"White 80, white 80, set, hut!" *****Sloter told me exactly why he had no doubts, as the clock wound down, that if he gave Adams a chance, his receiver was going to win the game for them."For me," Sloter said, "Jay Adams is probably the best jump-ball guy I've ever been around. He’s a guy that I knew if I get a one-on-one opportunity that I want to give him a chance in the end zone."This is a topic on which Sloter is well-versed, not just because he’s a quarterback, but because he was also a wide receiver in college. That was fine with Sloter until Monken told him he didn’t think he had what it took to be a quarterback, but that he thought Sloter could help USM at receiver.At 6-foot-4 and about 200 pounds with legitimate 4.6-second, 40-yard dash speed, Sloter decided to give receiver a go."So, I did that to try to help the team, and did that for three years," Sloter said, "and ended up starting some games." But he was still low on the depth chart. "So not a whole heck of a lot," he said.Then he received news that devastated him."Going into my redshirt junior year," Sloter said, "Todd Monken brings me in [to his office] and tells me I'm not good enough to play for him anymore and takes away my scholarship."As Sloter saw it then, he had two options: With just three credit hours left to earn his degree from USM, he could graduate and get a regular job or could bet on himself at a time when there is no transfer portal to help him, no immediate eligibility waiver to grant him permission to play and no real tape to show schools that he was an outstanding wide receiver — let alone quarterback.Sloter, who grew up in Georgia, still held onto his dream of not just being a pro athlete but being somebody’s franchise player — the guy, their guy."My childhood dream was always to be a professional athlete at different times.
