To say there are a lot of Quarterbacks coming out of the NW is an understatement. There are a lot of "Damn Good Quarterbacks" coming out of High Schools all over the NW. The region is ripe with talent at the QB spot and there is no question we over-produce good and great ones for such a small area population wise. This next season will see no drop off in the trend and it is getting more and more important for top prospects to be identified earlier not only by colleges but by services like ours. The talent will take you a long way but the real trick is getting the word out to match with the talent.
For 2016 QB's Justus Rogers (Bellevue HS) and Gresch Jensen (Auburn Mountainview) the word has been out for a while. Having said that their work at the recent NW Stars Camp truly raised the bar for these two and some others.
Rogers has a cannon of an arm and is so physical that he quickly turns broken plays into gainers. At the camp he was a clear top gun prospect and only confirmed that his ascent as a passing QB is for real. After all he plays at Bellevue whose Wing-T offense has won them championship after championship and the number of passes they tend to throw could be counted on par with the number of confirmed Big Foot sightings. Last season however, thanks to Rogers arm and a host of big targets, the Wolverines opened things up a bit. His stats won't wow anyone (yet) but it is what he does when he has the ball that shines. He is productive and becoming an excellent recruit at the highest level. He had a great Camp and we interviewed him below. He is a confirmed Pac 12 Recruit and a Rivals 3 Star prospect.
Here are his HUDL Highlights for 2014
One of the other spectacular kids at Camp was Gresch Jensen of Auburn Mountainview. Jensen is a big physical kid and boy does he make all the throws. His accuracy and spin of that ball are just a spectacle. He had a 1,900 yards passing and 650 yards on the run with 28 total TD's last season for the Lions. They are coming into the 2015 Fall as a real contender with some big targets and a young man in Jensen who showed us he is top cabin; as good as anyone we have seen for 2015 short of Jacob "Skinny" Eason of Lake Stevens who is the #1 overall recruit in the US right now.

More and more stories coming from NWPR for the camp we helped run this last February. The NW Stars Camp had a goal to get under-looked Seniors a shot to land offers and we did that with over 15 kids now reporting offers from camp. The silver lining was the number of Juniors and Sophomores who got a look and made their names known as the camp. Plans are already being made for next years showcase.
Stay tuned to NWPR for all your recruiting news and camp information as we move ahead.
