Sawyer off to big start in 2013

FW All Saints quarterback and TCU commit Foster Sawyer is off to a big start through two games.

TCU commit, Foster Sawyer of All-Saints, showed why he is considered one of the top signal callers in the country as he led his Saints teammates to a 64-7 victory over Carter-Riverside Friday night. On the night, Sawyer completed 13-of-18 passes for 232 yards and 5 touchdowns; all in just one half.

Through just six quarters of action in 2013, Sawyer has completed 31-of-41 passes for 572 yards with 10 touchdowns and 0 interceptions.

He had little trouble dissecting the Eagles secondary on Friday.

"We just focused on, it doesn't matter who we play, we just come out and treat it like a championship game" said Sawyer. "What we always work on is fast tempo and when that whistle blows, we should be down and ready to snap the ball."

"We kind of started off a little slow, the refs threw a couple of flags and it was kind of hard to get into a rhythm" he said. "I felt like later on , we got into our Nascar, which is our super fast set and I was proud of our guys for going tempo and for the most part, not playing down to their level."

With a gross mismatch at every position on the field, All-Saints took it to the Carter-Riverside Eagles to the tune of 57-0 at halftime. That was more than enough to prove that the Saints wouldn't even be remotely challenged on the night. Sawyer spoke about taking the win in stride and preparing for their next opponent.

"We can always get better in all areas so we'll be back tomorrow morning ready to work, I promise you." said Sawyer. "I don't plan on stopping anytime soon (Scoring 67 points per game on average)."

As has been the case in previous interviews, Sawyer refuses to talk about himself but instead, pumps up his Saint's teammates like a true leader should.

"You know, Kendall Adams, Blaze Moorehead and the rest of the guys have all stepped up" said Sawyer. "Charlie (Reid) was a freak and of course I'm going to miss him but at the same time, they don't know who we're going to throw now and I'm just Fortunate to have so many weapons to throw to."

Switching gears to discuss his commitment to TCU, Sawyer talked about his visit to se TCU play LSU at Cowboy's Stadium and the fact that despite the loss, he was very proud of his future teammates.

"I was proud of TCU and Coach Patterson and what they did" he said. "LSU is a great team and much respect to the SEC schools, but TCU is tight up there with them."

"I feel like Boykin did a good job, Casey did a good job for his first game" he said. "I feel like this might even push them to go on and win the Big 12."

"I have all the confidence in the world for Coach Patterson and what they'll do and my prediction is they'll win it (Big 12) honestly."

With the Frogs putting up a big fight in front of over 80,000 fans, Sawyer says, the game left a lasting impression on him.

"It was crazy there, I mean, I've been to a lot of TCU games, but nothing like that" he said. "IT was just a whole other level."

"I got there at three with my brothers and stuff and I was just so excited just to see the kickoff" he said . "You know, I didn't care if TCU blew them out or if they got blown out, I just knew it was going to be a great game and it's only going to get better from here."

"With TCU being in the Big 12, even though they're the new guy on the block, I think they really handled that game well."

On the recruiting front, Sawyer has continued to recruit for the Frogs but is more focused on his senior season.

"I'm focused on a few guys but when we got Ty Barrett, that was like a Christmas present to me because linemen are hard to find" he said. "I'm going to have to follow up with Braden Smith and talk to him again because he's coming up here again pretty soon."

"I want to talk to all these guys and they're all good guys but it's football season right now" said Sawyer. "I'll have to get back on Twitter."
