Curtis brings a swagger to the Orange

Kristofer Curtis of Fayetteville (Ga.) Fayette County gave the Syracuse Orange a verbal commitment at the end of October and he is now ready to sign his letter of intent to play for the Orange.

"It is an unbelievable moment in my life. It has been what I wanted to do ever since I started playing football back in eighth grade. I can't wait for it to get here."

Over the past year or so since Syracuse had first contacted Curtis the prospect has grown into a bigger fan of his future school.

"Well first and for most I have been truly blessed to be so fortunate to get a scholarship from Syracuse. Academically they are great and the football program is on the rise, I love what Coach Marrone has done. I just can't wait to be a part of it next season."

Once at Syracuse Curtis will be lining up on the offensive line and he feels that he has some solid items that he can offer.

"As an offensive lineman I feel that I bring a passion for the position and a bit of a swagger to the offensive line."

Also one activity that helps him on the offensive line is basketball and he feels that being a basketball player in high school will help him in college.

"First and for most basketball helps me with my footwork in football. For an offensive lineman good footwork is one of the most important things you need, it also helps me with my change of direction and conditioning. It does not help me strength, but that's what I have the weight room for."

Today he gets his letter of intent signed and out of the way. The next big move is actually coming to campus in the summer and the three star prospect is looking forward to what awaits him.

"I am looking forward to the challenge really. I have always been an individual that loves to be challenged. The next thing for me is taking that step into college football."
