HS Football: Year Of The QB
From Marcus Christopher, Nick Clawson and Chase Carmichael...to Connor Crawford, Grant Hartley and Anthony Sousa...was this the year of the quarterback in the North Region of high school football?
The regular season stats show some interesting numbers...
In Class D LTC: Bucksport's Chase Carmichael threw for a league record 1,573 yards and 20 TDs...Foxcroft's Nick Clawson threw for 939 yards and run for 751 yards. He totaled 26 TDs...Ellsworth QB Connor Crawford finished as the LTC's leading rusher with 1.030 yards...Dominic Libbey pass and rush combo was over 1,000 yards.
In Class B North: Skowhegan junior QB Marcus Christopher put up eye-popping passing numbers. 165-for-249 (66%), 2,287 yards and 33 TDs...Most years, Cony QB Anthony Sousa's stats would top the list, 163-for-257 (63%) 1,683 yards and 15 TDs...Five of eight teams in 'B' North threw for over 900 yards.
In Class C North Big 11: Hermon's Garrett Trask totaled 1.560 yards of passing and running yards. He totaled 26 TDS...The leading passer in 'C' North was MCI freshman QB Ryan Friend with 846 yards...Five teams had quarterbacks throw for over 600 yards.
In Class A North: Edward Little HS senior quarterback Grant Hartley was top passer with 999 yards and 11 TDs...It is interesting to note that 'A' North did not have anyone throw for a thousand yard or run for a thousand yards.
