Spring break meant more football for Wittek

USC redshirt sophomore quarterback Max Wittek chose to forego a typical spring vacation for most college students to spend more time working on his game.

LOS ANGELES, Calif. — USC returned from spring break on Monday and while much of the Trojans football team took a needed vacation from football, redshirt sophomore quarterback Max Wittek decided to stick to training.

Wittek spent his break in San Diego training with quarterbacks coach George Whitfield Jr. "That was a good experience," Wittek said after practice Tuesday.

Among the notable quarterbacks Wittek worked out with included Clemson's Tajh Boyd and Cincinnati's Munchie Legaux. "It was good to spend time with those guys," Wittek explained, "pick up little pieces of [information] and wisdom they have from their school."

Tahj had a lot of wisdom to share with me, so I was impressed with him as a human and as a player."

Wittek said the time spent in San Diego showed Whitfield he can "definitely throw the ball," but that he needs to become more comfortable in game situations.

Wittek, who started the final two games of the Trojans 2012 after Matt Barkley suffered a season ending injury, is competing for the starting job with redshirt sophomore Cody Kessler and freshman Max Browne this spring.
