Focus '06: Drew Dudzik

It's well noted that the junior season is one of the most important to the hopes of a high school football player in getting the chance to play at the next level.

It's well noted that the junior season is one of the most important to the hopes of a high school football player in getting the chance to play at the next level. With that being said, it should come as no surprise that Centreville High (Clifton, Va.) quarterback Drew Dudzik is being recruited by so many Division I schools.

The 6'0", 185-pound Dudzik threw for over 1,800 yards and 26 touchdowns as a junior, while being intercepted just four times. Among the schools recruiting him are Virginia, Boston College, Syracuse, Texas A & M, Wake Forest, Duke, and Maryland.

"If I had to say there was a favorite right now, it would be Boston College," Dudzik said. "They keep in touch with me, and one of our linemen has signed with them."

"I have been to some Virginia games, and I am very interested in the program. I am just looking at each program, and evaluating the quarterback situations."

Dudzik, who plans to attend the Nike Camp at Penn State in April, has a good grasp of his strengths and weaknesses.

"My accuracy is my strength," Dudzik said. "I can pinpoint the ball to where it needs to be, whether it is down the sidelines or between defenders."

"As far as what I need to work on, I would think it is my reads. I don't feel like I am short, but we have a tall offensive line, and sometimes it's hard to see over it. I need to do a better job of handling that."
