Best QB in the state? What do y'all think?

Page 11 of [QUOTE=LSURock]While I agree that Burke may be the best in the state at this time, he is no where near in the class of Brohm and Couch. He is good, but... 185 comments | 12282 Views | Go to page 1 →

IMO if Olinger had the Oline that some of these larger schools enjoy, he would probably be a D1 prospect, he might be anyway.
    LOL!!!! I don't know what Hazard games you've watched. Apparently not many of them. Find a film or two and watch them. Hazard does have the best quarterback in the state. However Hazard also has a Oline that is experienced and has done a excellent job protecting their quarterback. The Oline's protection is the reason that the quarterback gets the stats that they get. As you can tell the Oline get no credit. There are more than one player on the field playing the game .

    Cashen is a good kid and fits in well with the offense at Corbin. His dad made a good move getting him to transfer to Corbin - they mesh very well. But he's more of a "Lorenzen" type QB - big kid, good arm, good head on his shoulders, but not very mobile and throws a "soft" ball. I haven't seen much arm strength from him yet, but I've only seen him play once last year.

    Hoskins at Mboro has more of a QB body - 6'4", maybe a little light at 185#. He's much faster (high 4.5's) than any local QB, and may have the strongest arm in the State. Throws a frozen rope like Marino did, and it's actually hard for some kids to catch. Threw several over 60 yards in warmups last game I attended, and looked effortless doing it. Playing for an option team hurts his passing stats, but he's still attracting a lot of D1 attention, with visits to UK & Marshall already this season. He's a Jr, and was Hon Mention All-State as a WR in his Soph year.

    Ammons is just an Athlete, more of a Pulley-type, and may move to another position at the next level. IMO, he and Burke are currently the State's best.

    Cashen and Lewis are by far the best young QB's in the mountains. The difference between them and kids like Bowling at this time, is size and arm strength. Both are just big strong kids who can throw lazar like. I think Lewis is 6'2 and is a little faster than both at this time. Cashen has more experience and don't make very many mistakes. Good leader. They throw it down the field alot more where as S. Laurel throws short passes and lets veteran senior playmakers do the rest. All three are good, but these two are ahead of the rest of the young QB's, probably state wide as well.

    Lewis is a very good athlete, but I did not realize that he was that big, but I have not seen him since he was in the 7th grade. Has he given up baseball?
    I realize that it is extremely hard to play three sports(Cashen is going to try again this year), but he needs to play if he can find the time.

    Cashen is not the best QB in the state(I have not seen where anyone claims that he is), but he would not be rated as one of the top 6 sophomore QB's in the country if you were right.

    Cashen's best games last year were in the playoffs against E-town, DeSales and Owensboro Catholic. These were big games against teams with plenty of athletes and talent(several div-1 players on these teams. Contact the coaches of these teams and ask their opinion of Cashen and see if they agree with yours.
    I saw Cashen last year up close and personal at the O Catholic Corbin game. We had Bernard who set the single season yardage record last year. When I left the game all I could talk about was how good that Freshman QB was. Our Coach caught him after the game and told him he was the best Freshman QB he has seen in a while. Now he may not be the best in the state this year but good greif he is only a Soph. He is a monster of a player and will be the best QB in KY when he is Senior!

    I think that sums it up for now.

    throws a "soft" ball. I haven't seen much arm strength from him yet,
    You must have seen him play early in the year when the shoulder was still bothering him. Most incompletions come as the result of receivers not being able to handle the fast ball. Last week while converting a 2 point conversion he had on defender hanging on to his jersey and I think another around his ankles and threw a strike 30 yards across the field. While he is still not very mobile, I believe that he has picked up some speed from last year - has shown the ability to get out of trouble in the pocket and has scored 2 or 3 tds rushing.

    Lets all get serios about Cashen, and his D1 opprutunties he has to be a front runner to be a D1 canidate, if every thing holds up, he has the arm strength, the head, the size or will have the size and he has the two things that make people succsesful. He has good parents who have him on the right path and he has the work ethic and desire for his team to be a superstars (including himself) and he still acts a s a gentleman. Him and the whole Corbin team has faced diversity with a lot of graduation and transfers but you can bet your bottom dollar that if he wants to play D1. He will because he is that kind of kid. I have seen the kid since he was very young and he just works to be better and to make every one around him better.

    You have said everything that I didn't know how to put in words. As awesome as Clint is on the field, he is even more impressive as a person. He's just a good ol country boy with good morals and values life and appreciates the gift that was given to him. He's a proud player but not one bit cocky. As you said, it all starts from the top. Walt and Debbie have raised a excellent kid and have taught him the right way to handle success.

    Come watch him play now. I dare you to step infront of his ball. But seriously he has gotten alot more strength out of his arm and quite a bit more mobility, he is really starting to move around in the pocket. Hey he has improved that much in 1 year, think how much he will improve in 2 more years?

    I'm sure there are alot of deserving players for this honor. And most people on this site probably have't seen a lot of the others. But from my biased view, and I have not seen a lot of these qb's listed on here, but on our side of the state, Ashland's Ian Holbrook means so much to Ashland's success this and last year. He runs extremely well ,almost like a fast fullback, and his completion percentage is very good. He is the best quarterback in our communities view.

    How many times have you watched Holbrook?? If most people are like me, they don't get to see too many other prospects, only the local teams. I am sure Burke, Fidler, etc. are the best college prospects no doubt. The only think I know I have watched Ashland football for about 40 years(I am getting old) and in my humble opinion, Holbrook is clearly the best all around quarter back Ashland has produced-not that Ashland has been a quarterback factory or anthing. Holbrook can throw short, deep, on the run and is extremely accurate-my guess would be about 60% to 65%, I don't know for sure. He is very fast running the ball-leads a 9-2 team in rushing, has been the strongest player on the team 2 years running and, I think may be a 4.0 caliber student. He is also all business, nothing in your face-a real pleasure to watch. He may not be top 10, but I certainly wouldn't bet against it.

    Well, no disrespect but its certainly not Olinger, or Holbrook. Not even sure they were the best on the field in their playoff games. Over the past 3 or 4 weeks, it has to be Daniel Pugh of Paintsville, when it counts, and he's just a junior. I don't even like Paintsville, but this kid can throw, run, and return punts and kickoffs.
