There are several factors that go into any quarterback experiencing success that extend beyond his own abilities. West Virginia quarterback JT Daniels will be the first one to articulate how much a quarterback can’t do it alone.
A major reason for Daniels finding success is the chemistry that he’s been able to quickly develop with his teammates, in particular his offensive line and center. WVU center Zach Frazier was asked about playing with Daniels during an appearance on the Big 12 Today show on Sirius XM’s college football channel.
“JT is probably the smartest quarterback I’ve ever been around, just the way he can see the whole defense, especially in passing downs. He can see the blitzes before it happens just by the safety rotations. Sometimes I’ll ask JT what he wants to do and he’s just so smart, normally we can get on the right call. And it’s been working pretty good so far,” said Frazier while praising WVU’s transfer quarterback who he has only been able to get to know since the summer.

Playing with a smart quarterback certainly makes a cantor’s life easier, but playing with a smart center can do the same for a quarterback.
