HUNTSVILLE, Ala. - Forrest Webber's bio on Twitter describes him best: "I like to throw things."
"I've just always been brought up playing sports. I used to go to Alabama games and apparently that was the only place I could fall asleep as a kid," Webber said. "I was calm. I just feel calm when I play sports."
Webber is the starting quarterback, and a starting pitcher, for the Randolph Raiders. So far in his senior campaign, the three-year starting signal caller has led the football team to the best start in program history.
"Anytime you have a three-year starter is good as a coach to have that" said head football coach Nick Flanagan. "Especially calling plays and to be able to be on the same page as him."
But when practice is over and the Friday night lights dim, Webber takes a break from the X’s and O’s to study a different kind of playbook.
For as long as he's played sports, he's also played the piano. Making plays and making music may seem as opposite as two endzones, but keys and chords have actually helped Webber conduct his offense.
"You have to practice a bunch to be good at it and memorizing pieces aren't easy, just like memorizing plays isn't easy. Learning a defense and learning how to beat a defense, it just helped me study."
