Two years and 3221 yards later, The Calvary Christian Warriors will be introducing a new quarterback. Richie Mize has been the starter for the last three seasons for the Warriors and helped increase the win total from three wins in 2015 to five wins 2016 under head football coach Todd Yoder. But now he will turnover the football to the next man in line as graduation calls. Over his career, Mize played in 20 games, threw for 3221 yards, averaging 161.1 yards per game, throwing 21 TD and 16 interceptions.
Well…who is next in line? Penciled in is Alex Laccabue. The rising senior passer has waited his time and now ready to seize the moment. According to his hudl highlights below, Alex played on all three sides of the ball and according to Maxpreps.com he appeared in three games at quarterback while playing almost every game on defense. His 35 total tackles was good enough to place him in the top 10 (tacklers) on his team. Threw just 17 passes, completing 7 passes for 56 yards and 3 interceptions.
“Alex is a natural leader and has earned the respect of his teammates. He shows up everyday and works hard to improve his game.” – Todd Yoder, Calvary Christian head football coach
Expectations are high this season for Laccabue’s production as he will likely be the starting QB and the Warriors have acquired some really good talent via transfers. Alex throws a good ball and is able to read defenses to make the correct pass. He also has pretty good mechanics with a quick release.
