As the Tom Brady era in New England comes to a close in 2020, Patriots 2019 fourth round draft pick Jarrett Stidham takes center stage as the early front runner to take over at quarterback in New England.
While the expectations to replace the games greatest quarterback are already high, the 23 year old kid out of Stephenville, Texas learned about pressure early in life playing high school football for one of the premiere programs in the Lone Star State.
As a senior, Stidham completed 183 of 260 passes for 2,934 yards with 35 touchdowns. He also rushed for 969 yards and 15 touchdowns.
Take a look back at Stidham’s high school career when he was a highly touted recruit next to many top quarterbacks in today’s NFL courtesy of a Bleacher Report profile piece from 2015.
“Jarrett Stidham is one of the most sought-after high school quarterbacks in the country and the hope of a football-crazed town — Stephenville, Texas — seeking glory. In this video, you’ll meet Jarrett, hear why he’s so talented and join him on his pressure-filled journey toward a coveted sixth state championship.”
