Strong Field Shaping Up For QB1 Challenge

The inaugural QB1 Quarterback Challenge is shaping up to be an extremely strong field of talent, ensuring quality competition and presenting us with a difficult task of ranking the state's top signal callers. There's still time to register, so if you are a quarterback from 9th to 12th grade, don't miss this opportunity at exposure, development, and experience in the best quarterback camp in the country.

The senior group of quarterbacks is shaping up to be a very strong class. Some of the players to keep a sharp eye upon are Blue Ridge's Caleb Rowe, who has separate himself from the rest of the pack in the SCVarsity Camps and Combines earlier this year, Greer's Reese Hannon, who was a standout at our summer camp in 2010, and Spartanburg's Adrian Kollock, who may be the top dual threat quarterback in the senior class, and Columbia High's Ky Tyler, who is one of the Midlands' top prospects. Fort Dorchester's Ethan Long is one of the top passers in the low country and has looked great at camps last summer and this summer. Summerville's Dalton Saunders, who amassed 2,700 yards and 24 touchdowns as a junior, will be one to watch. Easley's Zach Lappin is an interesting player in that he executes a winged offensive attack, yet displayed near flawless passing execution at the SCVarsity.com Winter Football Camp and could find himself competing for a top spot in the rankings. Timberland's Taylor Elizondo helped lead the Wolves to success in 2010 and has developed into a very good quarterback and should be tough in competion.

Underclassmen we expect to do well are juniors Shaquille Johnson of Hartsville, Camden's Josh Council, both of whom had outstanding sophomore seasons for their respective teams. We have what may be three of the top quarterbacks from the Class of 2014 coming in for competition and they should push the upperclassmen hard. Byrnes' Shuler Bentley has looked outstanding in passing league and practice this spring and summer and will be a tough competitor in this event. Lexington's Will Hunter, who started as a freshman for the Wildcats and put up more than 2,100 yards and completed 57% of his passes, will be one to watch in this event. Brookland-Cayce's Zeke Walker is a 6-2, 170lbs sophomore who has all of the tools to one of the top quarterbacks in this class by the time he is senior. There are a couple of freshmen that we are looking forward to seeing after looking at their "middle school" film, but we'll have to wait and see how they do in their first "high school" camp setting against quality competition.

Camp Testing Phase:

  • 40 yard dash
  • standing broad jump
  • vertical jump (jump pad)
  • 5/10/5 pro agility shuttle

Camp Performance Phase:

  • Mental challenge - 10 questions/scantron test
  • Long toss
  • drops
  • accuracy on stationary targets
  • accuracy on moving targets
  • route throws - five different routes with varying drops.

All players will be ranked in each event, receiving points based on their rank. After all 10 of the events - testing, mental, and performance - the points will be tallied and the QB1 winner will be named. MVP's will be named for each grade division, but only one player will be named THE QB1.

There is still room in this camp but we are limiting it to 80 players. If you want to develop your game, improving on the things about your game that you have control over, and are not scared of competition, then this camp is for you. Remember, this camp is for 9th - 12th graders. If you want to register for the camp, click on the ad below.
