One of the state’s better small school players, rising junior quarterback Asher Link has helped lead Metro Christian Academy of Tulsa to a 6-1 start to the 2018 season.
At 6’1, 190-pounds, Link is a pass first quarterback who can also run when necessary. He has thrown for 1,260 yards, 12 TDs, seven INTs, and rushed for 327 yards and six scores.
He says both he and Metro have had success on the field this season, but still sees room for improvement with games left on the regular season schedule.
“It’s been a great season as a team,” Link says. “We’ve played some great games but we are still not where we would like to be yet. I think I’ve played pretty well this season but I’ve turned the ball over more than I had hoped.”
Link says his dad has been influential in his football career, as has his high school coach, Jared McCoy.
“Coach McCoy, has taught me a lot about defense and how to read it along with my quarterback coach malachi blankenship who helps me with reading defenses, footwork, and other quarterback coaching,” Link says.
Link attended camps at SMU, North Texas, OBU, and Tulsa and has drawn the most interest since from SMU.
“I’ve learned a lot about myself through this process and how to compete in a higher level with others rather than just myself,” he says.
I would say SMU has shown the most interest and I hope to go down to one of their games sometime soon.
Most people don’t know this about me but
I can be a pretty intense guy when gametime comes around.
My pregame ritual
Is a prayer with my boy Price. s/o to @p_all14
I don’t really have a favorite song but I do like drake, migos, and post malone.
My best career game was probably back in 6th grade, which was the year my team went to the championship but I had I think 6 touchdown passes in one of my games which was definitely one of my better games growing up.
My biggest weight room accomplishment
Was probably my 515lb deadlift.
Teammate most likely to be a star at the collegiate level
Ryan Johnson is my running back and the dude is a stud and could definitely be a college star.
Hardest working teammate
I would say Ryan Johnson is the hardest working guy on the team.
Players to keep an eye on
Ryan Johnson, Carson Callaway, and Price Allman
