Dausin ready to make name for himself

At 6-foot-3, 185 pounds, Rex Dausin has the body type and arm to play at the next level. Now, it's all about getting his name, stats, and film out there.

Filled with youth and inexperience, Earl Warren HS (TX) finished the 2009 season with a 2-8 record. Fast forward to today and that inexperience is junior and seniors, making the 2010 season a lot smoother. The Cougars are 4-3 and have two more games before their postseason begins.

The man that makes this offense go is 2012 QB Rex Dausin. At 6-foot-3, 185 pounds, Dausin has the body type and arm to play at the next level. Now, it's all about getting his name, stats, and film out there.

"Everything is coming together now. We are really starting to really spread the ball around and I love it. I'm just sitting in the pocket throwing it around," said Dausin to Scout.com. "I think that I'm doing pretty well. I have a lot of area to improve on, but hopefully I can keep helping the team with my play."

The junior quarterback has thrown for nearly 1500 yards this season with a 59% completion rate. He's thrown for a total of 15 touchdowns in just seven games.

"The main thing was for my junior year to go to the playoffs and get far in the playoffs. Individually, I wanted to throw for over 2000 yards and help my team win. I also wanted to get my name out there in front of people," said Dausin. "Right now I'm getting interest from Rutgers and Iowa State. Those are the big two schools."

Dausin is looking for a coaching staff that will make him feel wanted and would like to stay close to home, even if it's outside the state.

"Favorite, I don't know? I like what TCU is doing. OSU would be really nice as well. I like the spread attack," said the junior.

When Scout.com evaluated Rausin in the summer, he was labeled as a quarterback with a nice arm, great touch, and nice size. But, his mobility was an area needing work and the junior took the advice.

"I actually read my profile this summer and thought I really need to work on this and get better as well. So it was an area that I spent a lot of time on. I think I have gotten better," said Rausin. "I'm also a tennis player, so it really helps my agility and quickness. I feel my feet are good, but I'm going to keep trying to improve my forty time, which is about a 4.8."
