A few weeks have gone by, and needless to say there have been some spectacular performances around the state. To put some of these into perspective this list will compose of some of the top quarterback leaders we found here at TexasHSFootball.
Of course, if there are some players you feel as though that should be on this list, we are open to suggestions as the season progresses.
For the time being here is the list of top five quarterbacks in the state so far, in no particular order.
Cade Schrader (Keller Timber Creek) – District 3-6A
There is a bevy of talented programs with outstanding quarterbacks in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, but when it comes to passing yards, Schrader leads them all in the 6A classification.
Schrader on the season has compiled 64 completions on 88 attempts which puts him at a 72% completion percentage. He has a total of 995 passing yards in three games which averages him around 331 passing yards per game. He has eight passing touchdowns on the season as well as two rushing touchdowns.
Schrader leads an offense that statistically puts up 505.3 yards per game and has the Timber Creek Falcons at 3-0 on the season. We will see if Schrader and company can fend off the Denton Broncos this Thursday, as they come in with a 3-0 record as well.
Nick Gerber (Levelland) – District 1-4A
The Lobos are 2-1 right now, and Nick Gerber has put up some ridiculous numbers on a team that has averaged 60 points a game in their first three competitions. Gerber is credited with 420.7 passing yards per game, and if that doesn’t impress you well maybe his 22 passing touchdowns to his 1 interception will. He has accumulated 1262 passing yards on 68 completions in his 105 pass attempts.
Expect his numbers to further increase as the Lobos take on the 0-3 Brownfield Cubs next.
Chase Allison (Robinson) – District 9-4A
The Robinson Rockets are off to a 3-0 start after a season that saw them finish 1-9 last year. Chase Allison has come firing out the gate early in the season to help propel a potent offense. Allison has 19 touchdowns on the season and 1437 passing yards. He averages 479.0 yards a game and has helped his team to score an average of 62 points per game.
Opposing defenses have a hard time trying to slow down the quarterback and, it’s evident based on the single interception he has thrown thus far. Allison will hit the road as their next opponent on the schedule is Athens, who has yet to win a game this season.
Court Walker (Trinity Christian-Addison) – TAPPS D1
Let’s face it, when high school football is discussed, the private schools are sometimes left out of the conversation. It can be frustrating to those that are classified in the private school divisions because there are some fantastic players.
Court Walker is one of those fantastic players in his air raid offense. Walker has thrown for 1285 yards. In his 99 completions on 151 attempts, the gunslinger has thrown for 19 touchdowns. Walker also has three rushing touchdowns and 105 yards on the ground this season.
The 2-1 Trojans have a district game on Sept. 23 rd against winless John Paul II.
Shawn Robinson (DeSoto) – District 7-6A
It would probably be safe to say that when you compose a list of top quarterbacks, Shawn Robinson’s name will likely appear so let’s go ahead and continue with that trend. The TexasHSFootball No. 1 ranked DeSoto Eagles have been well documented in regards to their talent. So when you take one Shawn Robinson and plug him in an offense with outstanding skill position players and an offensive line with three D1 commits, you can expect a sight to behold.
Robinson has been lethal in the air and on the ground. He is 34-of- 62 on the season for 656 passing yards and eight touchdowns. He has only given up one interception and when he decides to attack from the ground, he has rushed for 397 yards and six touchdowns. Robinson last week accounted for all seven touchdowns against Midland High School when DeSoto narrowed them out for a victory.
DeSoto at 3-0 has a huge district matchup against the Cedar Hill Longhorns on Sept. 23rd that’s sure to be a game of epic proportions.
Tre’Von Bradley – Cleburne
Grant Gunnell – Houston St. Pius X
