King George High School Quarterback Charles Mutter (2021 QB 6-2 198) is ready for the coming season. He holds offers from William and Mary and West Liberty, and he’s in position for more.
When showcasing his talents recently at the Gameday camp, he made some comments about a wide range of topics from his recruiting to workouts to everything in between.
“I’m really excited to be here. There’s a bunch of good quarterbacks here. I train with a bunch of them, actually. Some of them I’ve played with in high school. There is some great competition here today,” Charles said about the field of signal callers who were also invited to showcase their talents in front of scouts and recruiters. He acknowledges the difficult situation he and the rest of his peers are in when it comes to the upcoming season, with the uncertain status of the season. “I think the biggest thing for me is to be physical, being upbeat, just being the best person out here that I can be,” he goes on to say. Charles understands that he can’t control the other factors, like for example, the season, but he can control his attitude and how he comes off in the eyes of coaches and scouts.
He voices a small amount of frustration when it comes to his recruiting. He admits that while he only has two offers currently, he believes that has less to do with him and his talent, but more to do with circumstances in the world right now. He says, “(Recruiting has) been pretty slow, actually. I think it’s because of Corona, but I have two offers, West Liberty and William & Mary.” He really enjoys the fact that he is wanted by coaches, and that the sense of being wanted by a coach is one of the best parts of being recruited. He explains his thinking, “It feels amazing, honestly, it’s the best feeling in the world. For not only myself, but for my family to get a free education. It is such a huge deal to me, and one that I am not taking for granted.”
He offers advice for younger players who are a few steps behind him in this recruiting process, saying, “Just keep working, keep competing, being a great leader. Work ethic is truly everything, too.” His locker room presence is one of the things he prides himself on. He thinks that as a quarterback, he has a responsibility to lead his team by example, and by his actions. He also says that he is the type of player that is always looking to throw the football and to be in the weight room, working out, perfecting his craft.
When it comes to the possibility of not having a senior season, he talks about the fact that he is continuing to work, day in and day out. “Everyday, I’m working out. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, I’m trying to get better, and on the weekends, I’m doing showcases and other things like that for coaches,” he elaborates.
Charles Mutter, equipped with a rocket arm, tremendous size, and agility to escape the pocket, has everything a program wants in a quarterback. He combines his physical attributes with a hard working, tenacious attitude that drives him to bigger, better places. He always uses “us” instead of “me” when talking about his team and his goals. He strives for greatness, on and off the field. No matter what this season holds as far as actually playing or not, Charles Mutter will be ready for any challenge that comes his way.
