Zenelovic Enjoys Working with Coach Lewis

Class of 2018 quarterback Braeden Zenelovic is on the Syracuse radar.

Class of 2018 Ontario Center (N.Y.) Wayne quarterback Braeden Zenelovic was a standout at Syracuse on June 19th. He did not get an offer, but he is firmly on the Orange radar going forward. 

"He (Syracuse offensive coordinator Sean Lewis) did say that he takes time to evaluate his quarterbacks and he wanted to wait to really get into anything until my junior year," Zenelovic said. "He told me to make a highlight tape for the beginning of the season so he could see it and decide from there what he thought.

"He also said that he waited until after Tommy DeVito's junior season to offer because the position is so valuable in a team's success. He wants to make sure he is getting the right guys to make his team successful, which is something I respect."

Overall, Zenelovic thought he performed well at the camp in front of coach Lewis. In fact, he sized himself up against the Syracuse quarterback commit DeVito, and thinks he held his own. 

"I enjoyed the camp a lot," Zenelovic said. "I was able to size up against Tommy and see how I compared. I thought I did a very good job and performed very well. I just think there were times I should've gotten the ball out of my hands early rather than a half a second to a second later.

"It was great to finally work with (coach lewis). I enjoyed his enthusiasm and his willingness to coach and make players better. He continued to stress the importance of trusting the receivers and getting the ball out of my hands fast and on time. It's the difference between a completion and incompletion at the college level."

Even without an offer, the 6-foot-4 quarterback has a lot of interest in Syracuse. He looks forward to building a relationship with the coaches going forward. 

"Syracuse is a great school and they are definitely a school I'd attend if I was blessed enough to receive the opportunity," Zenelovic said. "Coach Lewis made me more interested in the school without a doubt."

Zenelovic's summer is not just limited to a camp at Syracuse. He has attended or will be attending camps at Michigan, UMass, Maryland, Villanova, New Hampshire, Temple and others.
