Colin Feller was the first-ever freshman quarterback on Altus (Okla.) High School's varsity football team. As a junior, he transferred to Elk City High School.
His latest stop is at Ponte Vedra High School for his senior year.
While football is the same-at its core-wherever you play, there are a few subtle differences from the dry plains of Oklahoma to the humid sub-tropical Florida.
"It's hard to keep the ball dry," Feller said.
Humidity aside, there are adjustments to be made in different regions.
Feller cited the heightened speed and a more abundant spread offense in Florida's high school football.
"I am definitely trying to make myself more mobile," the senior QB said.
He went on to say that the defense had to respect the pass or the run in Oklahoma. He did not see many spread attacks during his time at the two Oklahoma schools.
Feller will have to be careful as he tries to become more mobile. He is coming off of a broken ankle that he suffered in week 9 last season. The good news: he threw a touchdown pass. The bad news: a 6'5 defensive lineman landed on him the wrong way.
"It feels like it's 100 percent," Feller said as continues to recover from ankle surgery.
Feller has been training with renowned quarterbacks coach Joe Dickenson and the DeBartolo group.
As he and the rest of the Sharks get ready for their season opener at Nease on Aug. 30, Feller has another thing on his mind: where he will play college football.
The senior has received interest from schools all over the country, such as: Oklahoma State, Oregon State, Missouri, Southern Miss, Michigan State and Florida State. He also received heavy interest from Virginia Tech.
