Today I caught up with Vic Hall, junior quarterback at Gretna High School in Gretna, Virginia. Hall, who is one of the top junior prospects in the state of Virginia, verbally committed to Virginia last week. He is the first player to commit to Virginia for the 2005 class.
As a sophomore, Hall passed for over 2,500 yards and 20 touchdowns and rushed for more than 1,000 yards and 12 scores. This season, he has thrown for over 1,000 yards with 15 touchdown passes and has rushed for close to 600 yards. During Gretna’s 61-21 victory over William Campbell last Friday, Hall rushed for 345 yards on 22 carries, scoring six rushing touchdowns.
Q & A with Vic Hall
Edge: You had a phenomenal performance last Friday when your team beat William Campbell 61-21. Did your commitment give you a little extra juice for that game?
Hall: Actually not really. They are a big rival game for us, and I was just ready to play. The line blocked really well and opened up a lot of holes. Our whole team played great, so I have to thank the team for helping me play well.
Edge: William Campbell running back Cedric Peerman has also committed to UVA. Did you get a chance to speak with him?
Hall: No I didn’t. I just played the game, and didn’t have time to talk to him after the game.
Edge: What do you think is the strongest part of your game?
Hall: I take what the defense gives me. I can pass or run. I like to run a lot but basically I’ll do whatever the defense gives me.
Edge: What’s the fastest you’ve ever run the 40, and how far can you throw the football?
Hall: My lowest time is 4.4 in the 40, which I was timed at this summer. I don’t know exactly how far I can throw the ball, but it’s far.
Edge: Why did you pick Virginia?
Hall: I picked UVA because I had visited them and I thought it was a good place for me to go to. The atmosphere is great, it’s close to home, and I felt comfortable there. I was excited when they offered me at the Wake Forest game.
Edge: Why did you decide to go ahead and commit early?
Hall: Virginia was just a place I really liked. It’s just a good fit.
Edge: Do you expect more schools to start recruiting you?
Hall: Yes, I feel like I will get more teams to recruit me next year. I’m definitely committed to Virginia, so it doesn’t matter.
Edge: Virginia recruited you as a quarterback. What have they told you about the quarterback situation?
Hall: I think Marques Hagans...
