Texas’ Quinn Ewers Talks About Taking Over The Role In A Recent Interview

In the coming weeks, Quinn Ewers will be taking over the starting quarterback position for the Texas Longhorns, one of the most important positions in the state.

Despite the fact that he is young, Ewers carries an air of confidence and has a laid-back personality, but he is aware that leading a team sometimes requires him to step out of his comfort zone because of the responsibilities involved.

Having been a quarterback, it’s obvious that you can’t always be like that, and it took some time to get to know the guys,” said Ewers.

There was a good friend of mine from Southlake, Andrej Karic… He introduced me to a lot of these guys, and he helped me develop friendships with them.

As I got to know them, it just really broke out from there. I now have a lot of good relationships, and I now have a lot of relationships that will last a lifetime.

It has been less than a week since Ewers made his debut as a starter for the first time since the 2020 6A Division 2 title game, and he says he doesn’t feel any nerves about it.

There will be butterflies in the locker room and with that first play, but after that, it’ll be back to basics.” Ewers told reporters. “Having said that, I’m not anxious,” Ewers said.

Ewers has been receiving praise from the head coach since he was named as the starter in practice.

Sarkisian said that some of his throws on third downs and some of the plays he made in the pocket were like, ‘OK, let’s take another step here. I am pleased to see that we are beginning to make the strides that I hoped for.”

On Saturday, Ewers and Texas will scrimmage prior to the start of their game week schedule.

The Longhorns will make their regular season debut at Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium on Sept. 3, when they play Louisiana-Monroe for the first time. Kickoff is at 7 p.m. The game will take place at Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium.
