One of the top signal callers in the Class of 2020 will be wearing a different uniform in 2017. As first reported by Steve Gamel of the Denton Record-Chronicle, Lake Dallas quarterback Drew Sanders has transferred to Colleyville Heritage.

The reason for the move is that Sanders’ father, Mitch Sanders, was recently hired as the new co-offensive coordinator under Heritage head coach Joseph Willis.
Sanders saw time as a freshman last year for Lake Dallas, finishing the season with 392 yards and two touchdowns while rushing for 438 more yards and eight scores and earning a second-team all-district selection. The rising sophomore already has some big-name schools interested in him, fielding scholarship offers from the likes of Georgia, Oklahoma and TCU among others.
The signal-caller also finds himself in a crowded quarterback competition. The Panthers are looking to replace last year’s quarterback Cam Roane, who signed with San Diego State. Per Mitch Sanders via Gamel, there are two other seniors also competing to be the starter in 2017.
Whoever ends up the starter at Colleyville Heritage will look to build off a season that saw them advance all the way to the Class 5A Division I regional finals.
The Panthers opens the season on September 1 at Aledo.
