A defensive nightmare is any quarterback that can use their legs to escape the pocket and make a big play. Stevenson Jr Patriot Adam Foley is a dual-threat slinger who always keeps defensive players and coaches on their toes. The 12-year-old has played football for nearly four years now, and his ability to adapt to one of the most challenging positions in all of sports is remarkable.

 

Foley has also been successful in his young career so far; this past year, his team won the 3A TCYFL middleweight championship. However, the youngster knows that football doesn’t come lightly, and he puts in the hard work to make sure he performs every time he steps on the field. He consistently works on his throwing and footwork with his dad Mike Foley, and head coach, Joey Weber.

While you never know if Foley will throw or run it, his ability to launch a deep ball is lethal. He can throw up to an astounding 45 yards, which is a game-changing ability because a cornerback or safety will have to keep up with whatever receiver may come down with that pass.

 

Foley’s favorite style of play is a spread offense because it gives him the chance to use his mobility. When the wide receivers are spread out, the corners will be too, leaving him the opportunity to pick up big yardage to get the first down or take it to the endzone. His favorite player is former Oklahoma Sooner and current Arizona Cardinals Quarterback Kyler Murray. Everyone knows when Murray escapes the pocket and uses his legs for those who watch the NFL, an explosive play is bound to happen. Like Foley, his speed is elusive; he runs a 5.30 40 yard dash which is incredibly impressive for not being a teenager.

 

Foley is at his best when everyone is watching and the bright lights are on. He loves to showcase his talent, especially for those who doubt him. It builds his motivation; those who say he’s too small add the determination that he puts on the field.

 

He’s also very good in the classroom, as he earns A and B’s consistently. A coach wants their players to be exceptional on and off the field, and Foley fits that bill. His goal one day is to play for either Oklahoma, LSU, North Carolina, or Notre Dame. On top of that, winning the Heisman Trophy and a national championship would put the icing on the cake. With his intensiveness and will to win, anything is possible.
