Turkey’s defending champion Koc Rams sign QB David Whipple

The defending Turkish champion Koc Rams have signed David Whipple from Miles College (NCAA Div. II).

Whipple, 6’1″, 180 lb from Gordon, Georgia enjoyed an outstanding career playing for the Miles College Golden Bears and in his senior year threw for 1,639 yards and 11 touchdowns while rushing for another 125 and four touchdowns.

Rams head coach John Booker is pleased with his new quarterback. When asked why he signed Whipple replied:

“His footwork matched his ability to read full field concepts. He has the athleticism to be dual threat but doesn’t rely on scrambling to make plays. His mechanics allow him to be comfortable in the pocket while being ready to throw at all times. In all of his game film he never panics when things break down.”

American Football International asked David about signing with the Rams and his journey.

AFI:  How did you end up signing with the Koc Rams?

Whipple: A: I first learn about the Rams through a recruiting site called podyum. It took a few months for someone to get back with me but know that patience is the key. I used that time to workout, run, and get in better shape.

AFI: Is this your first season in Europe?

Whipple: This is my first season in Europe. It’s actually my first time being in another country.

AIF: Tell us about your career at Miles College.

Whipple: I would like to say I had a successful career at college. I was able to win a Championship and get a ring.

AFI: What did you know about football in Europe before this?

Whipple: My thought was that football is football, pretty much the same. Speaking technical terms, honestly, I didn’t know too much about football in Europe at first.

AFI: What do you bring to the team?

Whipple: I bring a dual threat QB. Someone who can throw in any situation, in and out of the pocket. Someone that doesn’t mind running and sacrificing his body for the touchdown or the first down. I’m bringing a winning mentality because I’m looking to become a winner in this organization.

AFI:  What are your expectations?

Whipple: My expectations are to have and undefeated season. Then to go to the playoffs and win a championship.
