This fall, all eyes will be on Edmondson’s Jerry Lovelocke, a 6-foot-4, 205-pound pro-style quarterback.
“Jerry’s a pocket passer that’s able to scramble,” Red Storm coach Dante Jones said. “He does a lot of things that kids in high school can’t do. His football IQ is so much higher than probably the majority of quarterbacks in this area. He’s a smart kid.
“Jerry always wants to learn more and always wants to get better. He always pushes himself at every opportunity he gets. He has a large upside. We expect big things out of him this year.”
Lovelocke, a three-star prospect according to Rivals.com, threw for more than 2,000 yards and 20 touchdowns as a junior, leading Edmondson to an 8-4 record.
Jones said Lovelocke holds three scholarship offers so far, but declined to name the schools.
“We’re holding back on releasing that until he goes to the one-day camps,” Jones said. “He’s doing a lot of one-day camps. A lot of schools are expected to offer. So everything’s going real well for him.”
Lovelocke’s camp itinerary includes trips to Maryland, Rutgers, Temple, Towson, Virginia and West Virginia.
