The past few weeks won't soon be forgotten by Cleveland (Tenn.) quarterback Chad Voytik.
First, he shined at the Elite 11 Quarterback regional camp in Athens, Ga. Then, he got invited to participate in the 2012 U.S. Army All-American Bowl.
"It feels awesome," Voytik told Rivals.com.

In Athens on April 15, Voytik was the most accurate passer on hand, rarely missing a target despite competing in heavy, swirling winds that had many quarterbacks on hand way off target.
"It just felt like I was in my nature," Voytik said. "I love competing like that. I take pride in my quick release. My compact motion increases my accuracy. I watch some of the best quarterbacks and see what they do with their motion and try to make it be as close to that as possible. In a situation with the wind, rain, whatever, I feel like my ball goes through the air better because it's spinning so much."
Less than a week after that performance, Voytik got his much-anticipated Army invite.
"I've wanted that for awhile" Voytik said. "I watched it my freshman year. In middle school, I watched it. I've been to the combine the last two years, after my sophomore and junior seasons. It's always been my dream to play in that game. I'm really honored to be named to that."
Thus far, Voytik has eight offers.
On Tuesday night, the 6-foot-1, 200-pounder listed his current favorites in alphabetical order.
"I've been saying it's Mississippi State, Pittsburgh and Vanderbilt right now," Voytik said. "They're all great schools. From the schools that have offered, that'd be my top three right now."
Voytik also holds offers from Arkansas State, Clemson, Memphis, Middle Tennessee State and Virginia. Thus far, he has visited Alabama, Clemson, Georgia, Mississippi State, Pittsburgh, Tennessee and Vanderbilt.
"I just started hearing from Florida State recently," Voytik said. "But it's pretty new right now. I have talked [with FSU] through Facebook and things like that but I haven't directly called them yet. I just recently heard from them. I talked to Georgia, but they have a lot of young guys, so it may not be the best situation to take a guy in this class."
Voytik is optimistic more opportunities will come his way once spring practice begins in two weeks.
"Hopefully, I'll be getting some other schools to show some more interest," Voytik said. "If we start hearing more from the schools and they show interest in me I might be visiting some more. Hopefully after the evaluation period I'll sit down and make a decision. I can't promise that, but that's kind of a timetable for a decision."
