Texas football quarterback Quinn Ewers has surprised Longhorns fans with not only his decision to cut his iconic mullet but also with his dedication to a healthier lifestyle and improved physique.
In a recent interview with Bruce Feldman of The Athletic, Ewers revealed the reasons behind these changes.
Explaining his decision to alter his appearance and eating habits, Ewers emphasized the importance of his overall well-being.
“It was just the way my body felt,” he said. “I didn’t feel healthy. And since I have been eating better, I’ve noticed I don’t have that pressure on my joints. My back feels amazing. Since I have been eating better, I’ve noticed it also helps me mentally.”
The Texas quarterback, who now weighs 200 pounds compared to 218 pounds last year, is reaping the rewards of his weight loss both physically and mentally. Furthermore, Ewers expressed the positive impact of shedding his distinctive mullet.
“I was ready for it (the mullet) to go. I was tired of it. It was just a lot to keep up with, and it was time to grow up,” he stated.
Ewers’s transformation, both physically and mentally, appears to be complete. The burning question now is whether this metamorphosis will translate to success on the field for the Longhorns in the upcoming 2023 season.
The hype and expectations surrounding Ewers and the Texas football team are palpable, as they are the preseason favorites to win the Big 12. Additionally, Ewers himself is already being considered a potential first-round draft pick in the 2024 NFL Draft.
Considering Ewers’s commitment and the noticeable changes he has made during the preseason, there is genuine optimism that he will live up to the high expectations placed upon him.
The combination of his improved physical condition, healthier diet, and refreshed mindset could be the winning formula needed for significant success this season.
Longhorns fans eagerly await the kickoff of the 2023 season to see Quinn Ewers in action and witness the impact of his impressive offseason transformation.
It’s also worth noting that he’ll have one of the most famous backup quarterbacks of all-time, Arch Manning, peaking over his shoulder every step of the way.
We all know how great Caleb Williams and Drake Maye are.
Is Quinn Ewers the third best quarterback in the country?.. Or better?
