Biggest drawback is maintaining a positive attitude and melting down in tough games or after a mistake is made. Any thoughts, advice is appreciated.

To me, this is more important than any of the stats listed above. Let's be honest: bad things are going to happen on the gridiron. I want a leader who will keep my team encouraged and help them get back into the game. As a Single Winger, this is a *must* for me.

Based on what I’ve seen in our leagues, I’d say he’s exceptional. With those numbers and a 50% completion rate, I don’t think we’d ever lose.

A few years ago, we scouted a future opponent who passed around 50% of the time. QB was the best we’d ever faced. I told Mahonz that a youth QB who completed 50% of his passes could be considered “elite”. I also told him that this kid would have to complete 50% and no INTs for their passing game to be a factor. The kid ended up 12 for 25, 1 TD, 1 INT and 2 sacks. We won 3 TDS to 2.

Different Lenape Valley - Lenape Valley Indians are in Chalfont PA, between Allentown and Philly.  Their JV team went to Disney in 2018 according to their web site.
Oh.

That's the trouble around here -- so many things named after geographic regions named after Indians that someone on any edge of it takes a name like they're in the center.  Take Minisink for example.  And I keep running into street names that I thought I left back in the Bronx.

Since the Wikipedia entry on Lenape shows them having run all over the Delaware and Hudson valleys, practically any valley in NJ, southern NY, eastern PA, or Delaware could be called a Lenape Valley!

I believe we are saying the same thing Dave.

Maybe so, Scott.  But all I know is, at this point in the proceedings, 75% of those who've voted agree with me.  Or, I'm being outvoted 75% to 25%.

Yes, but most often kids are acting out based on how they're being dealt with.  I can't tell you the number of times I've seen tots fall on their face but didn't cry until they saw the parent rushing to their aid.  I've had high-drama, disagreeable, prima donna kids at every age group.  And the fix has always been pretty straightforward.

We're talking about a 7th grader.  I believe we are saying the same thing Dave.  As Barney Fife would say, you gotta "Nip It In The Bud"!!

I can win with an average ability QB who, above all, maintains his composure and executes under fire.   I really dont want to sit an wonder what will trigger one of the meltdowns.

The thing that stands out as a concern is his propensity for Drama when things aren't going his way.

For comparison, my 10 year old QB this past season was 44-86, 664 yards, 7 TDs, 2 INTs, and 10 PATs (we get 2 points for a PAT pass and 1 for a PAT run, so we throw it a lot after TDs).  He rushed 44 times for 167 yards, 9 TDs, 1 PAT, and lost one fumble on the season.
