2010 Player Spotlights: Drew Humphreys

Drew Humphreys
SM West

Positions: Quarterback/Safety
Height: 6'2"
Weight: 185lbs.
Class: Senior

Stat to Note
Humpreys (on the right making a tackle as a sophomore in 2008) played the entire 2009 season with a knee injury before getting it surgically repaired in the offseason. Despite this, he still came away with Second Team All-Sunflower League honors as a defensive back.

Scouting Report
Humphreys has started on defense for the Vikings since his sophomore year, and in 2010 it appears he will be adding the quarterback position to his duties. Humphreys will be playing a similar role for the Vikings as to what Blake Lawrence did for the team in 2006.

While Humphreys isn't as big of a defender, or as polished of a quarterback as Lawrence was, he has similar athleticism and range. Humphreys was excellent in run support from the seconday in 2009, and the team will be looking forward to similar contributions in 2010.

With running backs Will Livingston and Cordi Pascal returning in the backfield for the Vikings, Humphreys won't be facing a ton of pressure to make the big play offensively and it should help him to settle in at quarterback early in the season. After that, watch out.
