The 2017 Class 4 football season has concluded and as teams begin to focus on off season conditioning and 7 v. 7 games I was pondering the quarterback position for 2018. When I looked at the 2017 graduating class I realized Class 4 is losing a lot of talent at the quarterback position. I really don’t know much about Region C and D, so if I forgot someone please forgive me. Bell (Louisa), Fludd (Monacan), Ward (Lafayette), Drew (Smithfield), German (Kings Fork), McCallum (Glass), and Neal (Charlottesville). Even with these losses there are several top performers coming back. Entsminger (Sherando), Lowry (EV), Gladden (Salem), Johnson (Blacksburg), Poole (GW Danville), Harvey (Lake Taylor), and Pope (Dinwiddie), not to mention, Hunter (Louisa) who faired very well in his appearances as a starter and backup during the 2017 season. I will start by saying my pick for the best overall quarterback is Entsminger from Sherando. This young man is smart, fast, delivers the ball accurately, and can make all of the throws necessary. Poole and Pope are very alike and could be considered the best dual threat quarterbacks in the this group. Gladden demonstrated improvement all season. He simply plays smart football and wins.. Johnson from Blacksburg lost some weapons, but to my knowledge this will be his third year as a starter. No reason to believe he will not be at the top of the list. Harvey from Lake Taylor is a pure athlete. If he works on ball security and perfects his command of the veer Lake Taylor will be in the thick of things. Hunter, from Louisa is still unproven. The Lions lost a plethora of weapons, but something tells me that Coach Patrick will keep the Lions in the thick of things with this young man. In fact, his ability to accurately make all the throws should enhance Louisa's offense.. With the above being said. Let’s discuss the quarterback situation at each Class 4 school. What newcomer will likely shine? Who will be the best of the best? Who did I forget?
