Bray gets unexpected offer
Quan Bray from Callaway High School has an impressive list of offers for junior. The talented athlete is being looked at by most schools as a running back, but this season he is playing quarterback for the 5-2 Cavaliers and that caught the attention of Georgia Tech coaching staff who extended the five-foot-eleven athlete an offer yesterday.
"Georgia Tech had not been recruiting me, but then my coach told me they offered me today as a quarterback," Bray said last night. "That is a big offer and I am excited about it."
Prior the Yellow Jackets' offer, Bray figured he would never have the option of being a college quarterback. After watching head coach Paul Johnson's offense on television, Bray is anxious to learn more about the program.
"I had never thought about playing quarterback in college, but now that I have played the position some and with the offer, I could see myself playing there in college," he said. "I have thought about them before, so I am happy they offered. I see that they are winning more since Coach Johnson took over."
Bray is trying to arrange an unofficial visit Saturday for the huge Georgia Tech-Virginia Tech game at Bobby Dodd Stadium, so he can see the offense in action in person for the first time.
"I have not been to Georgia Tech before, but I will probably go up there for the Virginia Tech game," he said.
Bray had one planned unofficial visit earlier this year to Georgia, but that did not happen. If he makes the trip over to Atlanta from Hogansville, it will be his first visit to a college campus in a while.
"I did not get to make it to Athens for the LSU game, but I was planning on it," Bray said. "I have not been to any schools lately, but I hope to see a bunch soon."
Callaway has won five games in a row behind Bray's strong running from the quarterback position and he is hoping the team makes a strong playoff run this season.
"This season has been going pretty well, and the team seems to be coming together right now. They moved me to quarterback this year, and I try to get more people involved and let them make plays," he said. "I do not know my stats yet, but I score a touchdown and get over 100 yards every game so far. I am just trying to get better and better every week.
