St. Thomas Aquinas (FL) QB wins Rivals Quarterback Challenge

Two juniors-to-be QB’s needed overtime to decide the winner of the first-ever Rivals Quarterback Challenge on Sunday.  St. Thomas Aquinas (Florida) quarterback Jake Allen defeated Chase Brice of Grayson High School (Georgia) in a tiebreaker that Rivals described as its version of H-O-R-S-E where the competitors needed to spell Q-B-C.

Allen, who recently transferred from Cardinal Gibbons (Florida), is a 3-star recruit, while Brice is listed currently a 4-star prospect.  Allen already has 11 college offers, as does Brice.

Rivals national recruiting director Mike Farrell said this about Allen’s victory -—

“Allen is a great winner for the first time. He’s a kid that I think is going to get a ton of offers. Obviously he is playing for a great program and that’s going to raise his profile.”

The event, which had 15 total competitors, was held at M&T Bank Stadium, home of the NFL’s Baltimore Ravens.
