An Excerpt From Cougar Sports Weekly
There were a couple of things that ESPN.com noted [about QB recruit Tyler Bruggman] that did stand out to me in the few minutes I was able to find.
First, Bruggman has excellent pocket awareness — he’s able to move side to side while keeping his eyes downfield to find a target. His poise is superb, and I’m guessing this is one of the things that attracted Leach to him. Leach has said he needs his quarterback to be a cool customer, able to keep his head and lead the team in difficult times. At least in terms of on-field play, Bruggman seems to fit that bill.
Secondly, he has a bit of an unorthodox delivery in which he winds up and then sort of seems to shot-put the ball. It’s different, but it doesn’t appear to limit his effectiveness. And given Leach’s own unorthodoxy (yes, that’s actually a word!), I’m guessing he could care less as long as he can do everything he needs to do effectively.
