Drew is just great at everything he does on the football field. He has all of the skills needed in a great tailback, and at 5'8 and 195 pounds, he packs a surprising punch. On a De La Salle squad that pounds the ball down their opponent's throats, he is the cornerstone, "I can run up the middle and I have the speed to get around corners or get the corner on people," he explained. "Then when I go one on one with the cornerback or safety, I can run them over or shake them. A lot of people tell me that since I can catch, I can play receiver too." Drew also stars at safety for the Spartans.
De La Salle has been dominating as usual this year, and Drew has been putting up some big numbers in support, "It's been going great," he said. "I've rushed for 1,052 yards on 102 carries in 9 games, because I missed a game. So, that's going pretty well. As a team, we're doing excellent.

A pair of Trojan coaches have also been a positive force, "Coach Davis and Coach Carroll," he said. "I like them a lot. They're nice guys. I like to talk to them. Coach Carroll, he talked to me about the season. He said he'd like me to return kickoff's and punt return for them and stuff like that."
Drew is in no hurry to commit and will likely wait close to signing day before he decides on a school, "I'm going to wait to see who sticks on and then I'll decide on the last day or a couple weeks before then."
