Greer is ready to lead the Navarro attack

As he nears the start of training camp early next month, Navarro QB Josh Greer (6-5, 220) sees the opportunity that is in front of him. With some talented receivers to throw to, he should be able to lead one of the top offenses in the SWJC and he hopes a good season leads to some opportunities with four-year schools...

Greer signed with UAB after enjoying a solid career at Arlington (Tx.) High School, but once he arrived he saw the writing on the wall.

"They had a young quarterback there who was only a year older than me and I just didn't want to sit for three years before I could play," Greer told "I didn't have any problems with the UAB staff, they were great and I learned a lot in my time there, but I wanted to play as early as possible and I think I made a hasty decision to go there and didn't really take into consideration all that I needed to."

Once the 2012 season completed, Greer decided to go the JUCO route and he said Navarro presented the best opportunity for good coaching and possible playing time.

"The staff here is great and they have a lot of talented players every year," Greer said. "I felt like it was right for me to come here and try and establish myself and hopefully, with a good season, I can earn some offers and get out after the season."

While he has yet to take a snap at the collegiate level, Greer still have a handful of schools that have said once they see his first few games, they could step forward with an offer.

"Basically everyone wants to see my film and since I don't have any yet, they said they need to wait until the first month of our season is over before they can really get a better idea of where I'm at in my development," Greer said. "Memphis has been the one I've talked to the most and I've also talked a lot with Syracuse, North Texas and Kansas and I'm getting a lot of letters from other schools, but those are the four I've actually been talking with."

While he's got a big frame and he's athletic enough to make defenses pay with his legs, Greer admitted that he's more of a pocket passer who can move around a little.

"I like to be in the pocket and make plays with my arm," Greer noted. "I'm pretty good on the run though, but even if I break out, my first look is to pass and to keep the play alive with my feet instead of taking off and running."

Greer and his teammates have been throwing five days a week and he said that the chemistry between then is already forming.

"We've got some really talented guys, so it's exciting to think what we can do, but we have to get out on the field and get it done so we make all of this hard work we're putting in now pay off," Greer said.

Greer will finish up his two-year degree in December and he will have three years to play three following the 2013 football season.
