FOUR & MORE: Best Inland Area QBs


1. Robert Webber, Corona Centennial — Led his team to the CIF-Southern Section Inland Division title and had one of the finest statistical seasons (248 comp., 412 att., 3,968 yards, 41 TDs) of any junior in Inland Area history.

2. Brent Boehm, Menifee Paloma Valley — Finally had the breakout season everyone was waiting for — throwing 22 TDs and more than 2,300 yards as the Wildcats made it to the CIF-SS Central Division semifinals last year.

3. Coltin Gerhart, Vista Murrieta — Committed to Arizona State for both football and baseball, the two-sport star must overcome all his father’s offseason adversity at Norco and find success on his own at his new one-year home.

4. Sherrion Jones, MoVal Rancho Verde — Sophomore season was cut short by a broken leg but he’s back and looking better than ever. Probably the most physically talented of any name on this list, but consistency is important.

AND MORE: Blake Barnett, Corona Santiago — Inherits an offense suited for a scrambler but will make his mark with outstanding arm strength and intelligence. Unfortunately, a playoff appearance will likely exceed expectations.

Damion Wright, Fontana Jurupa Hills — Turned heads as a sophomore, passing for 16 TDs and 2,100 yards as the Spartans advanced to the CIF-SS East Valley semifinals. His maturation will be the key to his team’s title aspirations.

Jakob Jordan, Fontana Summit — Got his feet wet last season in what turned out to be a down season for the SkyHawks. Has another year to throw to the Inland Area’s best receiver — Erik Brown — and leave a legacy of his own.

P.J. Murrieta, San Jacinto: — The kid named after a city just to the south played well enough last season to get the keys to both. Will be counted on if Tigers have any hopes of contending in the suddenly stacked Mt. Pass League.

Paul Bradvica, Riverside Note Dame — Had a fine first season as the Titans starter, passing for 23 TDs and more than 2,150 yards. A senior year with at least one league Mt. Valley League victory (0-5 in ’12) will be worth celebrating.

    I disagree with the decision to leave Raymond Padilla off of this list. He’s a winner, and tough enough he looks like he’s from Kaiser Steel and not Kaiser H.S.
