FSNextTV: Nick Fitzgerald

Nick Fitzgerald waiting his turn behind center and did his part to help his team at another positions. Fitzgerald is now making the most of his opportunity by leading Richmond Hill to a 5-0 start to open the 2013 season. See highlights of Fitzgerald in action in this FOXSportsNext video presentation.

Nick Fitzgerald is a real threat with the ball in his hands. A decisive runner, Fitzgerald is tough to contain once he tucks the ball and heads down field.

On the option, zone read or scrambling to extend the play, Fitzgerald shows excellent mobility and the ability to make sound decisions about when to go and when to continue to look down field for a target breaking open late.

As a passer, Fitzgerald shows nice spin and velocity on the ball. His ball placement on the deeper throws is an area for improvement, but that is not surprising for a first year starter.

The raw potential for Fiztgerald to be a solid college quarterback is apparent. He has the ability to make defenses pay with his arm and his feet.

His passing game will receive the needed polish when he gets on campus and gets college coaching, but Fitzgerald already possesses the needed athleticism to run the spread offense at a high level.
