ShowMeMizzou.com first caught a glimpse of Staley QB Trent Hosick 6'1" 219 when he was a freshman at Ozark high school in Southwest Missouri. Hosick came in for the injured starter and proceded to throw for 350 yards and displayed a maturity at the position beyond his years.
Fast forward a couple of years and the family moving to the Kansas City area, and you have Hosick as the starting QB for the Staley Falcons after having to sit out his sophomore season. What Hosick has done in the first 6 games of the season is lead his team to a perfect 6-0 record while rushing for 930 yards on 100 carries and 13 touchdowns, he has also displayed a deft passing ability, completing 65% of his passes (43 of 66) for 580 yards and 5 touchdowns with only 1 interception.
While his passing numbers may not be that high at this point, the reason is that his running ability along with teammate and Missouri Tiger 2012 commit Morgan Steward, has been nearly unstoppable.
ShowMeMizzou.com was at this past Friday night's Staley vs Grandview game and saw the Falcons offense unleash it's passing game with Hosick completing 12 of 17 passes for 217 yards. Trent also ran the ball 9 times for 86 yards and 4 touchdowns for good measure.
