Corona Centennial QB Tanner McKee earns first invite to Elite 11

high school football quarterbacks

Corona Centennial quarterback Tanner McKee traveled to Houston over the weekend to take part in the first 2017 Elite 11 quarterback competition, instead of waiting for the March 12th regional event here in Los Angeles.  The trip was well worth it for the senior-to-be, who was given the only invite to the Elite 11 finals that will be held in June in LA.

McKee had an outstanding junior season, leading the Huskies to a No. 10 overall ranking the High School Football America National Top 25.  McKee completed 203 of 280 passes (72.5%) for 3,522 yards with 36 touchdowns with only eight interceptions.  He also ran for 539 yards and 15 scores.

McKee is ranked as the N0. 9 Pro-Style QB college prospect by 247sports.com’s composite rankings.  He holds scholarship offers from Boise State, Brigham Young, Colorado, Georgia, Hawaii, Houston, Louisville, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, North Carolina, Oregon State, Stanford, Utah and Virginia Tech.

Corona Centennial’s only two losses last year came by a combined total of three points to No. 2 St. John Bosco (Bellflower, CA) and No. 3 IMG Academy (Bradenton, FL).
