Following a season where he finished with a Virginia High School League-record 4,434 yards of total offense and led Gretna to a Division 3 State Championship, quarterback Vic Hall is busy trying to make himself an even more dangerous performer. Specifically, he’s been working to improve his already impressive speed and quickness.
“I’ve been working in Acceleration,” Hall said. “It’s a training program that makes you faster and quicker. I do that three times a week. I haven’t run the 40 since I started doing it, but I think my time would be faster than 4.5.”
As for his team, Hall feels they will be right there in championship contention despite losing many players from last year’s squad.
“We’re looking good,” Hall said. “We’re harder at work than last year because teams are looking to knock us off. We lost a lot of players last year. We lost Marlon Moon, Brandon Turner, three offensive linemen, and a lot of players on defense. We have some young guys coming up and they are looking good. I think we’ll be good.”
The first commitment in UVa’s 2005 recruiting class, Hall has seen the class grow to 18 verbal commitments (not including Olu Hall and Branden Albert, who are attending Hargrave). He’s been very impressed with the talent Coach Groh and company have brought in.
“Everything’s looking real good,” Hall said of UVa’s 2005 recruiting class. “I’ve been checking up on TheSabre and they’ve been getting some great players. I haven’t seen any of the players play, but I think all of them are good. It’s turning into a real good class.”
He’s also happy about the offensive line talent the Cavaliers have landed thus far.
“I need somebody to protect me,” Hall said. “I’m real happy about that.”
In terms of other schools continuing to recruit him, Hall indicated that only one program other than UVa called him during the May Evaluation period – largely due to his commitment to Virginia. Right now, he says the only letters he receives are from the University of Virginia.
“Actually there were really no teams in contact with me [during the Evaluation period],” Hall said. “Maryland called me once but they were the only other school besides Virginia. The only letters I get now are from UVa. Coach Poindexter is recruiting me now and he sends me letters all the time. He asks how I’m doing and tells me how things are going with them. He told me to let him know whenever I want to come up for a practice. I am going to go up for one.”
