Birse sees big opportunities ahead

Cameron Birse is working out all the time getting ready for May when college coaches are expected to stop by Danville (Calif.) San Ramon Valley to watch him in action.
That will be a crucial time for Birse, a 6-foot-3, 204-pound pro-style quarterback, because it could be the first opportunity for colleges to see him live.
Birse backed up former four-star quarterback Zach Kline, who signed with Cal, last season and so the three-star has not yet had the chance to show off his skills as his high school's starting quarterback.
The spring should be an exciting time, though, and Birse is pumped to show college coaches what he can do.
"There's not much right now and I'm kind of waiting for May to roll around," Birse said. "About 20 schools are going to be swinging by in May to watch me throw. I'm being patient. Right now it's about being patient and waiting for everything to develop.
"I'm very excited. That's kind of the first step. I'm extremely confident how I'm throwing the ball. Right now I feel I can go out there and compete with any quarterback in America and I'm excited to show all these college coaches what I can do."
Cal and Boise State have recently stopped by Birse's school and Utah and Washington State are showing new interest so the San Ramon Valley quarterback is excited.
Birse said he hopes after coaches see him over the next few weeks that his recruitment can take off from there.
"They still haven't seen me in any games but I'm very, very confident right now in my throwing ability and my leadership and I feel like it's going to be an excellent showcase of my personality and all the intangibles that really makes me the top recruit I believe I can be in the future," Birse said.
"Just having the opportunity to show off my intangibles and being able to talk to the coaches in person and having them be able to see me throw in person it's going to be a really great opportunity."
