Metamora QB Thomas Hall talked his offseason work with QB coach Caleb Terbush, schools showing interest in him and I also got head coach Patrick Ryan’s thoughts on Hall.
Commitment status: Undecided
Wt: 205 lbs
LPI: With the season just coming to an end, what are you going to do to take your game to the next level? Also, do you play any other sports in the offseason or do you play 7on7?
TH: Over the next 9 months I am going to be focused on 2 key areas, enhancing my skills as a quarterback and becoming the best athlete I can be.
To further develop my skills as a quarterback I will be doing individual workouts, workouts with my teammates and attending various QB camps. My individual workouts will be with my quarterback coach, Caleb Terbush, who played collegiately at Purdue and professionally with the Arizona Cardinals. My teammates and I will be working on routes this offseason, then progressing to 7 on 7 team camps next summer. Finally, I will be attending various college QB camps as well as Alex Tanney’s passing academy.
On the athlete side I will be heavily focused on my other athletic passion of basketball, hitting the weight room hard with some aggressive goals and really working on increasing my speed.
LPI: What are your greatest strengths on the field?
TH: I have received numerous complements from coaches and players on my arm strength, accuracy and pocket presence, but the thing I am most humbled by is the opportunity to lead.
LPI: You currently don’t have any offers. What schools have you been in touch with?
TH: Both Purdue and Southern Illinois have been in close contact with me recently. I have also been in touch with Michigan State, Ball State, Western Illinois and South Dakota over the last several months.
LPI: Do you have any planned visits set? If so, where at?
TH: Over the last couple of weeks I have been invited and visited both Purdue and Southern Illinois.
LPI: Who are some of your teammates or training partners that you believe can play at the next level, but have gone overlooked by college coaches?
Bryton McDonald (2018) – Bryton has great hands and speed. He made some amazing catches this year that you don’t typically see at the high school level. He doesn’t have the height of some guys and I think that is why he gets overlooked but he is really an outstanding receiver.
Ben Bachman (2019) – Ben is a really good athlete and has great hands also. He was our starting tight end/slot receiver and is both strong and really smart. He is going to be overlooked because he broke his collarbone in our first game of the season forcing him to miss this year. He really makes terrific catches and moves will after the catch.
Eric Reinertsen (2019) – Eric is our left tackle and covered my blindside. He is strong, quick and has very good intuition on the field.
Ryan Vogel (2019) – Ryan is our placekicker and every year continues to show greater leg strength. He consistently hits long field goals in practice and is putting kickoffs into the end zone on a regular basis.
Michael Blough (2018) – Michael is a really good athlete. We used him in a variety of positions this year. He has great hands (receiver, kick returner) and did a very good job for us at safety.
Metamora Head Coach Patrick Ryan on Hall on and off the field
“Really good kid. Team doctor’s son, keeps his emotions in check and is very coachable.”
