Original Print Headline: Q&A: Chas Stallard, Cleveland QB
Stallard, 6-foot-1 and 195 pounds, is a senior quarterback who completed 129-of-242 passes last season for 1,888 yards and 20 touchdowns. He also had 156 carries for 1,048 yards and 11 TDs. He was a part-time starter as a freshman and has been a full-time starter since he was a sophomore.
Did you enjoy competing in the Elite 11 qualifying competition at Cowboy Stadium (in Arlington, Texas) in March?
It was a good experience. It was a good chance to compare myself to other quarterbacks and see the little things that I need to do better to be an upper-caliber quarterback. I thought I threw well and was one of the top guys in the accuracy drills. I took a tour of Cowboy Stadium last summer and it was fun to compete there. It's my dream to play in a game there some day.
What are your summer plans?
I'm going to several one-day showcase camps and also play in baseball tournaments on the weekends. I also hope to work with (former Tulsa QB) Paul Smith again.
How is your team looking for the upcoming season?
We're going to have a lot of different receivers, but we've got four starters returning on the offensive line.
What is the most recent movie you've seen?
"The Avengers." It was real good with all the action stuff. It always gave you something to look at.
What is your favorite TV show?
Jon Gruden's QB Academy.
What is your favorite restaurant or meal?
A steak at Texas Roadhouse is hard to beat.
What is the most unusual thing you've encountered during recruiting?
I've received college letters from places that I didn't know even existed. I don't know how they even knew where I'm at.
What has been your favorite high school football moment?
Getting to play with my brother (Cy) when I was a freshman and sophomore, and throw passes to him."
