“Offensively we’ll stay with what we’ve done. This program’s stepped up by leaps and bounds with the
spread formation,” Short said.

As a junior Steinmetz had 1,877 yards passing and 16 touchdowns. He also added 777 rushing yards
and four touchdowns. Steinmetz is No. 39 on the Sentinel’s Central Florida Super60 list. He can make
most of the throws asked of him and Steinmetz has improved his accuracy since last year. He prefers
running rather being a traditional drop back passer. The Jackets will try to get to him early and put some
pads on him to rattle him.

“I hate dropping back,” Steinmetz said during the third annual Sentinel Varsity Football Media Day. “I
love being able to roll out. I am able to avoid taking hits a lot better. I feel like it opens things up more. If
nobody is open, I am capable of lowering my shoulder and picking up a few extra yards.”

Steinmetz, the 2010 Osceola News-Gazette Offensive Player of the Year said he’s been playing
quarterback for only three years, since the eighth grade, when a spot opened up on his youth league
team. His older brother, Richard, was a defensive lineman for the Bulldogs. His younger brother, Brian,
is a freshman who threw his first varsity TD pass against Gateway in the season finale.

“I played everything, but when quarterback opened I seemed to do pretty well, so I stayed there,” he
said.

On offense the Bulldogs have a solid running game with junior running back Eric Pfeifer. Pfeifer had 250
yards rushing and four touchdowns last week in a win against Agape Christian. Steinmetz completed 14
of 20 passes for 170 yards and two TDs in the win.
