The Year of The Quarterback

by Paul Heling

The 2013 High School Football Season is on in the Fox River Classic Conference and this may well be the year of the quarterback. Nearly all of the contenders are pinning their hopes on signal callers, many of them underclassmen, but who have piled up a ton of snaps already in their careers. 

Heading the list could be James Morgan of Ashwaubenon.  He has collegiate size at 6-4 and 200 pounds with a strong arm and plenty of mobility.  He took over last season for the Jaguars early in the campaign and the sophomore got better every week. Now a junior, James is looking for big things in head coach Mark Jonas’ spread offense with plenty of skill position players at his disposal. There’s Logan Szymanski at Pulaski, a true dual threat who was also one of the top rushers in the league last year. Preble will rely on speed versus size with Will Daniels, a speedy quarterback with a sneaky dangerous arm.  At Notre Dame, Charlie Rotherham is a legacy.  His father Kurt played the position for the Tritons and his uncle Greg was a decorated receiver. Rotherham is another underclassman with lots of experience.  Bay Port is turning its hopes to Alec Ingold, a dynamic running back as a sophomore, will now quarterback the Pirates.

Huge passing numbers are rare at the prep level, but this fall, there should be plenty of excitement in the air.
