Davis Brin the latest rising star from Boerne, Texas
NFA is hugely successful training talented young quarterbacks from all across the United States and up in Canada. Boerne, Texas, has really become a hotbed of talent.
Quinten Dormady, who has been training with NFA since 2011, is the starting quarterback at Boerne High School, and he is headed off to play college football at Tennessee next season.
Ethan Fitzgerald has roots in Boerne, located just outside of San Antonio, and he finished third in the 2013 Duel at Massillon, Ohio.
Next up is Davis Brin, who won this summer’s NFA showcase event in the competition among incoming freshman.
“This was my second time at the Duel, and two years ago, my first time there, I was a little bit nervous,” Brin said. “It was kind of more for the experience and I performed pretty well, but not in top three.”
After leading his Boerne Middle School South team to an 8-1 record and District title as an eighth grader, Brin kept working and he prepared himself for another trip to historic Paul Brown Tiger Stadium in Ohio.
“This year, I definitely wanted to finish in the top three or four,” Brin said. “I had more confidence going into this year’s competition. To finish first, it was a great feeling. I was really happy and I worked hard for it. And I was coming out from behind. I started out fourth going into the finals and I did well in the final gauntlet and came out on top.”
Brin carried the added confidence back to Texas, where he is quarterbacking Boerne Champion High School’s top freshman team this season. “It definitely boosted my confidence up,” he said. “And I was able to get my three-step drops down over the summer and I was working a lot on my ball speed.”
As the 6-foot-1, 160-pounder continues to gain experience and size – Brin is projected to reach 6-3 or 6-4 in height – look for more big things in the future at the varsity level and beyond.
Playing with many of the same teammates he was with last season, Brin is eyeing another District title as a freshman. “I have a lot of expectations for this season,” he said. “I think we’re going to do really well. We have a big team and the goal is just to win as many ballgames as we can. Personally, I would like to throw more touchdowns. I’m not really a running quarterback, so that’s something I’d like to work on and improve on.”
As he continues training with NFA, Brin should achieve his goal of playing varsity football as a sophomore. “I’ve been going to NFA camps for almost three years and they’ve really helped me with my mechanics,” Brin said. “I feel like it’s all starting to come together and I’m cracking the code a little bit. And with the leadership qualities I’ve learned, I just feel they’ve helped me become a better quarterback.”
