Class of 2013 tight end Adam Breneman has made quite a name for himself over the last two years, but some of that would not be possible without the help of rising junior quarterback Andrew Ford. The Camp Hill (Pa.) Cedar Cliff signal caller attended several camps this summer and is looking to hit the road during the fall to attend a few games.
"I attended the Nike Camp in Baltimore, one day camps at Penn State, Pitt, Virginia and Maryland and the PA Swag 7-on-7 camp at Plymouth Whitemarsh High School," said Ford, who is 6-foot-3 and 190-pounds. "All of the camps went really well. I heard a lot of positive feed back from all of those schools."
Ford attended the summer camps to further improve his game and to also get a jumpstart on his recruiting process.
"I think recruiting is going really well," said Ford. "My goal for the summer was to really get my name out there and show a little bit of what I can do."
Several schools are showing serious early interest in Ford's abilities.
"The four schools that I camped at this summer, Maryland, Virginia, Penn State and Pitt, and also schools like Michigan and UConn that came to school in the spring," he said.
After having a busy summer, Ford will look to continue his busy schedule during the fall.
"I'm going to games at Virginia, Penn State, Maryland and Pitt, and I'm also trying to get to games at Michigan and Notre Dame," said Ford, who is already looking at important factors in his future school. "I want to go somewhere where there are great academics first, and also a coaching staff that I'm comfortable with on a football and personal level."
With Penn State being close to home and his current teammate committed to the Nittany Lions, Ford has and interesting vantage point for everything that has gone on at Happy Valley.
"For me it's really early in the process so I have the chance to sit back and watch things unfold, but I haven't lost any interest in them because it is so early," said Ford.
Knowing that a number of schools will be keeping a close eye on him this fall, Ford has spent all of his off-season improving his game.
"I think I have become a better all-around quarterback and I got even closer to my goal of being one of the top quarterbacks in the nation," said Ford. "Coach Cantafio really put me through a great off-season program that pushed me everyday and helped me improve my overall game. I'm ready for the season to get started."
