As always expectations are high for the Valor Christian football season. Coming up just short this past season of another state title, the Eagles, led by quarterback Dylan McCaffrey hope to rebound. Offensively key to a title game return is the play of 2016 receiver Booker Schelhaas. Last season Schelhaas had 26 receptions and a touchdown.
The 6-4 225 pounder obviously has great size, but he also has the versatility to line up in multiple spots. Most impressive Schelhaas is a hands catcher with the ability to get yards after the catch. Further, he runs good routes and is comfortable catching in traffic.
This skill set has not gone unnoticed and the receiver currently holds an offer from Colorado School of Mines. Beyond the Mines offer Schelhaas is hearing from multiple Ivy schools. This summer Schelhaas camped at Harvard and Princeton and earlier this week he got a call from Yale. Schelhaas is also hearing from Air Force and North Dakota.
Schelhaas, along with fellow 2016 receiver Ben Waters, give Valor and McCaffrey two big targets for the passing game and the talented trio should have an impressive 2015 campaign. Games for Valor are never short of college coaches in attendance, as such look for Schelhaas, with his combination of size and talent, to bring in more offers as the season begins.
