Edmondson QB one to watch in 2009

The quarterback to watch last year in Baltimore City was Dunbar's Jonathan Perry, who signed with UAB last month.

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.
