Indiana High School football is coming quickly and again this season there are several excellent quarterbacks to watch especially the dual threat QB’s. So what is a dual threat QB? The ones that can hurt you both with their arm and legs!! And yes, many of these QB’s are better passers, but beware of their legs. Here are the ones to keep an eye on this season:
DANNY O’NEIL, CATHEDRAL. O’Neil leads the senior class after averaging 245.6 yards of total offense last season. O’Neil does it mostly through the air with 2,654 yards but did rush for nearly 300 yards in his junior season.
JACE STUCKEY, TRITON CENTRAL. Stuckey is a lot like O’Neil. The senior to be passed for nearly 3,000 yards and ran for 232 yards as a junior. Look for both numbers to increase this season.
CLAY MCCLELLAND, CHARLESTOWN. McClelland is a true dual threat QB. The senior averaged 259.5 yards of total offense with 1,769 passing yards and 1,085 on the ground last season.
MARSHALL KMIECIK, NEW PRAIRIE. Marshall can hurt you both with his arm and legs. Kmiecik passed for 1,356 yards and rushed for 1,383 his junior year. Those numbers will be fun to watch this season.
OWEN WANNER, SOUTH ADAMS. Wanner is a better passer but will run the football. Wanner threw for 2,330 yards and ran for nearly 400 as a junior.
DJ GORDON, PARK TUDOR. Speed is the name of the game for Gordon. Gordon passed for over 2,000 yards and ran for over 500 for the Panthers last season.
ELI EDWARDS, EASTERN. Another talented QB with the arm and legs to prove it. Edwards returns after throwing for 2,072 yards and rushing for over 400 as a junior.
TOM GOTKOWSKI, BEN DAVIS. Gotkowski will carry more of the load for the Giants this season after throwing for more than 2,000 yards last year. He didn’t run as much, but that won’t stop him from taking off under pressure.
MASON REYNOLDS, AVON. The senior to be is a true passer with over 2,000 yards through the air last season. Fall asleep and he will get you on the ground.
XANDER HUNT, VINCENNES LINCOLN. This multi-purpose QB can kill defenses after throwing for nearly 1,500 yards and rushing for almost 1,000 yards as a junior.
BRET PERRY, SEYMOUR. The Owls are excited to see what Perry will do as a senior after passing for nearly 2,000 yards and rushing for nearly 300 last season.
MONTEZ JONES, LAWRENCE NORTH. Jones can do it all with 1,583 passing yards and 611 yards on the ground as a junior. The Wildcats will get more from Jones this season.
JEROME WHITE, NORTH VERMILLION. White will kill you first with his legs (1,187 rushing) then his arm (1,010 passing).
JUSTIN CLARK, VALPO. Clark nearly hit the 1,000 mark in both passing and rushing as a junior. Clark passed for 1,034 yards and ran for 995.
MEMPHIS LOUDEN, BEDFORD NORTH LAWRENCE. This multi-talented signal caller is the key to the Stars offense. Louden passed for over 1,400 yards and ran for over 600 as a junior.
KOBE MEYER, HERITAGE. Meyer is another in the long line of talented QB’s that can do a little of everything. Meyer threw for over 1,000 yards and ran for over 800 last season.
BRYSON LUTER, LAWRENCE CENTRAL. Luter’s numbers will improve as a senior. Last season Luter passed for over 1,400 yards and ran for nearly 500 last season.
