Texas continues to produce top QBs

September, 30, 2008

Rick Cantu of the Austin American-Statesman expands on our original statement made in the Texas intro of the Great State Debate, that the Lone Star State is really beginning to turn out some quality quarterbacks.

The emergence of 7-on-7 in Texas during the summer cannot be understated in this argument -- before the rules were relaxed and 7-on-7 became something Texas high schoolers could do about 10 years ago, the state was mostly known for hard-nosed, running football and producing top running backs and linemen. The beginning of 7-on-7 in Texas, combined with the explosion of the spread offense in high school football, has made Texas a fertile quarterback production plant over the past five to seven years and it doesn't look like it will slow down anytime soon.

• More tragedy in Florida, as a player at Orlando Liberty has passed away from unknown causes, reports the Orlando Sentinel.

• Staying in Florida, the latest AP state rankings are in. The 4A rankings are somewhat interesting, as FAB 50 ranked Tampa Plant is ranked No. 4 behind Dwyer and Nease, both of whom remain undefeated, while Plant's lone loss is to FAB 50 No. 7 Armwood, 9-2.

More games are being rescheduled in the Charlotte area, as a result of Friday's heavy rains.
