I'd expect him to play a lot
. Like perhaps the entire second half.
He's a Soph named Nathan Densel. The Junior backup last year (Smith) didn't come out this year. He hasn't grown much since MS and the game sort of passed him by in that regard. Very
nice kid, just not a HS QB at this level.
Densel was the QB for the team at Davis that went 19-0. His job there was mostly to hand the ball off to Nick Conner and watch him score 5 TDs per game.
Barring a career ending injury or hot-shot move in, Densel will be the QB the next two years. He's a good athlete and throws a good ball. He'll be physically bigger than Demars and is a better runner IMO. Not sure he'll have Evan's accuracy. It will be nice to see him get some Varsity snaps.
He's also the oldest of 6 boys who are all good athletes (his younger brother is the 8th grade QB at Davis). Expect to hear the name "Densel" over the PA system a lot
over the next decade.
