Freshman? Class of 2017? Yes and Yes.
6'2 and 180 pound quarterback Bailey Hockman has led his McEachern team to the quarterfinals is Georgia's largest classification is just a freshman.
The lefty has good size, a quick release, and an excellent arm. He led McEachern's comeback against once beaten Hughes on the road in the rain last week.
McEachern is loaded with young talent including juniors Chuma Edoga and Taj Griffin, four stars on the offensive line and running back respectively. But the field general under center is the youngest of them all as he's just a freshman.
Hockman has a long career ahead of him at McEachern and beyond, and his freshman season was extended with a comeback victory last week. Here is a look at him in action against Hughes. If this is the first time you're seeing him, I'd venture a guess it won't be the last. Hockman is going to be a heavily recruited quarterback for years to come.
