Bower, Another College Prototype Quarterback

If you were 6-3 tall, weighed 217 pounds, were capable of running a 4.8-second forty-yard dash and a 4.6-second shuttle and could complete 18 repetitions of 185 pounds on the bench press, you might think you have a shot at playing college football.

Throw in the fact that you play quarterback and have received scholarship offers from BYU, Boise State, Idaho State, Oregon State, Utah State, and Utah, you are most assuredly going to get the chance.

Meet Jake Bower from Meridian High School in Meridian, Idaho. Bowler traveled all the way to Eugene, Oregon to attend the Nike Football Camp on June 14 and showed he was made of the right stuff.

In addition to the schools that have offered, Bower is also interested in Purdue and Oregon. He wants to attend a school with a law school and plans to do his undergraduate work in history. He carries a 3.4-point grade average and has previously scored 19 points on the ACT as a junior. Whichever school is fortunate enough to garner Bower's services it will also have to wait for him to complete his two-year LDS mission directly out of high school.

Bower will be attending Bob Johnson's football camp later this summer. From his performance there and at the recent Eugene Nike camp, he his hoping he will be invited to the Elite 11 camp also hosted by Johnson.
