By: SCOTT M. BURNSTEIN, August 15, 2021, 5:32 pm

The IHSAA’s Class of ’22 QB Sleeper Brigade

(alphabetical order)

Luke Hammons (Columbus North 5-foot-10, 175 pounds) — Efficiency, heart and huddle IQ are the three best attributes this spunky QB brings to the table.

Chris Mullen (Chesterton 6-2, 180) — Throws laser beams, dissects secondaries like a an ER surgeon.

Kale Payne (Danville 6-3, 185) — Checks all the boxes at the position, a lean, mean, gunslinging machine.

Brady Preston (Lafayette Jefferson 6-2, 200) — Everything you want in a signal caller, vision, arm strength and a take-no-prisoners attitude in the huddle.

Gehrig Slunaker (Mt. Vernon 6-2, 190) — Brings the pain every snap, defines the term “bomb first” in his approach to playing quarterback.

Carter St. John (Indianapolis Bishop Chatard 6-0, 175) —The consummate leader, competitor and fearless field general.

Brennan Stow (Lapel 6-3, 200) — Too-hot-to-handle, too-cold-to-hold type when the game is on the line.

Houston Swan (Eastern Hancock 6-1, 200) — Durable dime dropper and stat monger who just keeps getting better with age like a fine wine.

J’uan Swanson (Ben Davis 6-2, 180) — One of the most underappreciated gridiron talents in the circle city, get ready for more razzle dazzle and a ginormous senior campaign for the Giants.

Garrett Yoon (Lawrenceburg 6-0, 180) — Makes all the throws, makes all the reads, the definition of a primetime performer in the pocket.
