He's a home scholar (6-foot-3, 217 lbs.) who is the quick QB for a public school team - Nease High School in Jacksonville, Florida.
"It's a unique thing," Nease coach Craig Howard said. "I've never had a home-schooled player. His father is a Baptist missionary and their family has five children and Timmy is the baby. All of them have gone through the home-schooling from the time they started school until they graduated. All of them have gone on to college and graduated from college with honors, so it's a system that's worked for that family."
