  Pressure? Grant Gunnell welcomes it. Not necessarily the in-your-face pressure from a blitzing linebacker. No quarterback likes that, including Arizona's. We're talking about the pressure that comes with leading an offense and becoming the face of a program. It can be daunting, especially when that program has lost seven games in a row, has an embattled head coach and lacks depth and experience at key positions on defense. Gunnell wouldn't have it any other way. "There's always pressure when you're playing football," the sophomore said. "That's not a bad thing to me. I see and feel pressure as something that drives me. If you're not feeling pressure, those butterflies in your stomach, you don't love football. You can ask anyone." Arizona is asking a lot of Gunnell. Although he has only three career starts, he is the undisputed starting quarterback for 2020 and beyond. He was tasked with keeping the team together when they couldn't physically be together in the spring and summer. He represented the Wildcats during the virtual version of Pac-12 Media Days.

Only two of the 12 players were sophomores: Gunnell and Arizona State quarterback Jayden Daniels. UA players recently voted for team captains. Gunnell was the only sophomore to make the cut. The other four were fourth- or fifth-year veterans. "He's a natural-born leader," Wildcats cornerback Christian Roland-Wallace said. Although there's still work to be done - Gunnell showed great promise as a freshman, but it's a small sample size and he still has much to prove - the record-setting quarterback from Houston has toiled to reach this point. He's the starting QB for a Power Five program, piloting an offense built around him. "Grant has unbelievable passion for this game, and he wants to be really good at it," said offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Noel Mazzone, who recruited Gunnell to Texas A&M before both made their way to Tucson. "This is something that he's worked (for) basically his whole young life up to this point, to play major college football. It's just very, very important to him." - Arizona Star News
