During organized team activities (OTAs) and mini-camp, we heard from Lance, his coaches, and most importantly, his teammates. The commonality in what they shared about the young quarterback was his confidence and leadership.
How does a young kid who didn’t see much playing time during his rookie season prepare for year two? It’s simply his confidence. Confidence isn’t something you develop overnight. Instead, it’s something that evolves through adversity.
Lance received a Division I scholarship to the University of Minnesota to play linebacker. However, he wanted to play quarterback, so he took his talents to North Dakota State, where he red-shirted his freshman season
49ers’ Fred Warner on Trey Lance: “He has everything you’d want in a franchise quarterback”
With Jimmy Garoppolo recovering from offseason shoulder surgery, second-year quarterback Trey Lance has gotten the bulk of the practice reps during organized team activities (OTAs). Not that he wouldn’t have even if Garoppolo were healthy.

The narrative between the national and local media has been vastly different. There has been talk of doubt in Lance among the national press, while local reporters haven’t pushed that narrative.
Lance’s teammates have
