One word to describe UConn QB’s trick-shot video: totally awesome

Donald Brown, Johnny McEntee, Robert Vaughn, Josh Chichester

There aren’t many times I’m at a loss for words.  Fortunately for you, this is one of them.

UConn backup quarterback Johnny McEntee has posted a video to YouTube which displays his rather unique ability to throw a football.  And shows that he apparently has a lot of free time at his disposal.

The video is just under five minutes long, but it’s well worth the time invested.

Take a peek below.

    UConn fans everywhere are puzzled as to how this guy didn’t get a shot over Zach Frazer this year

    I agree. How is this guy not starting?

    Now everyone can scramble to see if this guy is a freshmen, soph, junior, or what, because JOHN TAYLOR didn’t mention his class in this story.

    It’s still great stuff John, but we always need 1: position (which u gave us) 2: starting/backup (which u gave us) 3: class (which u didn’t give us).

    I can’t be the only one who is now wondering how many more years this guy will be at UConn.

    He’s listed as a redshirt junior on UConn’s official site.

    We agree as well. There are perhaps reasons but we don’t want to go into them here but he definitely has the touch on the football, feel for the field its depth and so many things needed in a quarterback but we are sure the coaches are keeping him aside to come on later once some other intangibles are matured. Great demonstration! Reminds me of a different sport and different age when Pistol Pete Maravich put on a basketball clinic which he also did blindfolded. If there was a 3 point shot back them he would have scored at least 20,000 more points than he did in both college and the pros.

    There’s a lot more to being a QB than the things he showed in that video, but it was an amazing set of tricks nonetheless. I’m sure the guy had plenty of takes that he actually missed the shots, but even so, I could do a hundred takes of each of those tricks and probably not hit even one. Impressive.

    Cool stuff.

    If he can read a defense and be that accurate with a quick release while large men are trying cripple him, he may be a great QB;)

    But can he make his free throws?

    i wonder how much more coed tail this guy got after putting out this video

  11. burntorangehorn says: Feb 9, 2011 11:44 PM

    pff, I imagine he has no problem hitting those shots, either. It just takes a little practice.

    “how is this guy not starting?”

    b/c standing in a practice facility throwing trick passes when you can edit out the bad ones for a video is not the same as standing in a pocket with a live pass rush & secondary & having to make a throw making split second decisions.
