Brent will also use this summer to make some improvements for the upcoming season. "I have to keep working on my footwork and I have to always make sure I'm in good shape." In order to stay in good shape, he spends a lot of time in the weight room and can already bench press 360 pounds. "The summer before my freshman year, the varsity coach said I might play varsity so I realized I had to get stronger," said Qvale.
He did move up to varsity in the middle of his freshman year and has been selected 1st Team All-State each of the last two seasons. "It was nice to make it for a second year in a row," said Qvale. "It means a lot to know you are one of the top guys in the state."
While Brent has offers from North Dakota State, North Dakota, Montana State, and Montana, he expects that could change in the next few weeks. "Coaches from both Iowa State and Nebraska have been out to see me recently," he said. "Iowa State Assistant Coach (Jeff) Koonz talked to my coach and told him they need a tackle. I'm guessing it might come soon."
Qvale said he's not sure when he will make his college choice but it could come sooner than later. "I'll make the decision whenever I feel ready," he said. "If one of these schools offers, I might take it and commit. If not, I might wait until after my senior season."
