While this may not come as a surprise to some Buckeye fans, Oakland Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor says nobody taught him how to throw a football.
Pryor is extremely talented and brough home some big wins for the Buckeyes but when you look back, it was mainly because he was an amazing athlete.
He told the Bay Area News Group that he worked with former major-league pitcher Tom House (he’s a throwing guru who has worked with Tom Brady) on fundamentals, and is working with offensive coordinator Greg Olson John DeFilippo to continue to learn to be a passer.
“I never really knew how to throw a football before,” Pryor said, according to Bay Area News Group. “It’s coming along. I’m getting way better. I probably missed four or five throws out of 80, 85 throws today. I might ice my arm as a precaution tonight, but it feels great.
“They’ve got me going in the right direction to be a pretty good quarterback who knows how to throw the ball.”
