Examples of passer in a Sentence

  1. Bobby Portis:

    He’s another big that we really needed, we were thin on big men and he came in and did his thing. We can feed him in the post and he’s a great passer. He can shoot the ball and get to the free throw line. He can do a lot of things and he’s still a force.

  2. Ed Hochuli:

  4. Cassius Marsh:

    They asked me to do a bunch of stuff that I had never done: covering running backs and receivers and basically almost never rushing the passer, which is what I did in playing defensive line, they don’t have fun there.

It made me for the first time in my life think about not playing football because I hated it that much.

  5. Dennis McCarthy:

    If you're a really good passer in football, you line up the axis of rotation with the axis of symmetry of the football, and it doesn't wobble.
