Since the first of the year Messiah deWeaver has worked hard for the next three to four months of his football career.
Already a pledge to Michigan State, deWeaver has worked on getting bigger, stronger and faster along with his overall quarterback skills.
This past week the future Spartan and his Huber Heights (Ohio) Wayne teammates have held two scrimmages with more to come as the kickoff of his senior season is just a couple of weeks away.
Spartan Digest spoke with deWeaver during a break at his most recent scrimmage about how things are going, the excitement he has inside as his senior season nears and the latest on his work to secure one big target still on the board for the Spartans 2016 class.
ON THE FIELD
What did Spartan Digest see of deWeaver on the field? Physically deWeaver has worked hard to get bigger and stronger. While not a speedster, deWeaver can move the pocket better now than what he could a year ago. The arm strength is there and we're seeing him run an offense not just throw the ball up hoping someone catches it.
During the scrimmage snaps we saw deWeaver on two separate drives guide his team down the field with his athletic ability and leadership abilities. This is the first time we've felt deWeaver has been really asked to understand a total offense and not just a select number of plays. The scrimmage was Cincinnati Colerain, one of the top programs in Southwest Ohio. Spartan Digest looks forward to seeing deWeaver in live game action in Week Two of the Ohio season when Wayne plays Cincinnati Moeller on national television.
