Posted August 8, 2013 8:43 pm
Brandon McIlwain, a sophomore football player for Council Rock North, is the next big-time quarterback prospect out of Pennsylvania. The 6’1″, 190 pound dual-threat quarterback is only going into his sophomore year, but he has superstar player written all over him. Hey, even Temple knows the deal as they were the first to give him a football scholarship offer.
During his freshman season of high school football, McIlwain passed for 1,370 yards and 9 touchdowns. He also added in 715 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns to the mix. He wasn’t perfect, as evidenced by the 15 interceptions he threw during the 2012 season. But you’d expect that from a freshman playing football at the varsity level against some good competition. He is a true dual-threat because not only can he throw the ball, he is very dangerous when running as well. McIlwain is not a run-first type of quarterback at all. McIlwain is very advanced at this stage of the game and will only get better. He has been a phenom since the 7th grade and is on track to live up to the high expectations many people had of him even back then.
Now that coaches have had a whole off-season to prepare for him, it will be interesting to see if McIlwain can improve upon his 2012 season. Check out his 2012 season highlight below and make sure to check back with preps.com to follow his progress throughout the 2013 season.
