Let the GCL Co-eds QB battles begin

Four of the eight teams in the GCL Coeds will have first year starters under center in 2015. Top returnees Jacob Harrison (Chaminade Julienne), Zach Larkin (Badin), Jacob Severt (Caroll) and Jimmy Gephart (Fenwick) will be welcomed faces by their coaches.

Here is a look at what we can expect from those squads needing to fill big voids at quarterback.


Alter: The most intriguing position in the league to be filled will be under center at Alter. You can be sure of one thing whomever head coach Ed Domsitz decides on they will be able to manage the game and take care of the ball. The Knights have proven they can win with or without a star signal-caller under Domsitz. Quarterbacks don’t beat themselves at Alter.

McNicholas: Junior Cameron Haynes and senior Jacob Vaughn will be in the mix for the Rockets job. Vaughn could end up at running back. He showed that he was more than capable of handling the load last season when called upon at that position tallying 138 of his 166 yards on the ground in Week 5 at Carroll. Haynes will benefit in his fight for the job by getting the ball into the hands of the weapons that surround him like Vaughn, Adam Hisch and Sam Browning so that they can make plays.

Purcell Marian: All signs point to great things for Anthony Clark who has a tremendous upside for the Cavs. In last season’s season finale as a freshman Clark ran for a game high 84 yards, threw for 39 yards while scampering 22 yards for a score and tossing another one. He was also a starter in the defensive secondary.

In three games, junior Ben Bates went 1-4 for five yards a year ago. He has talent and must figure out a way to get on the field on a regular basis over the next two falls for the

Roger Bacon: Whomever wins the Spartans job will get the luxury of throwing to one of the top small school receivers in the state, Jordan Williams. Look for new head coach Mike Blaut to open up the Spartans offense even more than he did as Roger Bacon’s offensive coordinator the past several years. He will look to get the ball to Williams as much as possible and that will ease much of the pressure off an inexperienced quarterback.
