Player to Watch: Logan Clarke, QB/Mercer
Height: 6’1 weight: 186
Logan Clarke guided the Mustangs to a 9-3 finish and a trip to the District 10 Class A Semifinal. Number 7 completed 56.5% of his passes (166-294) while tossing for over 2,400 yards and 27 touchdowns. Clarke also gained 644 yards on the ground (5.1 ypc) while scoring 4 more touchdowns.
The Mustangs’ signal caller has outstanding size and features great athletic ability. Known to evade incoming defenders, Logan’s able to get out of the pocket and keep his eyes focused down field. He completed under 50% just twice last season as he displayed an accurate arm more often than not. Clarke passed for over 220 yards five times during a six-week stretch. Over the course of his last six contests, he threw for 18 scores and just 4 interceptions.
Mercer and Clarke will begin 2014 at Eisenhower on August 29.
Tomorrow: Joe Falasca, WR/Western Reserve
