Utah quarterback Travis Wilson is feeling optimistic these days, as well he should. Afer a concussion ended his 2013 season with a few games still to be played, Wilson has started to feel really good about his health as the offseason creeps closer and closer to the start of the 2o14 season.
This week Wilson is helping out with the Elite 11 camp, one of the top offseason camps for the top high school football players from around the country. Speaking to NFL.com, Wilson said he is ready to get the juices flowing once more for the upcoming season.
“It was amazing, I’m super blessed to be able to play again,” Wilson said to NFL.com. “I know the doctors worked super hard to find the results and the school did a great job getting the right statement out. I’m just happy to be back and ready to finish out my career at Utah strong.”
Wilson’s head injury lingered into January, which put Wilson’s football career plans in jeopardy at the time, but Wilson was cleared to resume football activity for spring practices. Utah added Oklahoma transfer quarterback Kendal Thompson, but Wilson was later cleared to play during the upcoming season so Utah’s quarterback depth looks to be in better shape than it could have been. Wilson is in good shape too, which is even more important.
“As spring went along, though, I felt myself really separate from the other QBs,” Wilson said. “Hopefully I’ll keep on doing that in fall camp.”
Wilson had his ups and downs last season before being sidelined with a concussion. Wilson completed 56.1 percent of his passes for 1,827 yards and 16 touchdowns with 16 interceptions.
