Today we take a look at some of the top gunslingers in the DFW area who had impressive week one starts. The majority of these quarterbacks you may know and some you may not. A lot of guys had breakout starts who were just freshmen from last season and are coming into this season unknown. So let’s take a look at some of the top QBS from week 1.
Josh Hoover (22), Rockwall Heath
Josh played exceptional all game long and showcased why he’s one of the best in his class. The Indiana Hoosiers commit was flexing his arm strength and perfected footwork and timing on all of his passes. He throws the football almost effortlessly and can float to receivers lobbing the ball well over defenders heads. Very special QB who will be this season and at the next level.
Stats: 19 of 24 for 406 yards passing 5 TDS
Jacob Porter (22), Timber Creek
This quarterback is a gunslinger and severely under the radar. At 6’2 one hundred-eighty pounds Jacob passes the eye test at the QB position and does so in his play as well. This quarterback can throw a fifty yard bomb down field of his back leg. He doesn’t always have to set his feet to throw strikes and throws on the run very well. I think this is a hidden gem of a prospect who could have a breakout senior campaign.
Stats: 31 of 44 for 400 yards passing 70% completion rating 5 TDs
Garret Rangel (22), LoneStar
Garret flashed his perfect footwork and impressive velocity on the ball on out route throws and throws to receivers in some pretty tight spaces in the middle of the field. Rangel even showed off his legs in the game, throwing beautifully on the run towards the sideline and tucking and running with the ball.
Stats: 15 of 18 for 304 yards passing with a 0.833% completion rating and 4 TDs

Dylan Raiola (24) Burleson
Raiola has 7 divison I offers going into this season from schools like Baylor, Florida State, Georgia and others. Raiola is at the top of the quarterback charts along with a few others. Many could argue Raiola is one of the best in his class with his strong arm and elite athleticism. Railoa should be a special one for many years to come and one of the top QBs in the country by the time his high school career is over.
Stats: 20 of 27 for 291 yards passing with 2 TDS and 1 INT
Trever Ham (24), McKinney
Coaches if you don’t know you should know sophomore quarterback Trever Ham. Ham had a breakout first game and impressed many with is back shoulder fades and pose out there on the field. Ham is 5’11” and one hundred and sixty-five pounds and still has time to grow and add to his skill set. I say this QB is a special one for he future to keep your eye on and apparently one who will be scoring points for Mckinney for years to come.
Kaden Anderson(23), Soutlake Carroll
Kaden had a breakout game for southlake carroll in the absence of star QB Quinn Ewers. Kaden had some bug shoes to fill wain gn to the first matchup of the season and he did not dissaopint. The entire Dragon offense had a field day and made impressive first starts of the season. Impressive outing for Anderson and will be interesting to see if he continues to build upon his success.
Stats: 16 of 24 for 261 yards passing with 3TDs
Kaden Brown (23), Midlothian
Kaden is a true dual-threat quarterback that can absolutely torch defenses through the air. Brown was impressive in both the running and passing game with the football putting out an impressive first week performance. I say this quarterback stock continues to rise his stock and play great for the rest of the season. Definitely one player to keep a look out for this season.
Stats: 15 of 24 for 187 passing and 3 TDs
