Top 5 Returning CENLA QB’s Set High Standard’s for 2020
ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB) -A great group of signal callers return in the 2020 season, and they have high standards for themselves.
Tioga quarterback, and Ole Miss baseball commit, is just under 3,000 yards of a career high of 10,000 passing yards and 100 touchdowns. This shouldn’t be hard to do, after finishing the 2019 season with 2,514 passing yards for 31 touchdowns.
“You always want to be the best at everything you do, and I feel like I can be,” Indians quarterback, Blake McGeHee said. “I just need to go out there and play my best. I have a big milestone in my career, and I’m definitely going to try to surpass 10,000 yards,” he added.
The 5-10, 180 pound Leesville quarterback is just as lethal. Jacob Mount lead the Wampus Cats to back-to-back Class 4A regionals-passing for 2,104 yards and 20 touchdowns last season.
Alexandria Senior High’s senior quarterback is stepping in his last year with the same mentality-showing love to his offensive line. His offensive front made it possible for him to throw for 1,683 yards and 17 touchdowns while rushing for two on his own last season.
“The goal is still the same,” ASH senior quarterback said. “I always have to thank my O-line because I can’t do it without them. I just want to find a way to get better in every aspect of the game. I try to find things to constantly work on everyday,” he added.
With the help of Arthur Lavalais last year, Peabody quarterback, Tyriq Miles, was able to make big plays. Miles threw for well over 1,000 yards and 11 touchdowns-rushing for two. One of the strengths Miles has is his capability to scramble under pressure and connect with his receivers. However, combining his scramble abilities and building his passing skills in the pocket, will make him indispensable.
“This year, I’m trying to go for about 2,500 passing yards,” Peabody quarterback, Tyriq Miles said. “I’ve been working really hard, so I’m very confident,” he added.
One of the most slept on athletes in the area is Bolton quarterback, Jadarius Welch. In the past, the Bears have run a wildcat offense-leaving Welch no choice but to run the ball. Last year, he finished with 1,163 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns. This year, head coach Mark Teague is designing a offense allowing the senior quarterback to let it rip.
“Coach Teague installed stuff in the playbook for us to pass more this year,” Bears quarterback, Jadarius Welch said. “I’m looking forward to running CENLA as the top quarterback this season,” he added.
