Mettauer: A program that will develop my skill set to its fullest and where I have potential to lead my team as the signal caller the earliest along with a great education.

Question: Who is your biggest mentor?

Mettauer: My brother. Mckade has taught me how to put the work in to achieve my goals. I’m from a family of very focused, hard working people.

Question: Is there anything else you want Red Raider Nation to know about you?

Mettauer: I started playing tackle football in the 2nd grade. I wanted to be a QB but My brother and I were always so big they put us as offensive & defensive lineman and linebackers. I always had this desire to be a Quarterback so I could control the game, but in little league i was always too heavy to touch the ball.

In 7th grade, I started getting taller and thinner and they put me at receiver. During basketball season the 8th grade quarterbacks coach saw me playing and said “you have great feet.. can you throw the ball?”. Starting 8 grade I was about 6’3 and finally got my chance to play quarterback although I shared the position. My friend threw the ball and I ran the ball almost every time!

I had a very successful year but did not get out of it what I needed to play QB in high school. COVID came in March of my 8th-grade year. My brother and sister came home from college and we all quarantined together. Luckily I had my brother, who is starting right guard at Cal, home to be my built-in receiver. He got really good at running routes & I got very good at throwing the ball. My brother & my quarterback coach threw with me almost every day during quarantine, but I still didn’t have much game time experience. I had a goal list for the summer snd I worked very hard to reach all of them!

Guns Up Nation thanks Mabrey for his time and effort with this interview! Guns Up!

Wow! Such amazing dedication! I really hope that the next two seasons will be ones where he can be allowed to develop his QB skills. Maybe after this coming season, we can get to see some video of his work behind center.
