Hi all: I thought while I’m busy putting together the team pages for our 2012 PrepXtra football preview magazine, I would put up this poll of who the top quarterback in the area is. We have some good ones who return after very strong 2011 seasons. Who knows, I may go with who you decide for the 2012 quarterback of the preseason All-Area team.
Here’s a brief look at each candidate. You can vote one time for any of the four candidates, or vote for your own:
Frankie Palmer, La Serna: The junior accounted for just over 2,200 yards and 23 touchdowns in leading La Serna to the CIF-SS Southeast championship game last season. He threw for 1,677 yards and 16 TDs.
Timony Walsh, Cantwell: The senior threw for 2,008 yards and 24 TDs, leading the Cardinals to the second round of the divisional playoffs.
Paul Telles, St. Paul: The senior threw for nearly 2,000 yards and 16 TDs for the Swordsmen, who finished 7-3.
Gerry Myres, La Mirada: The senior threw for 1,685 yards and 15 TDs in leading the Matadores to the Suburban League title and a trip to the divisional semifinals.
Sean Sparling, La Habra: The senior threw for 1,556 yards and 17 TDs in leading the Highlanders to Freeway League title and a trip to the divisional semifinals.
