Just a question for you guys on here. I am the varsity O-line coach but the JV HC and OC. We have a good group of kids on the JV but our QB is better suited at TE, the position he played last season. He basically only wanted to play QB this season because we had noone else on JV. However in our program we have two excellent Frosh QBs, both of which have good size, speed, and arm strength. My question is, do we take lumps with the Sophomore who will never be a varsity QB or do we prepare the younger freshman for a spot he could hypothetically take over next season as a sophomore on varsity.
If the freshman kid(s) are better than go with one of them. Better off having both freshmen that might one day be the varsity QB getting experience than a kid who is ultimately not going to be the QB. Pick the freshman QB that seems to be more of a leader and tough kid...he'll more likely be the varsity QB in a year or two and play him.
Just my two cents...
