athlete is a little different than the variety enjoyed by the average Joe. For Windmiller, it involves a daily workout regimen and keeping his arm loose during the occasional session with a quarterback coach.

Things are about to pick up, however, as the 6-foot-2, 180-pound junior gunslinger prepares to show his stuff at a pair of winter combines. First up, it's the Semper Fidelis Bowl "Proving Ground" on Jan. 2 at Chase Field in Phoenix. From there it's on to San Antonio for the prestigious Army All-American National Combine, held Jan. 6 at the Alamodome.

Both events feature some of the top high school talent in the country, and are invitation-only - so Windmiller was understandably pumped to be included in both.

The Army combine is of particular interest, however, as it marks the first step toward fulfilling a long-held dream.

"I'd love to play in the Army (All-American) game," Windmiller said. "I've been watching it since I was in middle school."

On the recruiting front, he's being courted by a number of area D-1 schools. He has begun the process of distributing his junior highlight tape, and recently received a favorable response from the coaches at Iowa.

"They said after seeing it they bumped me up to a top prospect," Windmiller said. "So that was kind of cool."

As a junior in 2011, he helped the Jaguars to a 7-3 record, throwing for 2,128 yards and 25 touchdowns.
