Alton Voss: Video & Interview

Get your first look at Gulf High School quarterback Alton Voss. He talks with USFnation.com about his plans for the summer, his strengths as a quarterback and what he likes about the Bulls. Read on for the entire story.

Alton Voss is one of the top QB prospects in the Tampa Bay Area. Standing at 6-foot-2 and ½, Voss will be a three-year varsity starter in 2006. He was named all-league as a junior after passing for 1,300 yards and rushing for 1,100 yards. Alton scored 13 touchdowns on the ground and he had 13 passing touchdowns as well. He has a powerful arm and is just as much a threat to run for a score as he is passing for one.

This summer will be very important for the soon-to-be senior, there will be a lot of eyes watching to see if he can jump into that elite category of the '07 class. Voss isn't quite sure of all his plans, but he does know he will be attending a couple camps this summer.

"I'm going to the Alabama camp, the USF one day camp and possibly to NC State for their camp."

Voss credits his early success to his arm strength and ability to not only run but break tackles as well. However he does admit that this summer he will be working to improve on his throwing mechanics and size.

"This summer I need to work on my drop step, reading defenses and just lifting and getting in shape."

As for making a decision on a college, Voss admits that South Florida has made an early impression on him.

"I like that it's close to home and that they are on the up-swing as a program." Adding, "I didn't have a chance to go to a game last year, but I still followed them pretty closely. I'm looking forward to going to some games next year."

The next couple months will be full of camps and combines where Voss will be looking to make a name for himself. As of now he looks to be in the top 10 at his position, but I know from talking with him that he wants to be #1.

Voss has all the tools to be a top QB, take a look at his highlights:
