ROCHESTER– Nate Wahl from Northstar Football News caught up with Century QB and 2021 NFN prospect Nathan Eberhart. We chatted with Eberhart about his junior season, his recruiting interest, and much more.
Get to Know Nathan Eberhart
In his first year of being the starting quarterback for Century, Eberhart had a very successful first stint. He threw for 23 touchdowns, almost 2000 yards, and won all-district as a junior. His biggest strengths are staying in the pocket, making all range of throws with pure accuracy and great arm strength. You may have heard Eberhart’s name in early late December in our Way Too Early 2021 QB’s to watch here at Northstar Football News as we evaluated his highlight tape from Hudl.
Favorite Parts About Quarterback
Making big plays and being able to control the game and momentum is Eberhart’s favorite part about the QB1 position. Eberhart is a detailed oriented quarterback, as he also enjoys the small details that go into hitting his receivers’ routes. High-pressure situations also make Eberhart’s favorite lists of the quarterback position.
Eberhart hasn’t yet decided if college football is in his future, but he said it would be “amazing to do so” at the next level. This year will be a deciding factor on if Eberhart can improve the tools he started with last year with improvement in his accuracy and mobility.
Makings Improvements for 2020
Eberhart told us his footwork, identifying coverage before and after the snap and better placements on his deep ball are improvements Eberhart is making in 2020. Nathan’s already started his improvements this offseason by constantly working with his receiving core to work on those deep balls.
Nathan credits his big brother Aaron Eberhart for his love of the game. “he is always willing to watch and talk football with me” Nathan told Northstar Football News. Nathan always watched Aaron playing growing up which is the main reason why he picked up the game as well.
Looking Back At His Junior Season
As his first year under center as the starter for Rochester Century, Eberhart not only learned to trust his wide receivers, but also himself more. He also learned the leadership quality the quarterback position brings as “you have to never get down because your whole team is watching you,” Nathan told Northstar Football News.
