Olson happy with camp performance

The quest of Evergreen (Col.) Quarterback Trevor Olson for his first scholarship offer took a step forward on Saturday as he attended the Colorado State One-Day Camp in Fort Collins. The 6-foot-5, 210-pound signalcaller said he felt he did pretty well and gave the Rams' coaching staff something to think about.

"I thought it was a good camp," Olson said. "I thought it was very instructional. We started with testing and I wish I would have tested better, but I thought I did good in throwing and stuff like that."

Last season Olson rushed 56 times for 245 yards and five touchdowns. Through the air he completed 101-of-210 passes for 1,416 yards, 11 touchdowns and eight interceptions on an Evergreen team that went 4-6. This off-season he said he has some definite areas he is trying to improve, including staying balanced in his throws as well as dropping his elbow during throws.

"Coach Wilkinson said he could tell I have improved even from the last camp I had went to, their quarterback camp in May," Olson said. "He said he would be in touch with me and stuff like that."

Olson said he didn't come out of the camp with a scholarship offer, but said he does have a gameplan going forward.

"They (CSU coaches) told me last camp that they are going to keep their eye on me," Olson said. "I didn't have a strong season last year, so they wanted me to pull out a strong season this year and we'll see what happens from there.

"Basically just win," he added. "I want to get my completion percentage up and do what I need to do for my team to win."
