Teddy Bridgewater has caught the attention of many after his impressive two-game start to the 2012 season. Earlier this week former Ohio State great and Tennessee Titan called Bridgewater one of his dark horse Heisman candidates on Rivals.com. Now North Carolina head coach Larry Fedora is praising the quarterback that he is getting ready to face.
When being interviewed by the newsobserver.com, Fedora called facing Bridgewater a “scary thought” and said that he is “pretty special”.
“I think Charlie’s got to be very happy about the way that young man has performed at this point. I think he’s got to be excited about the future there at Louisville because the kid looks like he can beat you with his legs or he can beat you with his arm. Those kind of quarterbacks are by far the toughest to try to defend.”
Fedora went on to talk about how he wanted to defend Bridgewater and the U of L offense. And he pegged Teddy Five just right when he mentioned his ability to use his legs to avoid pressure and keep plays alive for throws down the field, not just running the football.
All U of L fans will agree about the excitement that Teddy Five has brought to the U of L program. The kid is just a sophomore and is as accurate of a passer as I’ve seen. Add in what he is able to do with his feet and it’s a dangerous combo.
At the end of the year you have to believe that with a good season, Bridgewater will be listed among the Heisman candidates.
