Chad Dashnaw will do whatever it takes to land his first Division I offer.
The hunt for that elusive offer will continue this week as the Acton (Calif.) Vasquez quarterback heads to the South.
Dashnaw is attending the Louisiana Tech camp that begins today, followed by another camp at Arkansas over the weekend.
"I know that I've got to keep working and someone will find me somewhere," he said. "I'm going to keep a good attitude about it and I know good things will happen as long as I keep working hard."
The 6-foot-4, 220-pound pro-style passer said those two schools have emerged as his leaders at this point. Dashnaw said San Diego and Cal-Davis are the other two schools in his current top four.
After a nice showing at the recent Super Seven camp in Maui, Louisiana Tech was among a number of schools that began showing interest in Dashnaw.
He's hoping a trip to their camp will convince Bulldogs coaches he deserves an offer.
"My coach said it would be good for me to come out because they're really interested in me," he said. "My quarterback coach, Steve Clarkson, has talked to them and put in a really good word for me. They're really want me to come out to camp, and I'm going to give them my best showing."
Dashnaw said he's been speaking with Tech offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Frank Scelfo for the past two weeks and likes what the school has to offer.
"I know they throw the ball a lot, and I like their coaches," he said. "I like Lousiana, too. It's a cool place."
Following his time in Ruston, La., Dashnaw will head to Arkansas to audition for the Razorbacks' coaching staff.
"It's a very solid program," he said. "They just started contacting me. They're an interesting school and I like the offense they run. I want to give them my best showing as well."
Neither school has landed a quarterback for its 2010 class, and Dashnaw is prepared to pull the trigger on his commitment this weekend if things work out.
"I'll probably commit right away if one of them offers me," he said. "We'll see what happens."
