Zach Frazer, Pat Devlin, and Jeremy Ricker are the three junior quarterbacks who seem to get the most attention in Pennsylvania. Most fans are unaware that there could quite possibly be six or more D-1A quarterbacks in the state this year. One of the top gunslinger's in Western (Pa.) is Penn Trafford's Tyler Huether (pronounced: Heater).
Huether, 6-1 and 190 pounds, had a stellar junior season completing
127 of 209 attempts, for 2,209 yards and 21 touchdowns. He only threw
six interceptions. Huether earned first-team All-Conference (Quad
East), Pennsylvania Football News Honorable Mention All-State,
and Pittsburgh Post-Gazette "Fabulous 22" honors as a junior.
Several teams have shown an interest in the WPIAL quarterback
including, Pittsburgh, Penn State, West Virginia, Iowa, Indiana,
Boston College, Wisconsin, North Carolina, Purdue, Louisville,
Kentucky, Akron, and Notre Dame.
Huether was scheduled to attend junior day programs over the weekend
at Pittsburgh and Maryland. This spring he plans on attending the Nike
combine at Penn State (4/30), the Adidas Elite Combine at the
University of Pittsburgh (5/14), and the MSL Combine at Gateway high
school in Monroeville (Pa.) on (5/7).
What attributes does Huether possess that make him an elite quarterback?
"I think I am accurate, I read defenses well, and I call most of my
own plays or have the ability to audible at the line of scrimmage,"
There are still a few things Huether would like too improve with his
game as well.
"I'd like to improve my running ability, I think I need to get a
little faster," Huether said "I would like to improve my arm strength
As far as early favorites go, Huether appears to favor the local schools.
"I like Pittsburgh, Penn State, West Virginia, Purdue, Wisconsin,
Indiana, and Iowa," Huether said. "I'd like to be closer, but you just
have to weigh out your options."
PantherReport.com will have an update on Huether and other's who
attended the junior day festivities.
