STATE CHAMPS! SCOUT TEAM: The Quarterback Report >> The low-key launchpad breakdown
Burney gives you ten quarterbacks about to low-key launch their squads into the stratosphere this fall:
Casen Armstrong (Kent City 6-foot-0, 170 pounds Sr.) — Stone cold, like the ice cream shop!!
Noah Arsulowicz (Grand Rapids West Catholic 6-1, 175 Jr.) — Getting ready to be the gold standard under center in the GR, take it to the bank!!
James Burnley (Oak Park 6-2, 185 Sr.) — Will be the breakout star in the OAA Red this season, a dynamic, fire-breathing dragon of a dual-threat field general about to be let loose on Oakland County.
T.J. Coon (Portage Northern 6-2, 185 Sr.) — Burn baby burn, this kid is about to flame-throw his way through his senior season.
Trae Knight (Ostego 6-0, 170 Sr.) — Quiet assassin on the verge of a mega moment that he will no doubt seize in spades. Elusive and smart is a dangerous combo in the RPO era.
Mark Konecny (Mona Shores 6-0, 180 Jr.) — The Shores won’t miss a beat with “Special K” taking the reins; this young buck is about to ball out in a major way.
Al Money (Midland 5-10, 170 Sr.) — Human ATM on the field, he’s what they mean when they talk about a primetime playmaker sparking an offense.
Ayden Oliver (South Lyon East 5-11, 175 Sr.) — A natural leader and swag nasty in the huddle, the kind of signal caller who spits nails and gets the job done by any means necessary.
De’Ovion Price (Port Huron 6-0, 175 Sr.) — The most electric playmaker in the pocket you don’t know yet but will very soon, be afraid, be very afraid!!
Ian Sanders (Grandville 6-0, 180 Jr.) — G-Force gunslinger in the making!!
Expect a big year from Waterford Mott senior Jack Beno, who comes over from Novi Detroit Catholic Central. Beno (5-10, 175) can thread a needle and scramble as well as any QB in the LVC.
