Quarterback Kevin Decker out of Greenwich (Conn.) Brunswick helped lead his team to their third consecutive NEPSAC championship. The 6-foot-3, 180-pounder doesn't know anything except winning after taking the reigns a couple years ago, Decker has compiled a perfect record of 26-0.
"I ended up being named the Class C player of the year for the second year in a row," he said. "I had a pretty good season and I saw a big improvement in my game. I have a much quicker release and I'm able to escape pressure. I could tell that I also was able to read defenses more and I had more patience in the pocket."
With so much success in high school, the quarterback prospect is getting his share of college interest.
"I've gotten mail from Notre Dame, Duke, Florida State, Tennessee and Northwestern. Those are the primary schools showing interest at the moment," he said. "I really like Connecticut a lot. I'm pretty crazy about them and I think they have a program on the rise. It is also nice that they are local and have great facilities."
What is Decker looking for out of a college?
"I really want to go somewhere that has a prestigious program with a lot of history behind it," he said. "I don't want to ride the bench wherever I go either. I want to go somewhere I can play and then the last thing it'll come down to is academics since I'm pretty wide open right now."
After throwing for 2,052, 30 touchdowns and nine interceptions, Decker certainly is doing something right. What makes him stand out as a quarterback prospect?
"I can say that I definitely am calm in the pocket and I keep my eyes down on the field," he said. "I think I'm a heady quarterback that tends to make the right decisions."
Decker is considering taking in junior days to Tennessee and Syracuse along with the Nike Camp at Penn State. This summer he plans to attend camps at Boston College, Purdue and Virginia.
