Best passing QB you ever saw at the HS level?


Recommended Posts

The best I seen in person was the Plant teams with Aaron Murray and Robert Mavre at the helm. The numbers were eye popping. They were shattering prep state records every year. The offenses were so much fun to watch. Especially in a state where sophisticated passing teams are non existent. 

Aaron Murray went on to be the all time leader in passing yards and passing touchdowns in SEC history

Aaron Murray

QB 2010-13
Georgia Bulldogs

Aaron Murray rewrote the record book for the Bulldogs throughout his four years in Athens. He arrived after Matthew Stafford left and had a ton of hype behind him for what he might become. Again, in the record books, he lived up to that. Murray is the career leader in passing yards (13,166) and touchdowns (121) at Georgia, both by a wide margin, while also holding the single-season records in both of those categories as well. He’s definitely deserving of a spot on Georgia’s modern-era Mount Rushmore.

Even if you wanted to dock Murray some points for writing the record book in Athens simply because he was a four-year starter, there are plenty of players in prestigious programs who don’t accomplish that. However, despite all of the numbers, the Dawgs simply weren’t always on top when he was filling up the box score.

Georgia went just 6-7 in Murray’s first season at the helm. Though they rebounded and went 10-4 the following season and then 12-2 the year after, their success dipped in Murray’s final season with the Bulldogs as the team went just 8-5 on the year. Perhaps even more than that, UGA won just one bowl game in four appearances with Murray as the starter.

The statistical dominance never amounted to much in the NFL. Selected in the fifth round of the 2014 draft by the Kansas City Chiefs. He was released by them prior to the 2016 season and bounced around the league but never saw an NFL snap in the regular season. Murray had stints in both the short-lived AAF and XFL but his pro career never came close to his one at Georgia.
