We didn't include him on our list of the 15 Players to Watch Out for in the 2013 College Football Season, but University of Central Florida quarterback, Blake Bortles, showed last night that he was more than deserving of a spot. Going 18-24 for 318 yards and 3 TDs in a 38-7 thrashing of the Akron Zips, Bortles was easily one of the top performers of the night across the entire country.
This play is a perfect example of just how dynamic Bortles was yesterday. After losing the football in the pocket, Bortles caught his own fumble, took off, and threw an absolute bomb down the field for a touchdown. Wow. Now, that's how you handle a fumble, Mark Sanchez.
Keep your eyes peeled for Bortles this season. If he keeps this up, then the guy could be in for a very special year.
