Hard Work A Key To German's Success
"You always have to go out and improve, otherwise people are catching up and that isn't good.
"We had a good spring and we've been out throwing the ball four or five days a week so far, just to keep up our timing and our conditioning."
As a freshman for PRCC last fall, German filled up the stat sheet, completing 65% of his passes for 2,728 yards, 17 touchdowns with only six interceptions and rushed for 119 yards and eight touchdowns.
"I'd say I'm a quarterback who is an athlete," was the way German described himself to JCFootball.com back in February. "I throw first and then if things break down, I run it or I keep plays alive by moving around and that allows my receivers to get open for longer gains."
On the recruiting front, schools came by to see German, along with several other PRCC players, and he said a couple have maintained their level of interest in him.
"Right now it's Auburn, Mississippi State and Miami that are recruiting me the hardest," German said. "No one has offered me yet and I think a lot of them want to check out my transcripts and also see me a little more before they start offering.
"Honestly, I know it sounds weird, but I'm not really focused on it right now and I'm not worried about it either. It's just somethign where, I can't convince people I can play. I just have to show them what I can do and if they like me, then they know how to find me and offer if they like me enough.
"I just want to play ball and be a part of a winner. We're going to do some great things here at Pearl River with all he talented players we have and some of the freshman that are coming in and that's what I want at the next level too.
"It's gotta be a place I feel comfortable with, where the coaches make me feel at home and I can get a good education. The rest will take care of itself."
German is on pace to graduate in December and he will have three years to play two wherever he ends up.
