Dual-Threat QB Blake Sullivan - The Kansas Kordell Stewart!
Blake Sullivan is a extremely dynamic player at the quarterback position and you will see what I like to call the "Kordell Stewart of Kansas"! Blake's numbers were uncanny last season and he was able to throw for 1629 yards and 28 touchdowns, while being responsible for 17 TD's on the ground with 1404 yards. Blake's team was the 5A State runner up and he was able to garner All-State Honorable Mention. On Blake's first play of his highlight's he is able to scamper 95 yards for a score. I was able to calculate his last 40 yards as he was busting towards the end-zone, at a 4.44 second time. This shows me Blake is at least running a 4.7 or under 40 yard dash. On the next play, Blake shows a quick release and a strong arm in being able to fit the ball in a small window for a touchdown! On his third play, Blake's coordinator called a beautiful trick play that ends up with Blake "high-pointing" the ball and being able to "Moss" the defensive back, taking the ball all the way for a score. Blake demonstrates a very fluid throwing motion and is able to get the ball out quickly. He is very good at escaping pressure and maneuvering in the pocket, while still delivering a accurate dart downfield. Blake can push the ball downfield with precision and strength, while also being able to lower his shoulder and deliver a blow in the read/option game. At 2:47 into film, Blake delivers a perfect timing 15 yard out and demonstrates his abilities to complete valuable "timing passes" that create automatic first downs at any level. Honestly, when I watch this young man's highlight tape the most deserving nickname for this fine QB is "THE KORDELL STEWART Of KANSAS". Kordell was one of my favorite players growing up because of his versatility on the football field. Blake shows similar abilities in his style of play and I could see him launching the same type of Hail Mary to win the game just as Kordell did back here in Colorado. When you watch Blake escape pressure around 3:00 minutes into his film, tell me I am wrong!
So far Emporia State, Drake, Missouri Western, Sterling and Benedictine have sent text messages and have asked him to fill out paperwork. I can see many offers coming Blake's way as he continues to build his case as a Elite Quarterback in the world of Collegiate football.
