McKees Rocks (Pa.) Montour quarterback Dillon Buechel may not put up the kind of passing numbers that will jump off a stat sheet but he just gets the job done.
The 6-foot-3, 170-pound pro-style quarterback is a leader and has all the tools to play at the next level. Most importantly, he has led Montour to a 5-0 record.
Some games Montour has lined up in the Power I and run the ball between the tackles, while in other games they have lined up in four wide receiver sets and spread the ball around on the outside. Whatever it takes to win.
"I've been doing pretty good this year. I've had a pretty good season," Buechel said. "We're winning and that's all that matters."
Buechel doesn't like to keep the spotlight on himself but he did mention that he has made significant strides in at least one area of his game since his sophomore season.
"My decision making is a lot better," he noted. "I think last year around this time I had three or four picks. This year I only have one. My decision making has been a lot better."
Pitt is the one school that Buechel has maintained steady contact with. The Panthers have made it clear that they are evaluating him, though they have not verbally offered him a scholarship, and you can expect that interest to continue going forward.
"They've come by the school a couple of times and I went down to visit for the Miami game," he recalled. "There was a coach from Virginia that came in and I've been getting a lot of mail from Big Ten schools and a couple of SEC schools.
"Right now I don't have any favorites ... not until I get to go on a few more campus visits and see the atmosphere and things like that. Really the only place I've been to so far is Pitt, and it was good, but I wouldn't say I have any favorites."
