2016 Holy Family quarterback Chris Helbig of Broomfield, Colorado had a monster junior campaign throwing for over 3,300 yards, 33 touchdowns against only seven interceptions while leading his team to an 8-3 record. The 6-4 190 pound signal caller had five games in which he threw for over 300 yards including two 400 yard plus games. Helbig’s measurables as well as his production has gained the prospect attention and this offseason could bring a first offer.
Now that Helbig’s basketball campaign is over, he averaged over 18 points a game this season for a 20-5 squad, Helbig he is focused on football and will hit the 7on7 and camp circuit to improve his game and potential gain an offer. This weekend Helbig is competing in Chicago with his Colorado Express 7on7 squad, which includes Mikey Griebel, Carlo Kemp and other of Colorado’s best football athletes.
Beyond 7on7, Helbig has a busy college camp schedule set up, heading to Nebraska elite, Colorado, Cal San Diego State and potentially Texas State. A very strong student, Helbig is interested in Ivy League football and has been contacted by Ivy programs. In April Helbig will visit the University of Colorado and he hopes to make a trip east to visit Ivy schools.
Helbig can throw from multiple platforms and has good feet in and out of the pocket. He is especially adept throwing on the run. Further, not a speedster, the long strider is athletic enough to keep defenses honest as a runner. Helbig does not have a gun but he does look able to make enough throws for the right college system. Also his intelligence will allow him to read defenses and make the appropriate decisions early in his college career.
