 Draft Scout College Football Player News

  Spencer Petras is QB1 for the Iowa Hawkeyes now, and, at least in his initial meeting with the media Tuesday, he's carrying himself accordingly. Petras was firm in his belief in the Iowa offense and in his ability to make plays, not excuses. He spoke with authority, knowing that there is no room for the timid under center in a college football game. But, mostly, Petras reiterated what is obvious for any first-year starter at quarterback: Nothing will be known about whether he is up to the challenge until Oct. 24, when the Hawkeyes open a delayed, abbreviated Big Ten Conference season at Purdue. "I'm extremely lucky. I feel really grateful just to be in the same room as a lot of these guys. It's an honor to go out and play with them," Petras said of a Hawkeye offense that is skilled and experienced at every position except the one that matters most.

"It's my job to make sure this doesn't go to waste. We have a great team and a lot of talented guys. It's up to all of us. But it's up to me to execute this offense well." Petras has the size (6-foot-5, 231 pounds), the high school accolades (50 touchdown passes against only two interceptions as a senior at Marin Catholic in northern California), and the trust of Iowa's coaching staff after he beat out the older Peyton Mansell to be Nate Stanley's backup last season. But the redshirt sophomore doesn't have the exposure to meaningful game action after completing 6-of-10 passes in mop-up duty a year ago. - Iowa City Press-Citizen
