These quarterbacks are considered by many to be amongst the top FL hs qb's from the days prior to 1980. All went on to successful careers as qb's in college, 4 of them as collegiate All-Americans. All but one played their college ball in FL. Have fun trying to recognize some of the old school uniforms.
What are their names, and where did each go to high school and college?

14-0 Vanguard, led by Daunte Culpepper, takes on defending state champion, 13-1 Bradenton Southeast and Peter Warrick. What an ending! So many great state title games in Daytona Beach back in the mid 90's.
What has me most intrigued by this team? I think they could very well have the top DE tandem in the state this year. Elijah Roberts and Jabari Ishmael are going to be a handful for any offensive line out there. Their coach has commented how facing those two each day in practice is really helping their o-line. Roberts committed to the U last month. Come next year, junior Ishmael will undoubtedly be one of the top defensive recruits in the state.
Everyone knows about the playmaking abilities of Henderson, who caught 3 TD's in last year's 8A title game in addition to winning a state 400m track title. And Pitt commit Parrish is one of the better senior backs in the state.
Though not highly recruited, dual-threat qb Brandon McDuffey showed what he could do in last year's title game, completing 5TD passes. Watch for him and Henderson to light things up this year. Will those players be enough to get them back to the title game? Of course, a lot will depend upon the players without all of the stars that are not mentioned here.
