Sophomore QB Impressing In Ohio

Dayton Chaminade Julienne quarterback Jacob Harrison turned heads last year as a freshman starter, and he is off to a great start this season. Harrison is a top 2016 quarterback prospect in Ohio.

Jacob Harrison made quite an impression last year as a freshman quarterback at Dayton Chaminade Julienne. He threw for over 800 yards and rushed for more than 400 yards.

Harrison, 6-foot-1, 180-pounds, is off to a flying start to his sophomore season and he is a quarterback prospect of note in Ohio for the class of 2016.

In leading his team to two victories, Harrison is completing 70% of his passes. He has already thrown for nearly 600 yards, with five touchdown tosses. He has also ran for 175 yards and scored five times on the ground.

"My play this year has been so much better, and I worked very hard to improve my accuracy, footwork and arm strength in the off-season," Harrison stated. "Our team is playing great and that makes my job a lot easier. The game has really slowed down for me, and I'm out there going through my reads and doing what my coaches want."

"Most of the time I know where I'm going with the ball before it's even snapped," he added. "My receivers and I are all on the same page and we are playing at a high level. I'm still working on my footwork and my release, because I'm always trying to get better."

Although only a sophomore, Harrison is starting to draw college recruiting interest from different programs.

"I definitely want to play college football some day, and I've been invited to attend games from a few schools," Harrison said. "I will be going to Illinois on October 19th for their game with Wisconsin, and I'm very excited about that. I used to live in Chicago, so that's pretty cool."

"I would be interested in any school that fits my playing style and wants me the most," he stressed. "I've also been invited to games at Ball State and Akron."
