Richie Stammetti is one of the most underrated quarterbacks in this draft class. Stammetti has all the tools you would want in a quarterback; he has great accuracy, a great arm, and can run too! Let’s dive into his college career!
He started out his college career at JUCO Mt. San Antonio (Mt.SAC), he played both seasons for the Huskies. His freshman year, he threw four touchdowns in 8 games and threw for 544 yards. As a Huskies sophomore, he played nine games, threw six touchdowns on 766 yards.
“Reddie” to Roll
He started all 11 games under center for Henderson in his first season as the Henderson Reddies shot-caller in 2018. He completed 213 of 402 passes for 2459 yards, 18 touchdowns and 11 interceptions on the year. He also had four games with 300 or more yards passing, including a season-high 365 yards against Southwestern Oklahoma State.
In 2019, He played in 12 games and had a nice 139.2 passer rating, alongside 24 touchdowns, 11 interceptions and averaging 234.4 yards per game. The 6”2 210 lbs quarterback should be great on the next level!
Getting to Know the QB
I had the opportunity to ask Richie a few questions! Here’s what he had to say!
Q: What’s your ultimate football dream?
A: To play in the NFL. I know if I get my foot in the door that I can be successful. I just want an opportunity.
Q: Who was your favorite NFL player growing up?
A: I’m a huge Broncos fan, so I love Peyton Manning, but I love watching Drew Brees and Tom Brady and try to model my game after those guys
Q: What’s your pregame routine like?
A: I listen to Micheal Jackson and Stevie Wonder all day, and I have to have my Strawberry Lemonade Pedialyte lol. Then I go out a few hours before we do warmups and throw with one of the other QBs. We do some mechanics stuff, and then some far hash throws to get loose. So really, I just try to stay as calm and level headed as I can and just relax before game time.
Q: What was the hardest stadium you played at?
A: The hardest place I played was probably at Ouachita Baptist because it was a rivalry game, and there were about 8,000-9,000 people there, and the stands are really close to the field, so it was tough but awesome lol.
Q: Who’s your biggest inspiration?
A: Probably, my dad. He’s always been there for me and my dreams as well as my sister’s. He does everything he can to take care of his family, and he’s the best man I know.
Q: What number would you want your pro jersey to be, and why?
A: 14 just because I’ve had it since I’ve started playing QB. But I’ll really take whatever number they would give me
