Brock Curtin ICCP QB/ATH Class Of 2026
Brock Curtin, how has your offseason been so far?
The offseason has been going great. My teammates and I have been dedicated to getting in the weight room since last December, and we’re looking forward to starting summer camp soon.
How was your freshman season?
Heading into the season I was recovering from a summer injury, but the 2022 season turned out to be a special year. I’m proud that I was able to contribute at all levels of the program (freshmen, junior varsity, and varsity) throughout the course of the season. Being part of the state championship run was an incredible experience and one that I will never forget.
What does football mean to you?
I enjoy everything the sport has to offer. I think the most special aspect of football are the relationships I am able to make throughout the course of a season both on and off the field. I have been lucky to be around guys like Dennis Mandala, Nate Omohlo, KJ Parker, JP Schmidt, John Goggin and so many more I could name….I have also been very lucky to be surrounded by so many expert coaches throughout my time playing football. Each player & coach has been incredibly welcoming and supportive as I continue to develop and learn from them.
What should college coaches know about you?
I am driven to be the best I can possibly be and that I enjoy the process that goes into year-round improvement. I have been told by my youth and HS coaches that I am a ‘team first’ type of player. I have been around the game since I was born and I look forward to playing at the college level. In addition to football, I perform well in the classroom and I am a multi-sport athlete.
What do you feel is your strongest trait on the football field?
My strongest traits on the football field are my football IQ and work ethic. As a QB, I have progressed well in not only grasping my team’s playbook but understanding defensive coverage progression reads and movement reads. I have been around the game forever and my knowledge has grown a lot in the last couple of years. My football IQ and work ethic position me to be a leader on the field.
What do you like about playing QB?
I like the responsibility that comes with being a QB. I enjoy having the ball in my hands on every play and making decisions to put my teammates in the best position to make plays & score points. Throwing a well-timed ‘strike’ to a receiver is also a great feeling.
What part of your game are you working on in the offseason?
As a QB I am always working on my accuracy and timing in throwing the ball. Additionally, I have been working on my quickness and ability to escape the pocket and extend plays outside of the pocket when needed. I also played DB last season, and I feel my improved speed and time spent in the weight room will help me on the defensive side of the ball this upcoming season as well.
What goals do you have for yourself this upcoming season?
My number 1 goal is to improve every day.
What is your favorite route to throw to?
I enjoy throwing all routes. The comeback, skinny post and corner routes are probably near the top of the list.
