It's been a whirlwind couple of years for David Cornwell, who has moved from Nebraska to Florida and now to Oklahoma. After homeschooling recently, the 6-foot-5 Cornwell started at Jones in the second semester of last year. Now, he'll be the quarterback for last year's 2A finalists.

What's it been like moving around so much lately?

It's been really tough. It's been nice here lately to finally just get settled down and get back to the real game of football. It's such a breath of fresh air to be back doing that. It's been great being here in Jones so far. Coach (Dave) Martin's been really good to me.

You work with former OU offensive coordinator Joe Dickinson. How did that come about?

My dad was searching around on the Internet and found DeBartolo Sports and just said we were going to Kansas City for a camp. That's where it all started. He keeps up with my workouts and I work with him whenever I can. It's been great for me. Him and coach Martin have worked together to put me in a lot of great places. I couldn't ask for a better situation.

What defines your game as a quarterback?

I feel like I understand the game very well, my progressions and getting the ball where it needs to go. I've got a good arm, good size and just try to be a good leader.
