For the record, arm strength is not the only important thing to look for in a college football quarterback recruit. That said, it sure is fun.
There are plenty great things about the game of football. For many, one of those things is watching the quarterback heave the ball down the field, get it over the defensive back's head and drop it on a dime right into their receiver's hands.

Quarterbacks with great arm strength can also throw the ball into tight windows like it's been shot out of a cannon. It may not have the loft and beauty of a deep ball, but it still is just as impressive.
