Also on deadspin and on a post on the National Football Post.

Wasn't sure if you pulled it from there or not :) Should be interesting he wins the starting job next fall.

that was pretty entertaining. then again, he must have some serious time on his hands being the 3rd of 4th string sophomore quarterback. i would love to see him on the field.

With Zach Frazer graduating and no great talent at quarterback, he could have a good chance at starting next year. Looks like he has very good accuracy, decent arm strenth, and good arm mechanics.

It's ridiculously impressive, but it doesn't mean that his accuracy translates to the football field.

Certainly not. I remember stories about Kyle Boller throwing a ball into a trash can form 50 yards, but he couldn't do it while the scouts were watching. He had all the tools but couldn't perform under pressure. Same could be true of this kid.

That was amazing. Some team will draft him eventually, even if it is just because of that video.

That was fun. The stuff on the basket ball court is crazy.

Hmmm I wonder how many times he tired some of these?

''How many tries do you think it would take Cam Newton to do these throws?''

Better question- How many tries did it take Johnny Mac to do those throws?

NC State, please offer this guy a full scholarship. Please. With Russell leaving, I am sure he could at least compete for the job.

Put him to the ultimate test... put him in a bar with tons of hot women and see how many he can get to have sex with him.

If this translates to the field UConn will have no problem forgetting Zach Frazer.

Alex Tanney, the QB from Monmouth, made his own trick shot video. Yahoo! has compared the two.

Makes me want to get my kid next door neighbor who plays peewee football and have him make a trick shot video. I'll get him to throw passes into his LittleTikes basketball hoop, and then have all my buddies jumping around like jackasses after he finally makes it in on the 8th try. Gonna be huge on the YouTubes.
