Flack proves a traveling man

Denver Quarterback Caleb Flack is seeing his life come back to normal after spending much of the last month driving around the country to football camps. The 6-foot, 200-pound D'Evelyn signalcaller said the trips were just a start of what will be a busy summer trying to get in front of college football coaches.

"I'm just excited for this summer," he said. "I have a lot of camps lined up for the summer. I have a team camp at CSU-Pueblo. We have a lot of team 7-on-7's and I 'll be at the CSU camps and camps at Air Force and (Colorado School of Mines)."

Last season Flack completed 185-of-279 passes for 3,069 yards, 29 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. Those numbers were enough to get him on the collective radar of college football coaches. Last month he attended a 7-on-7 at UNLV, an Elite 11 Quarterback Camp in Fort Worth as well as a Nike Football Training Camp.

"I got a chance to match up with some quarterbacks around the nation - mostly from Texas and Oklahoma and I felt like I competed pretty well," Flack said. "It was nice to play with those other quarterbacks and the fast receivers.

"It was good experience and to face up against the other quarterbacks," he continued. "They did a lot of pro-style drop backs and I don't get a lot of work like that at our school since our offense is the shotgun. I had a lot of footwork that I wasn't really catching up on, but I hadn't done it as much. I felt like I kept up with all the quarterbacks that have been doing that their entire high school career."

Flack is still searching for his first scholarship offer and said he is mainly getting letters of interest from schools around the country, including UNLV and Colorado State. Flack said he isn't getting too concerned about it and trying to maintain a level head as the process goes on - which is the advice of his brother.

"My brother went through the same thing when he was a high school senior and I think he got burnt out by it," Flack said. "I know he put himself out there so much. I am taking a more relaxed approach because I have seen him go through it."
