    Also, according to your own power rankings Javon QB’d the toughest schedule this year and as stated before w/o most of his key supporting cast most of the season. So please let me know how he was overlooked?

    How can a kid like Javon Clements not be honored on this list when he was QB of a team that made it to the state semi-finals for the second straight year his passing yds and completion pct. were higher than last year he was just 1 td shy of the 20 he threw last year? He did this most of the season without his top receivers or running backs all season. When his supporting cast was out due to injury he’s been the constant. But somehow that’s not being recognized? His numbers could’ve been greater had he played past the 2nd quarter in at least 4 games this season. He was taken out early to protect him from getting hurt in several games and it seems he’s being punished for it now. When people make these votes take everything into account Javon is one of the best QBs in the state and that’s just a fact. The kid is a winner he’s won over 21 games and just lost 5 in 2 yrs.
