Lucious Set For Monster 2016
West Lowndes High School Football was off and running in 2015. They had found a star in sophomore quarterback Quinshawn Lucious. The dual-threat QB throws like a pocket passer but runs like a human highlight reel.
The Panthers stormed to a nine win season only to fall short in the playoffs to the eventual 1A champions.
In the seventh game of the same Lucious went down with a bad ankle injury that would slow down his breakout season. He still finished with 834 passing yards, 503 rushing yards and a total of 15 scores.
“This past season was a good jump for my high school career,” Lucious told SES Mississippi. “Until I suffered an ankle injury in the seventh game of the season.”
Lucious says the ankle is better and he is now putting in work to become a better pocket passer and getting bigger.
If he is able to improve his pocket passing, Lucious could put up shocking numbers in 2016. He creates a serious problem for opposing defenses that want to commit to stopping the passing attack. As soon as they back off in coverage the speedster tucks the ball around the corner and is gone in a blink of an eye.
Lucious plans to use the upcoming Fortius Project as a measuring stick to see where he stands among the state’s top talent and show he belongs in the same conversation as the top athletes.
