On Day 2 of Cal's spring football practice, freshman quarterback Jared Goff got his first chance to show what he can do, and the former Marin Catholic High star said he didn't enroll in college early to be a spectator.
"I wouldn't be here if I wasn't trying to compete," said Goff, who arrived on campus in January. "We're all pretty even right now, so who knows what's going to happen."
Coach Sonny Dykes said Wednesday's practice was a bit sloppier on offense than Monday's, but he was pleased with Goff's first snaps in 11-on-11 drills after three other quarterbacks shared the reps Monday.
"There were times when he looked like a kid who ought to be going to the prom. And there other times when he looked like a Division I quarterback," Dykes said. "He's got a lot of talent."
Asked what he expects from himself as a collegiate rookie, Goff said, "I expect to be perfect. I expect to complete a pass every time."

San Jose was assigned defensive back Clevan Thomas, a 2012 AFL Hall of Fame selection and SaberCats legend, on a two-year contract.
"Being able to add a game-changer like Clevan is huge for us," coach Darren Arbet said. "He is the best defensive player I have ever had the pleasure of coaching."
Thomas, out of Florida State, is a five-time All-Arena selection. He'll soon join Arbet and former teammates Barry Wagner and Sam Hernandez in the AFL Hall of Fame.
San Jose opens at San Antonio on March 23. KNBR 1050 will be the radio home for all games.
