It has been a bumper crop for quarterbacks this fall in Guilford County…..Our county agent, is going to have his hands full, trying to keep up with all of this talent….We got to talking about this topic a little bit back on Saturday night, after all the dust from Friday night’s games had settled, and this is what we were saying, along with the crowd that had gathered here at the site and around the county agent’s tractor….
We have what might be the best crop of QBâ€™s in the state right here in Guilford County, with James Summers(Page), Jeff Sims(Smith; with a real soft touch and right on the moneyâ€¦), Luke Heavner(Ragsdale), Drew Adams(HP Central), Jamie Cunningham(Southern Guilford), Matt Pawlowski(NWG), Daniel Downing(Northern Guilford; might be the most underrated, but puts up huge numbers from the left side), Airyn Willis(SWG), Demetrius Dick(Dudley), Jake Simpson(Grimsley), Josh Thompson(WG), and others at NEG(Tyler Martin), SEG and EGâ€¦..May have left someone out if so, SORRYâ€¦.
Young QBâ€™s are on the way like Jordan Putnam at Page, Garrison Herndon at Ragsdale, Austin Proehl at WG and even Simpson has to be considered a young gun at Grimsley, since he’s only a freshman and Kalen Pratt(JR) will be ready to take over at Smith next year and Richard Hayes is already taking #1 snaps as a sophomore at Dudley with Dick on the DLâ€¦.
Putnam is doing a super job for the unbeaten Page JVâ€™s at (5-0) and he has seen Varsity time in several games this year with Parkland and last Friday nightâ€™s Western game being ones that I am aware ofâ€¦.Putnam a sophomore understudy, for James Summers this year, and even more so next season and then the full-time man, in Jordan Putnamâ€™s senior yearâ€¦..
I saw Herndon throw a TD for Ragsdale late in the game last night with WS Parkland and he is another young QB that is going to be real goodâ€¦.
