Super 7 Quarterback Competition Brings in Best Around Florida
Sunday’s Mastrole Quarterback Academy marked the 4th annual Super 7 QB competition. University School’s Henry Colombi has been on quite a roll. Following being named Florida’s 4A player of the year the 2017 QB took home MVP Super 7 honors and received his first college offer (Temple) following the event. ESPNU, Rivals, South Florida High School Sports, Larry Blustein, and other News media were on site to cover the 40 QBs invited. Bryan Gagg, the 2019 QB from Sarasota high school was impressive and will be a name to watch move up the boards for Florida prospects. Starting on varsity as a Freshman this year Gagg showed why he will be talked about with accuracy, arm strength, and foot speed. AJ Colagiovanni from Manatee high school crossed the state for the competition and showed why he will be an intriguing prospect from the west coast of Florida. Leesburg 2018 QB Wyatt Rector has the measurables and the arm to play FBS football. Rector showed well on the live routes as well as the deep throwing portion of the competition. South Fork’s Stone Labanowitz is coming off an impressive statistical season and was the top scoring quarterback for the entire group of 40 heading into the finals. Kosi Perry from Vanguard high school (holds an offer from the University of Miami) is a raw, athletic, live arm QB who will continue to progress into one of the state’s best. Naples Florida QBs Jack Bueltel of Baron Collier and Gulf Coast high school’s Kaden Frost are two that can throw the ball with the best across the state and will benefit in wide open pass heavy offenses. Both QBs excelled on the field as well as in the classroom film testing. A name you will hear more about this off season is Shabazz Telfort. The Boyd Anderson QB has a power 5 conference level arm. If he continues to move in a direction of sound footwork and mechanics, Telfort has the makeup to become a major college prospect. He was impressive throughout the Super 7 event. Lake City QB Davin Schuck possibly spins the best ball in the group. Where he lacks in size he makes up in competitive nature, anticipation, and arm strength. Schuck is a difference maker and will look to finish a close run for the state title in 2015. Booker T’s Daniel Richardson won a state championship as freshman and has a chance to be one of the best to ever come out for Dade county if he continues to stay on course and producing like he did in 2015. Cameron Smith of American Heritage Delray will also be a major prospect in the next 2 years. Size, quick release, and the ability to extend plays makes this sophomore QB a threat the next two years. Maurice Underwood from Champagnat had a successful freshman year and will continue to flourish in a pass oriented offense. Underwood has the height and arm to attract coaches in the spring heading into his sophomore year. Jason Brown of American Heritage Plantation finished in the final 7 and provides a run pass threat at the position. The 2017 QB is a physical and gifted player who can stretch the ball down field as well as mix in zone read to keep coordinators honest on their defensive schemes. The event measured accuracy, arm strength, foot speed, ability to play under center, pressure situations, film and coverage pre snap recognitions, as well as anticipation. “We wanted to create an event with receivers and quarterbacks that was a close to game experience and pressures these quarterbacks face ever Friday and potentially Sarurday afternoon at the next level” said Ken Mastrole.
