Cache enjoys QB options
Several competitions for starting quarterback spots are ongoing with at schools across the area, but you'd be hard pressed to find one with four more diverse candidates than Cache.
Two seniors Matt Serratte and Blake Crosby along with a move-in junior from Eisenhower, Terrance Young, and 6-foot-7 junior Cole Lehr have seen reps in practice so far.
The Bulldogs have a variety of options, no doubt.
Coaches got an even better look at them after Thursday night's scrimmage against Tuttle, but Cache head coach John Herbert saw enough beforehand to discuss the players' strengths.
Serratte, a strong runner with some proven throwing ability, started several games last year, which is a positive.
"I think you could always say the experience of being a starter at any position on the varsity level offense or defense helps you with the speed of the game and be ready for action," Herbert said of Serrate.
Crosby "throws a really good ball," the coach said, and has shown a knack for understanding coverages. Both seniors have been quick to pick up Cache's new shotgun spread, multiple-formation offense.
As for the juniors, Lehr's height is a unique and advantageous characteristic, while Young's physical ability running and throwing the football have stood out.
"(Lehr) is a great teammate, another guy who has improved throwing the football. He's obviously got an advantage being able to see over that line," Herbert said. "(Young) is new to us, but he's been able to run the offense like the other guys. He's got a good arm, good speed and he's a big strong kid. He's a very good athlete."
