Blake Bell may be known for the Belldozer, but he wants Sooner fans to know he has an arm too. Offensive coordinator Josh Heupel slightly smiled when he was asked, but he knew Bell could throw the ball when they recruited him at quarterback.
Now, Bell has 20 rushing touchdowns, including four last week against Texas and he's prepared to run his Belldozer short-yardage package against another school that recruited him. This one is actually from his home state: Kansas.
Getting out there and throwing is a bit different then getting out there and running things.
It was awesome (when Coach Stoops let me throw). I get to read an actual defense and swing it around a little bit.
It was more of sophomore year or my junior year in high school, I really threw it a lot and towards my senior year I started really running it a lot. Just putting on a little more weight.
I was a little stick back then. I was about 6-foot-6, 200 pounds.
(My throwing motion) has changed a lot. I almost had the ball down here almost like a Phillip Rivers. He pushes it a bit. Because I'm 6'6, I think that's why I did that which is still good, but I think I'm starting to get a little higher release. Coach Heupel's done a great job just giving me drills and stuff to work in the offseason
