You probably recognize the names of some of the top college quarterbacks from last year, players such as Ken Dorsey of Miami, Byron Leftwich of Marshall, Heisman Trophy Winner Carson Palmer of USC, and Chris Rix of Florida State, and you can probably come up with an extensive list of your own. You can also imagine the thrill these players experience every time they step on to the field on game day, at the helm of some of the top college football programs in the country. Day in and day out, these quarterbacks get to play at some of the top venues, with some of the best athletes in the country, with the hopes and dreams of thousands of screaming fans resting on their shoulders -- not a bad way to live at all!

Indeed, to look at the careers of these successful college quarterbacks is to see a perfect model of what it takes to be a great player at what is possibly the most crucial position on the football field. Day after day, week after week, these players are required to perform at the highest level, while producing consistent results that guarantee their teams a victory. Of course, the pressure is high; after all, there is always another player ready to take over their duties, should they be deemed unfit to hold this highest of responsibilities. On the other hand, the qualities of outstanding leadership that these players exhibit do not form overnight, but instead are the product of extremely hard work and dedication.

The Top College Quarterbacks: United in Determination To Be the Best

The best college quarterbacks playing today have not reached the level of the elite by accident. It is truly through a commitment of mind, body, and soul to improve their game that these players have reached such a high level of performance. It is also no question that these players have chosen to take advantage of every opportunity to increase their skill level, whether that be during practice, during their free time, or attending camps -- in essence, doing whatever it takes to push themselves to achieve their greatest potential.

The model is there; to follow it is to be prepared to commit yourself 100 percent to becoming the best quarterback you can be. If you truly desire to be one of the best, it's time to step up and take control of your own destiny. Many players have tried, and failed, to reach the level of the elite. Be prepared to go the distance, in preparation, hard work, and heart, and you too might someday experience the thrill of being one of the nation's top college quarterbacks.
