Schlichte has opened eyes at QB camps

West junior has opened some eyes at summer QB camps


He was timed at 4.8 seconds in the 40-yard dash, which he hopes to bring down to around 4.6. All high-school kids are expected to get stronger, though his arm strength is already pretty good.

A normal summer for Schlichte would have been a full season of baseball and a couple months of summer-league basketball, but his travels took away about a quarter of the baseball schedule and all but two basketball games.

"I'm still a three-sport guy," he said. "I want to keep competing is as many sports as I can. The (college) coaches like that because you're always competing year-round."

This season, Schlichte has high hopes for the Scarlets, and if he has another good season, major college programs will start making scholarship offers. He has no ideal place where he'd like to play college football, but he thinks he'll know the opportunity when it happens.

"When the right school comes around, I figure I'll make a decision," Schlichte said. "I don't want to wait 'til signing day or anything. I'll try to find the school that fits for me."
