Burney’s Top Quarterbacks In The State For The 2016 Campaign
1 Rodney Hall (Detroit Cass Tech Sr.) – Has really developed into a fine field general, great composure, flawless footwork, consistent, accurate, nice touch…committed to Northern Illinois
2 Jairus Grissom (River Rouge Sr.) – Dynamic dual threat who will play in the secondary at the college level…’Nuff Said!
3 Kalil Pimpleton (Muskegon Sr.) – Pure and simple, an athletic freak that can turn opposing defenders inside-out at the drop of a dime (Will play in the slot at Virginia Tech)
4 Jack Bush (Chelsea Sr.) – Smart, gritty signal caller displaying a chip-on-his-shoulder mentality every snap
5 Jason Whitaker (Rockford Sr.) – Under-the-radar gunslinger, definition of an old school “drop-back dandy,” a cannon of an arm, moxie in the huddle

7 Dwan Mathis (Oak Park Soph.) – No. 1 sophomore quarterback in the state Pt. 2

9 Theo Day (Dearborn Divine Child Jr.) – Change of scenery will allow this strong-willed junior to flourish in the pocket
10 (tie) Mariano Valenti (Birmingham Brother Rice Soph.) – Expect BIG things from this versatile sophomore, natural leader and playmaker, tough as nails
