TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- With the future for Florida A&M football looking as bright as it is, it's only fitting they call their quarterback "Sunshine."

Incoming junior signal caller Ryan Stanley dazzled in his sophomore campaign, passing for 2,190 yards and 16 touchdowns to just seven interceptions.

Even working behind a somewhat depleted offensive line, Stanley posted those numbers while throwing just seven interceptions and being sacked nine times.

Heading into 2018, he'll look to replicitae his performance from last season, and then some.

Stanley now takes on a whole new responsibility; learning a whole new playbook. With new head coach Willie Simmons implementing a spread offense that'll be quick and, if all goes will, will be able to score at will, this could prove to be a truly breakout year for the Rattlers' signal caller.

For Simmons and FAMU fans, "Sunshine," especially with his escapability from trouble in the pocket and the ability to make plays with his legs as well as his arms, could be just what is needed for wins in 2018.
