Bear Witness: Westwood QB Bear Fenimore is a Top College Prospect

Updated: Saturday, August 3 2013, 10:47 PM CDT
Westwood junior quarterback Bear Fenimore has football in his blood. And on his birth certificate.

"My grandfather's favorite coach was Bear Bryant," Fenimore told KEYE TV sports. "My mom thought it would be a unique name to have."

Named after the legendary Alabama and Texas A&M head coach, Fenimore is well on his way to making a name for himself. And to making an enemy in the mailman. With the bundle of letters to prove it, Fenimore is being recruited by pretty much every school except the electoral college. And based on early returns, his approval rating is through the roof.

Former NFL quarterback Sean Salisbury worked with Fenimore last spring. He, along with Bear's high school coach, gush about his arm strength and accuracy.

"He's got as good an arm as any of the college guys and some of the NFL guys I've seen," said Salisbury. "I think he's a Division 1 quarterback right now."

"He's got a cannon for an arm," said Westwood high school head football coach Anthony Wood. "There's things that he needs to get better at, but when you just put him out on the field and ask him to throw the ball in a spot he can put it anywhere you want him to."

Perhaps more impressive than his howitzer for an arm is how he got to where he is. Fenimore starting working with Heisman trophy winner Ty Detmer at the age of 8.

"Once a kid kinda has the skill level he does, it's a big part of it is mental," said Detmer. "There's a lot that goes into playing quarterback other than just throwing a hard ball."

He's got the game, he's got the name, and now he's got everyone's attention. So when will Fenimore make his college choice?

"I would prefer it be before the summer so i can help recruit and help make the best recruiting class as we possibly can," said Fenimore.

The mailman is counting down the days.
