Canfield was outstanding that day.
In Canfield the Beavers get a classic southpaw drop back quarterback who throws a very catchable pass and has tremendous touch. He has good mechanics and is mobile within the pocket. Canfield has excellent size and a huge upside.
Canfield has been wowing them since his sophomore season when was selected first-team all-state underclass. All Canfield did was lead Carlsbad high school to the San Diego CIF Section Division I championship as a sophomore.
Hit by heavy graduation as a junior, Canfield still shined. Canfield hit on 152 of 266 passes for 1,749 yards and 12 touchdowns. His performance was good enough to earn all-league and all-state (HM) underclass honors.
The Beavers win the services of Canfield over another from UTEP. He had other interest from UCLA, Washington, Colorado, Oklahoma, San Diego State, and Wyoming.
Nice get for the Beavers and Mike Riley.
