Euell Ready for His Turn

Madison Central junior wide receiver Quentin Euell is expecting big things this fall. With a D1 quarterback as a classmate and teammate and a new offensive scheme, the talented Euell believes this can be a break out season for both he and the Jaguars. The son of former Mississippi State player Bernard Euell, Quinton is now eager to make a name of his own.

Madison Central hired former Brandon and Louisville head football coach Brad Peterson during the off season to lead the Jags into the football future. Euell is excited about what is to come.

"Coach Peterson is a really nice coach," Euell said. "His offense is really suited to us. I am really excited about the season."

Euell's campaign will be aided by the play of rising junior star quarterback Jack Walker. The pair of 2017 standouts have had several years to build some chemistry together.

"I feel like we have a really strong chance this year with me and Jack," Euell said. "We've been bonding for a while. He's been my quarterback since seventh grade. I think this is going to be a really good year for us."

Recruiting is really just getting started for Euell. He understands that the process is just beginning, but is eager to break through and prove his worth as a college prospect.

"I plan to go to a Memphis camp, Ole Miss and a lot of the smaller colleges around here," Euell said. "I want to get to as many camps as I can."

On Thursday, Euell spent the afternoon on the campus of Mississippi State working to show the Bulldog coaches that he is worthy of their considerations for the 2017 signing class.

"I think it went really well today," Euell said. "I got a lot of reps in and I caught a lot of balls, so I feel like I did good. Coach Gonzales is a great coach. He has a lot of energy. He is in to great route running and he really helps you out when you come here. He really teaches you a lot."

Euell reports that Coach Gonzales really stresses execution and effort.

"He just wants you to do your best in each drill and to do it at full speed," Euell said. "He makes sure we have our arms driving and that we are very precise with our routes. He wants you to really break on the ball when you change directions."

Mississippi State has been a home away from home for Euell, but he is open to all options when it comes to his own college decision.

"I feel at home here, because I am from here, but I want to feel at home wherever I go," Euell said. "This is a good place, but no matter where I go I want to find a place that I am comfortable with and feel like I am part of a family."
