Many accomplished Texas high school quarterbacks have come through Stephenville (Texas) High School. Current head coach Joseph Gillespie has been working at Stephenville High long enough to see most of them.
Some went on to the NFL, some went on to college careers, others found themselves doing something outside of football. But to those associated with or who follow Stephenville football, they're easily recalled, whether simply for their terrific careers or for leading the Yellowjackets to state titles.
Jarrett Stidham could be the next great Stephenville quarterback -- even colleges are betting on it with scholarship offers to the 2015 prospect -- and he hasn't even started as a varsity quarterback yet.
"Oh he has the potential, certainly," Gillespie said.
