When we introduced you to Bakersfield Christian QB Braden Wingle a few weeks ago he was just starting to heat up. Wingle now currently has over 4,000 yards passing with 43 touchdowns making him one of the top quarterbacks in the valley if not the State. Although much of the attention has gone to Adrian Martinez of Clovis West, Wingle could be the most sought after QB in the Bakersfield Area.
Watching Wingle lead the BCHS Eagles from behind to win the State Playoff Game at Selma one can’t help notice the poise and maturity of the young quarterback. Under constant pressure Wingle managed to hold his composure like that of a young Joe Montana carving up defenses. Now Wingle is poised to put an exclamation mark on his brilliant junior season this Saturday during the State Championship.
Head Coach Darren Carr has high praise and confidence in the young quarterback and offensive coordinator David Carr has taken him under his wing developing him into a dangerous pocket passer. All season long head coach Darren Carr has been telling everyone and anyone who would listen about how good the Eagles QB is and now it seems like Fresno State is ready to listen. Just last week Fresno State’s wide receivers coach Kirby Moore made the trip down to Bakersfield to talk to the Bakersfield Christian coaching staff to acquire more information about several players including Wingle.
Wingle has drawn early interest from several schools such as Northern Arizona, Cal, and Utah. Now the Bulldogs are ready to throw their hat into the ring. A move that could prove to be a wise one for the Bulldogs. Getting in early on the young quarterback could prove to be a smart move as Wingle’s Senior season could be one with many offers ahead.
