Macomb County Preseason 2021 QB Power Index

1 Ryan Schuster (Chippewa Valley 6-foot-2 Sr.) — Committed to Lafayette, Schuster is the most underrated gunslinger in the state.

2 Deion Black (Warren Michigan Collegiate 6-3 Sr.) — The genuine article, a prototypical primetime playmaker in the pocket who is a real diamond in the ruff recruiting wise.

3 Omari Embree (Warren Woods-Tower 5-9 Sr.) — Committed to Army, Embree will head to college as a skill position recruit, but is one of the more dazzling prep dual-threat field generals in Metro Detroit.

4 Brady Drogosh (Warren De La Salle 6-4 Jr.) — Checks all the boxes, finished with flair as a sophomore on his club’s run to the D2 final four, ready to churn-and-burn in ’21 and make a name for himself as one of the Pilots all-time great signal callers these next two years.

5 Biagio Madonna (Sterling Heights Stevenson 6-1 Sr.) — Tough as nails, mad swagger at the controls of an offense, in the midst of building a legacy for himself as one of Macomb County’s better QBs of the New Millennium.

6 Anthony Benard (Grosse Pointe South 6-1 Jr.) — This two-sport dynamo is locked and loaded for a monster year on the gridiron, probably headed to play hoops in college, however, can do equal damage dissecting defenses in the fall as a fierce field general.

7 Ronnie Jackson (East Detroit 6-1 Sr.) — Slick moves, accurate arm, “It” factor in the clutch.

8 Robert Salter (Roseville 6-0 Sr.) — Cool as the other side of the pillow slicing and dicing defenders with his arm and his legs.

9 Brady Berezowsky (Fraser 6-1 Sr.) — The Ramblers’ own version of Brett Favre, gutty, smart, out-wills the comp.

10 Logan Rolfs (Romeo 6-1 Sr.) — The blood-sweat-&-tears type, the ultimate competitor.
