Andy Peters, Timberline Quarterback: The next “From Walk-On To Greatness”?

Whoops! Missed A Good One

Last week I posted the Broncos finally landed a quarterback recruit for the next incoming class. It was Cade Fennegan.

That was not quite correct as the Broncos had previously invited Andy Peters, a local quarterback standout, from Timberline as a walk-on. Andy accepted. 

He Looks Good

The interesting thing about Andy is that he has a three-star rating from 247. They also rate him at 53rd in the nation. He had offers from Central Washington and Idaho State. In addition, he visited Oregon State. Likely it is felt he has D1 potential.

Andy is 6’3” and 200 pounds. He has good size, agility, and speed; running the 40 in 4.67.

He has good balance and footwork in the pocket. On run plays, he quickly bursts off the snap catching opposing defenses flat-footed—extremely quick.

Also, Andy can drill the ball into a receiver’s numbers. Not only that, he possesses a nice soft touch on fade routes too. There are few who have as quick of a delivery. And yet able to send the ball deep with the least amount of motion.

Prince Andrew

The Broncos have a reputation for bringing out the best in those overlooked. Their history is stacked with students who walk-on, work hard, achieve, and star. Andy stands poised to do so. He certainly has plenty of skill and potential.

Here’s to hoping Timberline’s Prince Andrew has a Cinderella career at Boise State University. 

That said: Andy, welcome to the Blue, we’re pulling for ya, buddy!
