Dublin Coffman (OH) quarterback James Walsh blew up his junior season. The senior committed to Ohio during the summer and spent the rest of his off-season getting stronger.
"I've been gaining weight and strength so that I can run the ball a lot more. I've gained 15 pounds since last season and it's helped me take hits and run more effectively."
Walsh says he's ready to get his final high school season underway.
"I'm excited about the atmosphere of Friday nights and playing with all of my friends who I've been playing with since we were little for the last time."
As for his future, the QB plans on making several trips to see his future team in person.
"I'll be going to a lot of home games and probably their game at Penn State. I'll also take an official visit. Maybe I'll try and plan out a weekend with other commits."
Walsh is optimistic about how the Bobcats will do this season.
"I really think they'll win at least 10 games. I can't wait to watch them play Penn State because I think we can go there and beat them. We have an awesome quarterback in Tettleton and Coach Solich always has strong team there."
For now Walsh is focusing on enjoying his senior year, but says Ohio is never far from his mind.
"It's odd because I've never played for any other coaches or with any other kids, but I' really excited too. I already know multiple commits to OU pretty well and I love the university. And it's not too far from home so even though it's a long time away from now I'm really excited about it."
