Brett Rypien Talks About His SEC Offer

Washington state wouldn’t come to mind if I asked you what state would Mississippi State be looking at for a player, but that is the case in 2015. The Bulldogs have extended an offer to Shadle Park (Spokane) High School signal caller Brett Rypien. The talented 6 foot 2 185 pound Rypien was very excited to hear that the Bulldogs felt like he is a quarterback that could lead their team in the near future.

Rypien is working hard to improve every aspect of his game. He feels like his team can be very good this year, and he can help them along the way.

“I am definitely a pocket passer,” said Rypien. “I don’t really use my legs that much unless I have to. But I can pull the ball down and run for a first down if I need to.

“Right now I am trying to put on some more weight. I also want to gain more speed and improve my footwork. I also want to improve my football IQ. My footwork and football IQ are the two strongest parts of my game.

“I think our team has the potential to be very good this year. We have definitely worked hard enough this off-season to make a run at a state championship this year.”

While most of Rypien’s offers have come from the west coast area, he did receive his first SEC offer from the Mississippi State Bulldogs. That offer got Rypien’s attention.

“The Mississippi State offer was huge for me because obviously they are a great program,” he said. “But the SEC is the premiere conference in college football. So it felt good to get that offer.

“I think I would fit in very well in Coach Mullen’s offense. He likes to spread the ball around and get a lot of players involved and that is what we do at my high school.

“I am going to do my best to try to visit soon.”
