Player Profile: Santa Rosa WR Aubrey Quarles

The Santa Rosa football team is loaded with athletic skill-position players and WR Aubrey Quarles is a player that could be the best of the bunch. He was named an All-American in 2006 and he's ready to do whatever it takes, including sharing his catches with other, in order for his team to win.

"I'll do whatever it takes to win," Quarles told recently. "I don't care if I only have one or two catches. Winning is the absolute most important thing to me."

As a freshman for the Bear Cubs, Quarles put up impressive numbers: 70 receptions for 1,100 yards and 12 touchdowns. For his efforts he was named to the All-American team and was also first team All-Conference as well.

"I had a good year, but I can do so much better it isn't even funny," Quarles said. "I was just kind of getting by on my athleticism instead of really working on my route-running and cuts.

"This summer that's really what I'm focused on doing. I want to get a lot better as a route-runner and I think that will help make me better as a receiver."

Quarles prepped in Aurora, Colorado at Grandview High School and he signed with Wyoming on letter-of-intent day in 2006. He didn't qualify however and so he ended up at Santa Rosa.

"The Wyoming staff told me about Santa Rosa and when I talked to the coaches and looked at their offense, I knew that it was the best place for me," Quarles recalled. "They like to throw it a lot here and when you're a receiver that really helps make your decision easier."

In fact, Santa Rosa racked up almost 4,500 yards through the air and, teaming with fellow All-American Greg Alexander, Quarles plans to do more of the same this year.

"We're going to be much better this year," Quarles said. "My goal is to win every game. I really don't have any personal goals, because those will come if we win. I want to win everything...all the time. That's what really drives me."

As far as recruiting is concerned, Quarles is hearing from four schools right now on a regular basis, but that's sure to change after the spring evaluation period starts.

"Oregon State, LSU, Minnesota and Arizona State are the main ones right now," Quarles said. "I'm open to everyone right now because it's really early and I've been through this whole thing before so I pretty much know what to expect."

Wherever Quarles ends up, he's expecting to graduate in December (although he's still trying to make sure he'll have enough credits) and he'll have three years to play two.

He plans to major in Sports Nutrition as well.
