Jake Bleskin: Cats Starting Quarterback

Posted: Updated:
"Very excited I've been here three years now and just waiting my turn we all DeNarius is a big deal he deserves it so hoping to fill in for what he brings," said sophomore quarterback Jake Bleskin.

Different feel at Cats practice, as sophomore quarterback Jake Bleskin is the starting quarterback. They say good quarterbacks are intelligent, and while the Great Falls native lacks experience, he has the football IQ.

"As I've been open about it as well, he's a smart a quarterback as I've worked with knows how to read coverages knows where the ball needs to go competitive kid and long story short he can spin it," said offensive coordinator Tim Cramsey.

"We're going to get after we know Jake can make plays. He made plays in the Spring, he's made plays when he gets in the game. So it doesn't affect us we're going to get after us and get nasty," said junior right guard Quinn Catalano.

Bleskin has always had the mindset that he could go in and run the offense.

"I coach everybody as if they were the starter. He prepared every game as if he were the starter and his preparation this week hasn't changed," said Cramsey.

"As  back up qb, I prepared just like I"m going to start. What if DeNarius went down in the game I want to be ready," said Bleskin.

So what's unique about the CMR alum? It's quite simple.

I think it's Jake's intelligence is what separates him from everybody else. He's a guy that's always take it from the meeting room to the practice field. He has all the answers in the meeting room, and when he gets on the field he's in the right spot," said Cramsey.
