Wiregrass Ranch, Junior
Returns after a year of experience as the starter, bringing a strong arm, athletic receivers, a renewed offensive plan and the drive to snap the team’s 22-game losing streak.
A quarterback on the rise as the Cobras finally have depth and talent to surround him.
Though he had just 12 touchdown passes last season, expect that number to rise after a year as a starter under his belt, a better understanding of the offense and putting on muscle during the offseason.
Land O’ Lakes, Junior
May still share a few snaps with Ethan Weilant, but this southpaw is a pure passer with arm strength to back it up.
Bishop McLaughlin, Senior
Entering his third year as starter, and first in the FHSAA, he brings both speed and intelligence to the position, plus will be working with a couple of talented targets.
