Bell Working Hard In Camps

Live Oaks QB David Bell didn't put up huge numbers in a run oriented offense, but he has all the intangibles of a solid Division I prospect.

David Bell has caught the eyes of several quarterback coaches at football camps this summer. The "6-2", 205-pound Bell has the size and arm that many college quarterback coaches are looking for in a prospect. David has made the rounds to camps at Arkansas State, Mississippi State, Louisiana, Southeastern Louisiana, Ouachita Baptist and Elite 11 camp in Las Vegas. Bell attended Louisiana's Ragin'Cajun Prospect Camp of June 6th and followed up with a stop at Arkansas State.

"I wanted to attend camps at programs that I'm interested in," said Bell. "We sent out video to around fifty schools and as I attended the camps the coaches want to see more video. I'm thinking about possibly playing out of state, but UL is a program I'm interested in."

Bell performed well enough in the passing drills that he was one of three quarterbacks asked to remain after camp to workout with quarterback coach Jorge Munoz.

"Coach Munoz asked several of us to stay after camp and work with a few wide receivers outside," David stated. "I thought I threw the ball well in the seven-on-seven drills and the individual drill with the wide receivers. Coach Munoz said he would stay in touch and wanted to look at some game video from the first few games this season."

David Bell was also happy with his performance at Arkansas State and the interest he received from the staff after camp.

"I really enjoyed the Arkansas State camp," said Bell. "After camp, I sat down with Coach Harris and watched film of their offense. Coach Harris has called me every week since the camp and continues to express their interest in me as a recruit."

David also expressed his excitement in attending the Elite 11 camp in Las Vegas, Nevada.

"It was a great opportunity to go out there and compete against some of the best athletes in the country," David exclaimed. "I enjoyed competing and comparing myself to some of the athletes, it was a great experience."

Bell scored an 18 on his first ACT test and completed the 2008 year with a 3.0 GPA.
