Loncar's Big Arm Leads Citrus' Attack

After a solid freshman campaign in 2010, Citrus QB Blake Loncar (6-5, 225) is a gun-slinger to watch this fall. The talented signal-caller has everything D-1 schools are looking for -- height, size, a big arm -- and this offseason he says his focus is on being even quicker when making decisions on where to go with the ball...

"I've been studying a lot of film already," Loncar told JCFootball.com. "I just want to be sure of being able to recognize defenses even quicker so I know where I'm going that much faster.

"Basically, I want to get the ball out of my hands quicker so I can let my receivers do what they do best."

As a freshman, Loncar completed nearly 51% of his throws for over 1,500 yards with 15 touchdowns and 9 interceptions.

Because of his size and strength, he even had some schools giving him a long look once the calendar changed from 2010 to 2011.

"Back in January, schools were looking at me," Loncar recalled. "None of them were big schools though. It was mainly D-1AA, D-2 and a couple NAIA schools.

"Me and my coaches thought I had a chance, if I came back, we thought I had a chance to have a special season and that I could play D-1 football, so that's my focus right now."

As a prep, Loncar had to sit behind Richard Brehaut who signed with UCLA, so he didn't have a lot of time to make an impression on D-1 coaching staffs.

"I fully qualified, but as a sophomore and junior I sat behind (Brehaut) so I didn't really have much of a chance for schools to see me," Loncar noted. "Then as a senior, I had a good year and I was looking at either RCC (Riverside) or Citrus and I chose Citrus because at RCC I was going to have to greyshirt and I didn't want to do that.

"We run a spread here, so I have to make quick decisions and get my guys the ball. I feel like I can play in any system though and I'm more of a pocket-passer, that's what I do best."

Loncar plans to play this fall at Citrus and then hopes to sign with a school in December. Wherever he ends up he will have three years to play two the moment he steps on campus.
