    Heaps has the potential to be a GREAT qb at BYU...he would be splitting hairs with the bottom 10 of the list right now, but, man that kid has a bright, bright future.

    Think you missed a QB on your list: Jake Heaps. Curious where you would rank him.

    Hello Derrick. I would definitely be interested in writing for your site. Ironically, after checking your site out and reading your profile, I actually live about 15 minutes north of you in Elkview, WV.

    I will give you a little background info on myself. I am 38 years old, married father of a 4 month old. I am a graduate of WVU and Mountain State University in Beckley. I have an MBA with an emphasis in Marketing.

    I obviously like writing about college football in general. That is pretty much the only sports these days I have the time to invest in, but I watch any and every game I can regardless of who is playing.

    I am a "big idea" kind of guy, and I am always looking and thinking about how to make things bigger and better.

    Thanks for dropping me a line.
