Quoting Gaddis: “Everybody knows I am an athlete and I wanted to play quarterback. That was a big part of my decision. Clemson was actually the first school that came to me as a quarterback. Early in the year other schools wanted me as a DB and when they came to see me play they started to change their thought process on me. That is when my recruiting process really started to pick up as a quarterback.”
“I just need to improve on being a better quarterback. If you want to be the best, you’ve got to progress every year and every day make yourself better. I’ve got to improve my game everywhere.”
“Everyone calls me a playmaker. When stuff breaks down, I just go. I’m pretty good at reading coverages and taking what the defense gives us.”
