Get to know Arizona Wildcats QB Daxx Garmanby Brad Allis on May. 27, 2011, under Arizona Wildcats Football, Sports
While most other 2011 freshmen quarterbacks were studying for midterms or worrying about spring break, Daxx Garman was participating in the University of Arizona’s spring practice.
While those other quarterbacks were getting ready to graduate and prepping for the prom, Garman was learning the playbook and prepping for the 2011 season.
Garman graduated early from Southlake Carroll High School in the Dallas area and enrolled at Arizona in January.
That’s the good news. The bad news is that 6-2 Garman was ruled ineligible for his senior year after moving from Oklahoma to Texas for violating transfer rules. As such, Garman did not get to play at all his senior season.
“We’re disappointed he wasn’t able to play this year and that was kind of a sad thing,” Mike Stoops admitted.
The good news is he essentially gets a jumpstart on his college career and will actually get 5 ½ years on a college campus.
“It’s great to get six months ahead of everybody and really pick up on the offense so I really know what I am doing,” Garman said. “Just being out here learning just what to do.”
Garman did not get a ton of reps during the spring, which was no surprise considering there were three seniors on the roster, but did get invaluable lessons on how to handle himself and how to prepare.
“I have three seniors ahead of me and they are really helping me out,” Garman explained. “When one of them is in, the other two tell me what to do, what they’ve done in the past and what to look for here. They all three have really helped me out.”
