The Quarterback’s role in taking care of the football and being the focal leader of the offense is the fundamental reason it is viewed as the most crucial position in sports. Quarterbacks are measured in various ways, but winning is the one accurate indicator of greatness. This is what separates the good from the great.
The Quarterback position has evolved in terms of the typical body type that plays the role of it. In the past, big, strong, and tall quarterbacks were seen as the prototypical build to play the position at all levels. There has been a shift, as many smaller, more athletic quarterbacks have appeared as offenses look to utilize Quarterback’s athleticism. Those who turn on either college or NFL football will see a mix of petite, tall, athletic, and slow quarterbacks running the helm of an offense.
Aston Beierly is a young Quarterback who has played football since he was 5. He started in Pop Warner and played through 14U. In 2020, he won the D2 national championship with the Inland Valley Hurricanes. The 10th-grade student Quarterback from Chaparral High School in Temecula, California, loves playing the game of football and enjoys the challenge it brings.
Even though he plays basketball and baseball, there’s something special about the football game for Aston. He likes playing QB because of the challenge, much as mental as physical. He gets to be a part of every play, which keeps him focused and engaged. The best in football are the leadership opportunities QB receives and how the position requires constant growth.
Aston loves Drew Brees because of how he plays the game – he is not the biggest or the fastest Quarterback, but he finds ways to win. He also admires Josh Allen, Payton Manning, and Russel Wilson for their respective skills on the field.
A great QB embraces the sacrifice the position requires. He considers that a great QB can keep a team focused and motivated, whether the score is 50-0 or 0-50. A great QB holds himself accountable, which allows him to hold others responsible.
