J.W. Walsh of Denton Guyer has the early nod as the top quarterback in Texas in 2011 and he has shown why at several camps already this summer and with one still on his schedule. Walsh, who attended the one day mini-camp last Sunday and also attended the Texas Spring Game, looks to be the next dual threat quarterback.
Denton Guyer's J.W. Walsh
(6-2, 185) already has the look and the composure of a college quarterback. Walsh played in eight games as a sophomore for a very good Wildcat team that was a 4A state semifinalist. The team was 7-1 in those eight games and Walsh completed 65% of his passes for 1200 yards and seven touchdowns. Walsh also rushed for 1023 yards and seven more touchdowns.
Walsh attended the June 7 one day mini-camp at Texas and had a great time. It was his second unofficial trip to Austin as he also attended the Texas Spring Game.
"I had a great time at the (Texas) camp. It is a very well run camp. The Texas coaches are great. I like the way that they treat you like family," Walsh told Burnt Orange Beat.
Walsh worked out with fellow 2011 quarterbacks Ryan Polite (Desoto) and Michael Brewer (Lake Travis).
This week, Walsh also attended a one-day camp at Oklahoma on June 9 and was reportedly one of the standouts there that included Somerset's Stevie Dorman.
"I spun the ball a little better at OU's camp since I was able to use my own ball. At Texas, we used their balls," Walsh commented.
This Sunday, Walsh plans to attend the mini-camp at Oklahoma State, which will wrap up with college camps, but Walsh is still working on qualifying for the state 7 on 7 tournament.
Guyer plays today (Friday) in a state qualifier at Denton and will also play at Mesquite ISD qualifier next Sunday.
