2020 QB Quaid GardnerNorthside Christian H.S (St. Petersburg, FL)
Gardner is the 1st ranked QB Player for Total Offense Yards in Class 2A Region 3 in the St FL. The QB has amassed over 1500 yds both through the air and on the ground. Gardner has taken his game to another level as he has become the full time starter for the Mustangs. He's has managed an 8-2 record this season and will lead his team into post-season play in the up-coming week. QB Breakdown: Adequate size at 6'2" 190. He displays nice touch and can move in the pocket with his feet. Throws a nice deep ball. Mechanics still needs a bit fine tuning as he will grow and mature as a QB at the next level. The lack of QB coaching has caused some deficiencies in this area. He's definitely capable of making all the throws as he has a very strong arm. Deliverers the ball on time and fits balls in tight areas, the ball rips as it leave his hands. Running ability has earned the Dual-Threat title as he has the ability to escape pressure, he's a 4.7 40 kid that has deceptive speed.
Analysis: Quaid Gardner is definitely a prospect that can play at the next level, Here's why: He has the size and arm strength to compete at any level. He was at 8A Palm Harbor University High School the prior three season and unfortunately went through 3 different coordinators and to his defensive, didn't receive half the training he's gotten in the past few months. He's been selected to play in the Pinellas All-Star Classic
With room to grow and progression, I know in the right fit-offense he will flourish within the system. Plays with a poise and savvy thats unmatched Projection: is a lower FCS Type QB High end D2.
