Santiam Christian: Confident with Carley
ADAIR VILLAGE, Ore. - The Santiam Christian Eagles are coming off a season in which they fell in the quarterfinals of the 3-A State Tournament. The team believes their ticket to returning to stardom is senior quarterback Grant Carley.
In fact, the whole team is feeling pretty confident with Carley under center this season. "He's going to be dangerous, very accurate throwing the ball," said Head Coach Matt Bain, "he's real knowledgeable, he could run the offense, he doesn't need us coaches to do it and so he's a great guy to have up there."
I think he's the best quarterback in the state in 3-A, maybe even higher
Fellow senior Kyle Paratore has high praise for his quarterback, "I think he's the best quarterback in the state in 3-A... maybe even higher. Great vision, can fly the ball down field, he can scramble, he can run, sit in the pocket, throw it - he can run the offense by himself all the time. He's a great quarterback."
The Eagles open their season at Harrisburg Friday, September 1st.
