Soph QB Highlights
« on: January 10, 2018, 06:44:05 PM »
Our Varsity QB this past year (who was my QB on my 2014 Unlimited Team that made it to Florida when he was in the 7th grade) did pretty well in his sophomore season.  He passed for right around 3000 yards, completing almost 2/3 of his passes, for about 12 yards per attempt and 18 yards per completion, 32 TDs and only 10 Ints.  Here is a highlight video he made:

Joe - I don't know if you remember how gawky and awkward he was then.  He has put in the work and come a long, long since then.  I'm super proud of him.

Yes, I do. Good job, it's easy to see the progress he has made.

...good looking receivers too.
Collect moments, not wins.

Yeah - #2 is a D1 prospect. #7 should play in college and would have had a lot more interest but for some injuries. #11 is a very solid HS receiver and should get some looks from colleges.  #13 and #1 are also above average receivers.  And our RBs, #4 and #5, were both pretty good catching the ball out off the backfield.  All of them, except #4 and #7, will be back next year. Having such a good group of receivers certainly helped our QB's development.

Yes, it helped him develop his capabilities.  But it did not make him better than he is.  All too often when a QB has good wide-outs, people attribute a QB's numbers to them, but if your QB doesn't have the what/why/how/arm/eyes/recognition to be able to get the ball to them, it doesn't matter how good the wide-outs are.  And while a good wide-out may be able to take a 6-yard out 60 yards, if the only thing the QB can do is throw short, then good defenses will take away the 1-dimensionality of his game. 

Your QB is a real talent.  He may have put in the work, but I've seen great talent wasted by bad coaching.  That's certainly not the case here.
