With a strong group of quarterbacks in the state of Texas this season, some times it's easy to forget about Allen, Texas, standout Nathan Dick.
The 6-foot-3, 194-pounder missed parts of his junior season with an broken bone in his tibia, but he still was able to earn honorable mention all-district honors. Still his name doesn't get talked about with the likes of Mallet, Lee and others in the Lone Star State, but he proved at Saturday's NIKE Training Camp in College Station, Texas, that he's
"It just wanted to come out here and do my best," Dick said. "I wanted to do the events, run my best 40 and I think I did the best as I could. I knew I was going to do well. I did really well in the one-on-ones.
"I'm really confident with my throws now. I know I have a strong enough arm to get it there. I just have to trust my receivers to be there when I get it there and everything will be good."
Dick threw for 1,416 yards and 11 scores in 2005, which has prompted SMU to already offer him a scholarship. The Mustangs and coach Eric Roark have made a very big impression on him, but the list of suitors still remains pretty long.
"The SMU offer is really nice," he said. "I'm talking a whole lot to Vanderbilt and Iowa. Arkansas, Nebraska, Oklahoma State and Colorado State are the other teams that have really been sending me a lot of stuff."
But after a strong performance on Saturday don't be surprised if you see more teams travel up to the north Dallas suburb and get involved.
