"It's very fun. It's cool to be able to compete with these guys and I'm happy to be out here," Stanton said. "It's a lot of work. People think you get tired out here [on the field] but you don't even know how taxing it is in the meeting rooms. You're always working, you always have to be on your game and ready with an answer -- if not coach [Trent] Dilfer will get on you. We're ready for that and luckily he's been very happy with us so far and hasn't gotten on any of us. That just keeps the pressure on though because he's ready to push us to the next level.
"I think all of us have done really well so far and it's a tough competition."
The 6-foot-2, 225-pounder looks like a linebacker and has earned the nickname "Johnny Tebow" due to his stocky build and somewhat elongated throwing motion. As someone who won a CIF championship last year using his legs to keep a play alive as much as his arm, he's improved noticeably as a passer and kept pace with other highly ranked quarterbacks without any issue. At the same time, the Elite 11 offers the opportunity to throw the ball around hundreds of times a day and the affable Californian is prepared to deal with wear and tear on his arm the best way he can in order to get the reps he needs to improve.
Given his progress at the Elite 11, perhaps it's the Nebraska offense that will have to keep up with Stanton's progression as a passer first.
