There are more proven quarterbacks than the Cougars Cameron Ward. He spent his last two seasons as a starter at the University of Incarnate Word (a San Antonio Catholic school), an FCS floor mat before his arrival. However, it’s the mystery that makes him the most alluring. Ward was overlooked in high school where he was molested in a Wing-T offense. Ward is a 6-foot-3, 225-pound dual-threat air assault dynamite staff that could skyrocket the draft boards if he goes down in 2022.
Much like Trey Lance two years ago, Ward won the Jerry Rice Award given to the best freshman in FCS in 2021 after passing 4,700 yards and piercing the end Zone of 47 touchdown shots when throwing only 10 interceptions. For the 2022 season, Ward moved to Washington State, followed by his head coach Eric Morris, who is now the Cougars’ offensive coordinator. Scouts have already noticed the ball whistling from Ward’s hands and his smooth throwing motion. Although Ward played on a pass-heavy offense with inferior talent, he kept his turnovers low. He’ll have eyes on him, so it will be up to him to capitalize on it. And if His four touchdown performance in Washington State’s spring game says it all, he seems comfortable with it.
