Power Clean: 250
What makes you stand out as a future collegiate athlete?
I envision my success as a quarterback not due to athletic abilities or height. My success at quarterback and football will be because I am able to lead people and a team all together for a greater achievement. Naturally people follow me because they see me as an athlete or a quarterback but there is more to it than that. When I started feeder football in 6th grade for the high school I’m districted for it was only my second season playing quarterback. Both of the coaches sons played quarterback and they were above me on the depth chart for the first 4 games and this really got to me because I knew I was better than both of them. The coaches had a meeting and decided that I should be the starter. We ended the season making it to the state semifinals with a record of 9-2.
Off the field I will carry myself with pride and respect knowing that my actions reflect on the university that I attend. Academically I take this as serious as football. Whichever university I attend I know I will give everything I have to help and prove myself that I am worth being on the team. I want to make an immediate impact on the team in whichever way possible whether it be scout team or starter.
Tripp transferred to Cartersville after starting the entire year at Cambridge as a sophomore, so he sat behind a senior back in 2019, and doesn’t have a ton of film. Still, some good footage of him training this fall. Tripp is a decent dual threat QB. He gets up field with urgency, has pretty good acceleration. More of a good runner with good vision than really using pure speed to get around defenders. Mechanics are solid, sometime he does throw off his back foot, but that seems to be improving with these off the field videos. Can zip the pass down the middle, pretty good from intermediate range. Interesting release slot, looks to be 3/4 in his sophomore/junior film, but once again, the offseason videos show a more over the top release. Follows through and does a nice job of reading the defense. We have big expectations for Tripp this fall at Cartersville, and he should really jump on colleges’ recruiting boards.
