Junior QB Drawing Looks

Cuyahoga Falls Walsh Jesuit is in the playoff hunt this year in Ohio, and junior quarterback Pat Ford is one of the main reasons. Ford is also drawing looks from college recruiters.

Walsh Jesuit quarterback Pat Ford is one of the top 2015 signal callers in Ohio, and he is having another strong year for the Warriors.

Ford, 6-foot-5, 205-pounds, is a pocket passer but he does have the ability to move out of trouble. A starter since his sophomore season, Ford is hearing from several college programs.

"I was at Penn State last week for their game with Michigan, and that was awesome and a lot of fun," Ford stated. "I've also been to games at Toledo and Kent State this year. This was my first Big Ten game, and I like Penn State a lot."

"Penn State came in to my school last spring to see me, and I went to their summer camp," he continued. "I love everything about the school, and they told they like what they see. They told me to finish my season strong, and they would be back in the spring."

"I will be going to Indiana in two weeks to see them play, and they've been in contact a lot," Ford said. "I will also be going to Illinois and Northwestern this year, and I've been talking to those schools also."

After impressing last year, Ford has taken the next step in his development. His improvement is noticeable and he is working to get even better.

"I think I've played really well this year and I'm running the ball a lot more this year," he explained. "I think I'm showing people I can run the football and our offense is much better than last year."

"My completion percentage has gone way up this year," Ford continued. "That was something I worked on in the off-season, being more accurate throwing the ball and avoiding the turnovers. I'm also working on footwork, which will really help me."
