Two invitations to this year’s Elite 11 quarterback competition were handed-out Sunday at The Opening Los Angeles Regional.

Bishop Gorman and Texas A&M-recruit Tate Martell, who is considered a 5-star prospect punched his ticket to the event that will be held later this year at Nike World Headquarters in Oregon.

Martell has led the Gaels to two championships in his time at the helm of the program that comes in to 2016 with seven straight Division I titles.

According to Gorman’s stats on MaxPreps, Martell has passed for 5,145 yards and 72 touchdowns with only eight interceptions.  He’s completed over 58 percent of his passes and has a quarterback rating of 132.1.

Also earning a berth to the Elite 11 was Southern California QB Chase Garbers from Corona del Mar High School.  Two weekends ago in Orlando, IMG Academy (Florida) quarterback Kellen Mond punched his ticket to Oregon.
