Watkinsville (Ga.) Oconee County quarterback Zeb Noland was recently chosen as the Valdosta, 2016 quarterback MVP. The 6-foot-2 and 205-pound Noland was proud of his performance at the camp.
"I was the camp MVP for all of the quarterbacks," Noland said. "I went to camp the other weekend. I was going to go to the Adidas camp in Atlanta, but we decided to go to the Valdosta camp instead."
It turns out that decision was a good one for Noland. Coming away with the MVP award is indicative of that. It's also clear that Noland is a player and he says that the hard work is paying off.
"I had a good summer and I had confidence coming into the season. That confidence faded when not a lot of schools showed interest.
"After Thanksgiving I sat down and talked with my dad. I told him that if the offers are not going to come in then I will out and work and get them to come in."
While the offers haven't found their way to Noland yet the interest is coming in from many schools. One of those schools will host him and a teammate next month when there is a free weekend.
"We are going to visit Nebraska on March 27th through the 29th," Noland said. "I am not sure if that's a weekend for Nebraska's junior day, but I know that they are having spring practices. It's also a weekend that Jaleel Laguins doesn't have track and I don't have 7-on-7."
