Florida QB says hes blessed

Tallahassee, Fla., is home to some of the top talent each year in the state of Florida and even some times those players can go under the national recruiting radar. Godby quarterback Emanuel Francis hopes to change that. The 6-foot-3, 187-pound quarterback has put up some great numbers in his team's first three games.
"We're 2-1," Francis, ranked as a two-star dual-threat quarterback, said. "We lost to Panama City Moses in a shocker, but we're on a roll now. After that game the offense has put up 40 and 35 pounds.
"I'm doing really well. The first game I was 11 of 17 for 240 yards and two touchdowns. The second game, I was also 11 of 17 for 230 yards. Then last week, we only three it a few times and I was seven for 10 for 100 yards and one touchdown in the air and one on the ground. We killed them."
Just like Francis hopes to be killing it in the recruiting front.
He's received September calls from Clemson, Ole Miss, Auburn, Tulsa, North Carolina, N.C. State, UAB and Memphis.
"Dabo Swinney called and we talked for a long time," Francis said. "Some of the other schools – like Ole Miss, Auburn and Tulsa – have come by the school, too. I'm just waiting to see what happens and what rolls in before I make any kind of decisions."
Francis does have offers from UAB, Memphis and Ole Miss.
