The EFN National QB Challenge was developed for high school quarterbacks around the country to prove, beyond a doubt, who is the top-rated player in the nation. No more hype. No more resting on one’s accolades. The Challenge, with its unique design, point system, and modern technology, will determine the nation’s best high school quarterback.
The QB Challenge will be filmed and participants can gain access to their tape. This type of film is extremely valuable to the hundreds of college coaches that EFN interacts with on an annual basis. In addition, EFN can assist you in the recruiting process and offer you national exposure.
The Elite Football Network is unique in that it offers a national platform. EFN writes feature articles, conducts player interviews, posts QB Challenge video highlights, and much more. In addition, other national recruiting media outlets – Rivals.com, ESPN, and 247Sports – may be in attendance at the Challenge.
Quarterbacks that choose to participate in the Challenge will be put to the test. Passers will make throws from the shotgun and from under center. They will make a series of throws in the quick, intermediate, and deep passing games. Time to drop, time to release, and accuracy are among the items to be measured using advanced technology. All quarterbacks complete the entire circuit of throws and runs.
Quarterbacks taking part in the EFN National QB Challenge earn points for their performance. When they have finished the Challenge, each quarterback earns a score. All quarterbacks will be ranked by state, region, and a national No. 1 will be determined. All rankings will be available on EliteFootballNetwork.net.
All quarterbacks attending the EFN National QB Challenge will be put to the test in the classroom as well as on the field. Want to prove you are the complete package? Your knowledge of protections, defensive fronts, and secondary coverages will be tested. Similar to an NFL Combine experience, high school quarterbacks will complete a written test and complete a Live Chalk Talk presentation where they will display their knowledge of various on-field situations.
The EFN National QB Challenge attracts the top high school quarterbacks in the country who are searching for more than just hype. The Challenge tests quarterbacks’ abilities in the quick passing game, intermediate passing, downfield passing game, and incorporates elements of the modern dual-threat player. Quarterbacks leave the challenge knowing exactly where they stand in comparison to other high school quarterbacks all over the country.
Instead of hype about arm talent and off-platform throws, Elite Football Network gives high school quarterbacks true measurables. How quickly can he throw the hitch from the shotgun? How accurate is he in throwing the post route? These questions and many more are answered as high school quarterbacks from around the country are challenged to make throws, make reads, and even run the football. Want to see where you rank? Attend the EFN National QB Challenge.
