2016 QB Coming on Strong

West Monroe's Sophomore QB has led his team to the playoffs and they face off with (4-6) Denham Springs in the first game of what Jon Randall Belton hopes is a championship run.

2016 riser, Jon Randall Belton holds two offers with more sure to come. At 6'3" and 195 pounds, Belton already has the frame to play QB in college and he still has two years remaining at the high school level.

Although he couldn't name off his stats, Belton says he feels like he's settled in after a challenging start to the season.

"We have round one of the playoffs coming this week against Denham Springs" said Belton. "I'm feeling good now, but in the fist game of the season, I was a little edgy."

"I started getting more confident in my passing and running the more I played" he said. "We're 8-2 but we know that even though Denham Springs is 4-6, you can never judge a team by the record; they have a pretty good defense and I think it's going to be a pretty good game."

With offers on the table from Louisiana Tech and Louisiana-Lafayette, the 2016 star knows that he'll have the opportunity to play at the next level no matter what else happens. While that makes him feel good, he knows he can't rest on those two offers and cease to progress.

"There's lots of stuff for me to improve on over the summer" he said. "I want to be more consistent with my passes and really work on my leadership."

"With a lot of the seniors graduating, I'm going to have to step up and be more of a leader" he said. "Those are the main things."

As far as other schools that are recruiting him, Belton knows he'll have plenty of schools watching him progress.

"LSU, Mississippi State, Arkansas, TCU, all of those(are talking to him)" said Belton. "I talk to Coach Burns from TCU and we have a pretty good relationship."

"They have three guys from West Monroe that play for TCU so I stay in touch with them and I talk to Coach Burns when I call up there; he's a real good guy."

With seemingly an eternity until signing day 2016, Belton will have plenty of time to pull in more scholarships. Will the Frogs stay hot on his trail or will other teams move in and overshadow them?
