EVENT COVERAGE | Showcase QBs heating up this season (2023)
Six Star Football takes a look at several prospects making noise early in the season.
With the upcoming season now underway, Six Star Football takes a look at several rising OLB prospects who stood out in the early going.
Thomas Aponte | 5’8, 162 | QB | 2023 | Everglades Prep | @qbthomasaponte
Aponte is a QB that is one of the seniors to watch for this season at Everglades Prep and was a arm that impressed at the 6Star Football Showcase this past season. Aponte, 5-8, 162, is a ‘23 that earned a Doane offer also, one of those QBs with a good arm and upfield vision that will be looking to raise his profile this year and has the arm to do just that.
Ernest Flythe | 61, 1765 | QB | 2023 | Belleview | @ernestflythe
Its not very often you find a QB with the talent and the arm that Belleview’s Ernest Flythe has, a huge junior season makes him a major prospect to know entering the 2022 season this year, Flythe had 2,177 passing yards on 134 of 209 passing and racked up a big number for TD passes with 25 passing. Not just a great passer but a dual threat guy also that had 655 rushing yards on 54 carries and added 6 rushing TDs with his longest run being 70 yards. Will be looking to lead Belleview to another big season after going (8-3) in 2021.
Ayden Fryar | 6’3, 205 | QB | 2023 | Lincoln | @fryar_ayden
A player that has a very good frame at 6-3, 205, is both tall and has some size to his frame also to make him a very durable and well built senior QB prospect in the senior class out of Lincoln High in Tallahassee. A very good step back 2-3 steps from the shot gun and fire the ball down the field QB that sees the field in front of him well and has the arm to make the game look easy. Talent to have on big arms to know for Florida QBs in the ‘23.
Robert Furney | 6’5, 235 | QB | 2023 | Forest Hill | @furney_robert
One of the tallest senior QB prospects out there at 6-5, 235, Furney is built to see the field above all other players and also packs on 235 pounds, not an easy QB to just take to the ground but a guy that has that extra size to make him hard to handle as a durable senior leader under center for Forest Hill as well.
Michael Grant | 6’3, 190 | QB | 2023 | Maclay | @Michael24Grant
Grant just went off in huge way against Brookwood with 323 passing yards, a very accurate game with a 67.9% completion mark and had a 146.3 QB rating in the game. No doubt with games like that you can see why this senior QB at Marclay is on his way to being a major recruit that can air it out and really throw the ball with accuracy and often also. Good looking hot senior QB prospect to have on the radar this year.
Ty Keller | 6’1, 195 | QB | 2023 | First Baptist | @TyKeller9
A monster season in 2021 as a junior at First Baptist had keller go off for a huge 38 Passing TDs and he only had 5 Ints on the entire season, while finishing off a very strong 2021 with 2,575 passing yards. Keller is one of those guys with a big time arm and plays the game very smart also, a player that does not make many mistakes and the combination of being a big leader, being a smart QB and having a strong arm makes him a must see QB in the senior class this year.
Quinn Niemann | 6’2, 200 | QB | 2023 | Lake Minneola | @QNiemann14
A good looking senior QB prospect from Lake Minneola, 6-2, 200, not bad size either for this play maker that has a good arm and plays the game well, Looking for more and more games to prove himself and his arm this year and will be a senior leader looking to be an offensive impact maker with his arm. A name to know that has a lot of impressive potential to watch for this year.
Clayton Philpot | 5’10, 175 | QB | 2023 | Fort White | @Claytonp_2005
Clayton is playing very well this year for Fort White, coming off a week that he had 115 passing yards, and a 58.8% completion mark against Newberry, will look to add more and more to those numbers this year and will be looking for some big games coming up this year to make a big name for himself. A guy that does have some nice mobility in the pocket to make plays also.
Quincy Rowe | 6’3, 220 | QB | 2023 | West Boca Raton | @Rowe2Quincy
Rowe will be a senior and one that has a big and impressive looking 6-3, 220 frame for the offense at West Boca Raton High School, Quincy is a player that has the size and athletic skills to be a good one and will be one of the stock risers to watch for this season, size is there and is looking to make more and more big throws and plays down the field this year as a senior riser on the watch list to know.
Samuel Wooley | 6’1, 160 | QB | 2023 | St John Paul | @SamuelWooley2
Wooley, 6-1, 160 senior QB prospect and a riser to watch for at St. John Paul, is a player that has a good arm and can make some impressive throws down the field. Wooley holds an offer from Doane and is a player that will be looking to pick up more and more offers this season with a big final year, has the arm strength, looking to show just how good he is this year and pick up more interest and offers from college programs.
