There was no messing around in the off-season for La Canada (Calif.) St. Francis quarterback Jared Lebowitz. He's spent the past few months sharpening his throwing motion, and is now eager to showcase his talent at college camps this summer.

"Everyone has been saying they are excited to see what I can do in camps. I had a big, loopy motion last season and I've really worked hard with my quarterback coach to clean that up, so the ball is coming off quicker and harder. That's what I want to show at the camps and hopefully they'll see how hard I've been working and how I can adapt to what they want to do," he said.

The 6'4", 200 lb. signal-caller, who credits his school's spring weight program in his gaining fifteen pounds since season, has been receiving interest from a number of programs.

"Colleges have been coming by the school almost every day, and I've signed up for camps. The schools expressing the most interest are San Jose State, Nevada, Maryland, Duke, Virginia, Fresno State, and San Diego. We'll see what happens after camp season," he said.

Lebowitz, who names arm strength and mobility as two of his greatest strengths at the position, originally hails from Vermont and would welcome the idea of heading back East to play college ball, but has also adapted to playing in West Coast weather.

"I would go anywhere that took me, but if I had options, I'd like to play on the West Coast or East Coast. I can play in the snow and the rain because that's what I was raised in, but I've learned to play in the heat, too," he said.

In addition to exploring his recruiting options, the quarterback is also focusing on showcasing leadership and working towards a successful senior season.

"I'm working on my leadership and trying to lead by example, just getting the team ready for next year. Every quarterback has to believe he's the best out there; you have to believe that, because you're the one instilling confidence in your teammates," he said.
