Still Available: QB Deondre Ford

Dodge City QB Deondre Ford (6-1.5, 205) hopes to find a place to play this fall after two solid seasons with the Conqs...



After two solid seasons with Dodge City, Ford, who completed over 60% of his passes for 2,826 yards with 18 touchdowns and rushed for 173 yards and four touchdowns as a sophomore this past season, is still looking for a place to play in 2015.

"Pocket passer that runs when he has to," Ford told JCFootball.com over the weekend. "I prefer throwing from the pocket though."

As a prep at Midway High School in Waco, Texas, Ford was a talented signal-caller with a bright future and he decided to head to Dodge City after he was unable to qualify.

"It was a great opportunity to impact a up-and-coming school with my play," Ford said. "I wanted to help change the winning environment of a school that has not won many games in years and also to play for (head coach) Gary Thomas.

"I just felt God led me there."

Ford will finish up his two-year degree this spring and he will have three years to play two starting in the fall.
