GOLD AND BLACK ILLUSTRATED OLUME 26, ISSUE 5 53 Griffin Alstott passed for about 1,700 yards and 15 touchdowns as a junior for his father's Northside Christian team. "I'm a dual-threat quarterback, but a pass-first kind of guy," Alstott said. "When it comes to having to pick up a first down, I believe I can get those extra yards to pick them up. I think that's what defines me. I'm a hard worker, have been my whole life to get this kind of oppor- tunity." Purdue wide receiver target Travell Harris of Tampa is Alstott's 7-on-7 teammate in the summer. "He has a strong arm and with how he sees the field, everything's on point," Harris said. "He reads defenses perfectly. He's one of the best out there. "He can be a pro-style quar- terback or a dual-threat. He can throw it or run it. He has great footwork and the way he reads defenses, both in real games and what I've seen in 7-on-7, it's awe- some." Purdue will have just three scholarship quarterbacks on schol- arship in 2016 in sophomore David Blough, redshirt freshman Elijah Sindelar and true freshman Jared Sparks. 2017 FOCUS Alstott might not be the only quarterback Purdue takes in the 1600 South Creasy Lane Lafayette, IN 47905 1-866-906-6223 Bob Rohrman Subaru Buy a Subaru and Keep Indiana Driving.
