When it comes to the state of Pennsylvania–their legacy of drop back quarterbacks is well-known.
Gridiron greats such as Joe Montana and Dan Marino put together sparkling legacies on the high school football fields in the Keystone state well before they were enshrined into the NFL Hall of Fame.
Then comes along sophomore Damion Terry of Erie Cathedral Prep (Erie, Pa.).
A dynamic dual threat quarterback blessed with blazing speed in the open field–Terry demonstrated the ability to beat teams with his arm or his legs this past season.
As a sophomore, he completed 99 of his 191 pass attempts (51 percent) for 1,780 passing yards and 19 touchdowns, while tossing just five interceptions.
As a runner, Terry was lethal–shredding opposing defenses for 555 rushing yards and 8 touchdowns on 107 carries (5.19 yards per carry).
In all, the fleet-footed signal-caller racked up over 2,300 all-purpose yards and 27 touchdowns.
One of the top football players in the 2013 recruiting class–look for the talented junior to garner more attention from college coaches as time passes.
Listed at 6’4, 200 pounds, the dynamic quarterback is already blessed with the size football coaches drool over at the Division I-A level and beyond.
As a passer, Terry demonstrates beautiful touch on the football–making the catch much easier on his receivers.
As a runner, he’s blessed with excellent vision of reading the holes and uses his speed and acceleration to do the rest for him.
