Tuttle quarterback Jett Jobe is entering his senior season with a new coach and an expanded leadership role for the Tigers.
Jobe threw for 13 touchdowns and completed 67 percent of his passes during first season at Tuttle in 2013.
He’ll look to build on those numbers as a senior with hopes of leading Tuttle to a Class 4A title.
Q: You’ve got a new coach with (Brad) Ballard taking over, how has that transition gone?
A: It’s been good. We’ve got a lot of new coaches and it’s a lot of up tempo. They expect a lot out of us and we expect high things here at Tuttle.
You guys have always been a power run team, is that changing at all this year?
A little bit, but we plan to still run it with a good running back in Jason Biddy. We’ve got a good line with Kevin Osborn, Logan Johnston, and Brandon Mason, so we’ll still run the ball no doubt.
What are the expectations at Tuttle this season?
We expect high things. We have big tradition at Tuttle, so we expect to win. We go into every game expecting to win. That’s what we do at Tuttle.
What are some of the things you worked on over the spring and the summer?
It was a new offense, so that was probably the biggest thing just getting to know the offense along with my foot work and getting the ball out quick.
Are you taking on more of a leadership role this season?
Now that I’m a senior I would say it is different being the oldest kid out there. You have to be more vocal, have to show by example. I think the biggest thing is being more vocal as a senior.
