Will Grier, a possibility to start next year as a true freshman at Florida, threw nine touchdowns in his team’s playoff opening win. Grier plays at Davidson Day School just north of Charlotte, N.C. He was 21 of 23 for 439 yards and 9 TDs. On the season, he has now thrown for 3,892 yards and 62 touchdowns with only 11 interceptions, and he has rushed for 1,135 yards and 11 touchdowns. If his team should reach the state championship round, he would play two more games. At this pace he’d likely finish with about 4,500 to 5,000 yards passing with about 70-75 touchdowns, and 1,500 yards rushing.
For his career, he now has thrown for 13,468 yards and 180 touchdowns, while rushing for 2,839 yards and 29 touchdowns. He has only played three years of varsity because the school didn’t have varsity football when he was a freshman, so he played junior varsity.
