After his second-straight outstanding season at Northwest Mississippi, QB Casey Weston (6-3, 205) is…
Weston hopes to prove he belongs
"I always dreamed of playing D-1 and in the SEC," Weston admitted to JCFootball.com recently. "My dad had Auburn tickets and we would go and ever since I was little I wanted to play SEC ball so I came to school (at Northwest Mississippi) in order to give myself a chance because I only really get one shot at it."
As a freshman in 2008, Weston had a standout season for the Rangers completing over 57% of his passes for 2,072 yards, 16 touchdowns and nine interceptions.
"I'm definitely more of a pocket guy," Weston said. "When you have a running back like Tijuan Green there, you don't need to get out and run much, but I can do it and be mobile enough to keep defenses honest."
On the recruiting front, Weston just now got out his film to schools across the country hoping to see who might be interested in his skills.
"I am hoping to hear back from a bunch of them soon," Weston said. "I just want the chance to play. I want to stay in the SEC if possible, but if I need to leave to play somewhere else then I'll do that."
Weston was a full-qualifier out of high school so he can leave at any time, but he plans to finish his AA degree in December and enroll in January wherever he ends up and he'll have three years to play two following the 2009 season.
