Bootleg Video: McLeod Bethel-Thompson

The Bay Area has produced standout quarterbacks in recent years, from the Peninsula to the South Bay to the East Bay. But the city of San Francisco typically lags in Division I football talent. That leaves QB McLeod Bethel-Thompson one of the most intriguing prospects in this 2006 class. We had him at the Combine last Sunday and bring you extensive footage of his work and his story.

Bethel-Thompson is the biggest name in Bay Area football you hadn't heard before last week, and that is due in part to his location and experience.  The Balboa High School slinger has played organized football for just two years, and he happens to play in a city that is seldom given respect in the metropolitan gridiron landscape.  We were excited to have him at the All-American Combine in Berkeley last Sunday for his first ever football combine, which allows us to be the first on the planet to bring you workout footage of the 6'4" signal caller, who was in the top three at his position.

Here are clips of him performing the breadth of quarterback drills at the combine, as well as some of his throws in the one-on-one work.  Also enjoy an extensive three-part interview with Bethel-Thompson, bringing you his athletic background, camp reactions and recruiting outlook.
