Class 1A Football Top Returning QB’s

In hopes of having a 2020 Football season I am going to start with Top Returning Players by Position like I have for the past few years.  My top returning QB’s are going to be picked by Stats, Returning Players, and team tradition.  I will give my top 10 and then 6 or more potential QB’s.  1A is a bit different with most teams running the ball and I have made sure to add the running QB’s more to the mix.  I don’t mind hearing feedback if I missed someone.  Also, if your team has a new QB with no stats or any information I will have a hard time picking them.

  1. Good list, but I think one you will be seeing in the post season is Yahir Chavez – Hotchkiss – Sr. Took his team from a 1 win season in 2018 to a 2 loss regular season in 2019 (both losses to Meeker). He was injured in the second Meeker game and not able to participate in the post season OT loss to Highland. Not sure about stats or to say that you “missed” him, just that he will be a force in 1A.


    1. Just now when I was working on the RB list I realized I missed him. He will be added to the QB list today. I did not know he was not in the game against Highland. Thank you for the comment!
