Travis Wilson


From reports, it sounds like Travis will be starting at QB and team captain. He was challenged by the coaches and has stepped up in leadership and confidence. A USA Today reporter called him a "tremendous athlete". He plays volleyball and basketball. BJ has been mentoring him on technique. The mental stuff like reading defenses and progressions are huge. Jake Heaps was the best at throwing but lacked the mental skills in games and the toughness to compete.

Being elected to captain by fellow players, is a good indicator of Wilson's progress as a leader and player. He will start the season endorsed by colleagues and coaches. He is big and strong which will help him avoid injuries. I am excited to see some play from Shulz and Manning. It appears we have a good QB future. Chase Hansen will be home a year from Dec. Cox and newer guys, who knows.
