Quarterback Colby Cameron (6-3, 175, 4.8) from Newbury Park, Calif., has helped get his team to a perfect 3-0 start with some impressive victories over some tough teams in the early going.
So far on the season Cameron has thrown for 599 yards and four touchdowns. Not bad when you consider he has been the victim of several dropped passes so far this season.
"Colby's stats would be a lot better if our receivers could hold onto the ball," Newbury Park quarterback coach Keith Smith said. "He had eight drops in our first game alone.
"Our receivers did a better job last week," Smith said. "Colby and our defense is the reason why we are 3-0.
"Colby had an amazing fourth quarter drive to help us win our last game against Oak Park. He was 7-10 on the last drive of the game that included converting on fourth and 10 for a first down. On the very next play, Colby threw a 25 yarder that helped set up the final score.
"A lot of colleges wanted to see Colby play and he's doing great," Smith said. "San Diego State is keeping an eye on him. One of the Washington schools is also looking at him, I'm just not sure which one.
Cameron has one offer on the table from Louisiana Tech.
Cameron earned first-team all-league as a junior and was second-team all-county quarterback behind Notre Dame freshman quarterback Jimmy Clausen after hitting on 195 passes out of 384 attempts for 2,398 yards, 23 touchdowns against 14 interceptions.
In the offseason Cameron worked on improving his skills with former Detroit Lion quarterback Bob Gagliano
"Colby has great feet, and throws well on the run," Gagliano said. "He throws a nice catchable ball, has very good arm, and can make all the throws."
