2014 QB Eugene Sainterling, Boyd Anderson (FL)

2014 QB Eugene Sainterling (6’4, 195) of Boyd Anderson High in Florida is hearing from Tennessee, Indiana, North Texas, and Florida Atlantic, but currently holds no offers.

He spoke on the four programs recruiting him.

“The FAU coaches really like me. I camped last week, and QB coach Brian Wright told me he liked my technique and decision making. I expect FAU to offer in the next couple of months.

“When I was at the Clear Vision Clear Dreams camp, the Tennessee coach told me he likes the way I throw the ball and that he’d be in touch with me.

“I believe North Texas is close to offering. They like my arm strength and how I fit into their offense. I’ll visit North Texas if and when they offer.

Indiana visited during the spring, really liked my size and how I threw the football.”

Sainterling camped at Miami and impressed the Hurricanes coaching staff. “I attended Al Golden’s camp and won QB MVP. Quarterbacks coach James Coley told me I have good footwork and a good feel for the game with my presence and timing.”

Sainterling is stepping in for QB Greg Hankerson, who is now attending FAU, and talked about how he’ll fill the starter’s role for Boyd Anderson. “I throw with my receivers everyday after practice to get better,” he said. “I have to be a better decision maker and just execute our plays. I have some things to improve upon, but I’m confident I’ll be able to step up.”

He discussed his goals for the 2013 season. “Really, my only goal is to win. I have a winning mentality and it’s all about wins. I’m not focused on myself, but if I take care of business, I know the team will be in good shape. I need to be mentally prepared for every game, stay out of trouble off the field, do well in school, and not having to worry about that, I can just focus on what I need to do on Friday nights.”

The senior signal-caller discussed what he’s seeking in a college program. “Academics and the coaching staff will be important to me. I want to be able to trust that the coach who recruited me will be there for my four years.

“I have aspirations of playing in the NFL, so I’d prefer a pro-style scheme, but I can the run the spread also.”

Sainterling said he’ll play college football anywhere. “I’m open to any location in the United States.”

Early playing time will not be a deciding factor for Boyd Anderson’s quarterback. “I want to watch and learn from the upperclassmen. I’m willing to move up through the ranks and earn my playing time.”
