A Closer look at Jack Abraham

Jack Abraham out of Oxford, Miss., took over the reigns as the quarterback for the Chargers last season and set several school records along the way.

The name Jack Abraham has been heard through the Oxford area since pee wee football with the Buccaneers. His father, Michael Abraham, started the pee wee travel squad back in the early 2000's. It was no surprise to the people who knew about the Chargers' program that Jack had so much success in his first season as the starting quarterback.

Oxford head coach, Johnny Hill, said at the Hoover 7-on-7 tournament last summer that he is the best quarterback he had coached which dates back to the 1980's. This was before he ever took a snap in a live game for the Chargers.

If you watch his video closely you can see how polished he is with his techniques and footwork. Jack is always keeping his head down-the-field while staying in the pocket to make plays. He is not one to jump out of the pocket much, but if needed, he can make plays on the run.

The 6' 0", 190-pound quarterback was 285-468 for 3, 572 yards for the season. He threw for 38 touchdowns and was named 1st Team All-State in Class 5A while helping lead the Chargers to a school record 14 wins and to the State Championship game.

One knock on the rising junior is his size. Yes, he is probably pushing 6' 0", 190-pounds but Abraham is still just a 10th grader. He has put on 15 pounds since the start of his sophomore season. He is definitely you will be hearing much more about through the coming years.

Jack was one of the few underclassmen that was invited to the prestigues Los Angeles Elite 11 camp in December.
