Texas QB has plenty of suitors
The spread offense is taking over football at all levels. Not only are more college teams running the wide-open offense, but high school teams across the country are turning to the spread. As that occurs, the quarterbacks of those teams are getting increased interest from Division One teams. Hereford (TX) standout Parker Bridwell is one such signal caller.
Bridwell has the Missouri Tigers on the list of teams he's hoping to hear from in the next few months. He completed 181 of his 308 passes as a junior for 2,212 yards. He threw 14 touchdowns and 13 interceptions, "but that's very deceptive because he had five in the last ball game where we just played attrociously," Hereford coach Don Delozier said. Bridwell ran for just 145 yards, but his coach thinks he will be more of a dual threat as a senior.
Right now, Bridwell's lone offer is from New Mexico State. But he has been to a junior day at Texas A&M and Delozier said he has heard from the likes of Miami (FL), Oklahoma State, UTEP and Oregon. Bridwell hopes to be the second Hereford quarterback to go Division One, following in the footsteps of former Red Raider signal caller Cody Hodges.
