Class of 2017 Preview

Share | facebooktwittergoogle_pluslinkedinmail

The class of 2017 has a total of 5 field generals in the JenkinsQB program. This class is an interesting blend between pure pocket passers and dual threat quarterbacks.

Braden Cook & Coach JenkinsBraden Cook – Rangeview High School

Braden is a prototypical pocket passer. He is everything you want in a young QB standing at 6′ 3″ and still growing. He is built from his core through his legs which every great passer is. He has electric feet inside the pocket and can move well enough outside the pocket to present a challenge for opposing defensive coordinators. With the athletes he has around him don’t be surprised when come next fall you see Rangeview high school making a run in the state playoffs.

Connor DeschConnor Desch – Arapahoe High School

Connor is a passer who has made extreme progress in the last 8 months. A lot of Connors growth is due to his dedication to working in the weight room. Connor has a tremendous strength program at Arapahoe under head coach Mike Campbell and has been working hard to add strength. With his added strength Connor is now able to take advantage of all the tremendous mechanical gifts he posses. Connor has extremely high football IQ and it continues to grow. Connor can line everyone up and make sure an offense is in the right play before the ball is snapped. He has great accuracy and footwork and as he continues to work hard in the weight room he will add even more back-window velocity to his throws.

Riley GlynnRiley Glynn – Mead High School

Riley is the definition of why I love what I do. When I first saw Riley he was a lanky kid with a side arm release. While most had written him off Riley has tremendous work ethic. Riley has transformed his delivery and so much more through meticulous hard work and hours upon hours of working at his craft. Riley was just recently named the starter at Mead High School and I truly believe will help this team make a deep playoff run. Riley has a very high understanding of football which will help his learning curve this year as he straps up for his first season on the varsity level.

Vic LavigneVic Lavigne – ThunderRidge High School

Vic is a tremendous athlete at the quarterback position. With a heavy running back background growing up Vic’s dual threat ability will be a tremendous asset for the Grizzlies this fall. Vic is making tremendous growth as a pocket passer and is elite from outside the pocket. When on the move Vic generates tremendous back-end velocity on the football. With his functional football intelligence growing Vic will be a real threat this season and a potential break out star this season.

012A9614Conner Martin – Strasburg High School

Conner is the younger brother of Strasburg starter Mitch Martin who was featured on our class of 2016 piece. Conner is a great athlete at the quarterback position also starring on the basketball court. He will play wide receiver this year for Strasburg with his older brother being the starter. Conner has tremendous upside as a quarterback with his rare blend of arm talent and athleticism. Do not be shocked if next year Strasburg is just as good with Conner under center as it was with Mitchell. Also don’t be surprised when Conner begins to get recruiting looks at both football and basketball his senior year.

 

That wraps up our preview of 2017 JenkinsQB athletes. Be sure to check back for our class of 2018 update as the season approaches.

Class of 2016 Preview

Share | facebooktwittergoogle_pluslinkedinmail

With week 1 inside of 2 weeks away we are going to preview our quarterbacks class by class over the next week. Starting with this years strong class of 2016 signal callers.

Mitch Martin

Mitch Martin – Strasburg High School

Mitch Martin is a strong armed quarterback from Strasburg High School a class 2A school. He has everything you want in a quarterback projecting to the college level. His size 6′ 3″ 195lbs is good and his arm strength is through the roof. Mitchell is the definition of a worker and has been grinding with us since the day after his playoff loss last year. Footwork wise he has cleaned up his pocket movement as well as his redirect step. He is committed to University of Sioux Falls and will continue to garner more attention as the season continues. He is a definite contender for all state honors and will be one of the last quarterbacks standing come playoff time.

Dylan Reifeis

Dylan Reifeis – Evergreen High School

Dylan Reifeis is another elite Colorado quarterback in the Class of 2016. Already holding an offer from University of Nebraska Kearney, Dylan is another QB who can expect recruiting to heat up after he showcases his new and improved mechanics and pocket awareness. Dylan is a tremendous athlete who deserves more credit than he receives for the plays he can make with his feet. Creation is a key to his game, when outside the pocket Dylan is deadly. Much improved pocket awareness and functional football intelligence will have this gunslinger at the top of his game. He is another contender for all state honors and will once again be standing deep into playoff time with his 3A squad from Evergreen High School.

Max Lush- Rock Canyon High SchoolMax Lush

Max rounds out our talk of 2016 field generals. Where Max lacks in varsity experience (first year under center) he makes up for with intelligence. In the classroom Max is one of the best quarterbacks in our entire program. Max when clicking on all cylinders can play with the best of them in this state. Max has improved his foot quickness and arm strength over the last 8 months working meticulous on his skill set. Max has generated some RMAC college interest and after he leads the Jaguars to success early in the season he will see the recruiting trail begin to heat up. Max posses elite level accuracy and details when it comes to the quarterback position. As he continues to add to his frame more and more arm strength will come and the sky is the limit for Max as a passer. Given the young talent around him at Rock Canyon High School especially the receiving threat of Eric Hommel, the Jaguars may surprise some people this year.

 

The class of 2016 while not deep in numbers for JenkinsQB has some of our best athletes in the entire program. All 3 in my opinion will have a chance to play football at the college level. Where those opportunities come from is the only uncertainty.
