By: Steve Clarkson At some point, each quarterback must decide if they have what it takes to be A LEADING MAN. This process is very long, and most of the time it begins at an early age.

The quarterback controls what goes where on the gridiron. His focus is on his receivers down field, and the on-rushers become a swirl of colors beneath his main vision.”
