Wore # 25 at HUB Football (April / 2021). Tall Windup Release QB which had a very good touch and a very good precision on the day. Took the whole day in stride, saw no sense of urgency during training for him. His approach was very relaxed and laid back throughout training. Had a high point of relief on every throw, which would prevent his balls from being tipped to LOS by defenders. Has a long winding release making timing slow even in a workout. Flat-footed launcher that does not generate speed or power from its base. He’s a better tactile passer, accurately hitting vertical throws on linebackers and turns in the area coverage and head-to-head exercise. Think of it as a vertical offensive camp arm in the NFL. In the CFL, seeing more than one type of backup not sure he could take the reins to be a starter with his elongated throwing stroke.
Bray attended Kingsburg High School in Kingsburg, California. As a senior on the Vikings football team, he led his team to a perfect 13-0 season throwing 3,321 yards with 41 touchdowns.
