    Andrew, like what we are seeing from our offensive guys, especially Daquan Green. I think he might be one of the biggest sleepers in the country. However I have one question, is St. Thomas Aquinas a run heavy team? I would think that with all that talent at receiver Allen would put up video game stats. I still think Allen is going to be a good QB down the road just curious about the high school production while playing on a team with receiver talent 99% of high school QB’s would sell their soul for. Thanks!

      Allen most of the time is out of the game by the time they reach halftime because his team is winning big. St. Thomas is a run heavy team though.
