With playoff games in the state being split up between Friday Night and Saturday, Prep Redzone wants to focus on more players in less games.

Other players below have the semi-finals next weekend. Here are the stars of Friday Night’s contests.

QB Cael WelkerCaelWelker5'11" | QBJackson | 2021StateMO, Senior, Jackson (5’11, 185) Five touchdowns in the first half allows you a break in the second stanza. The senior signal-caller was hitting on all cylinders in the first 24 minutes of Jackson’s blowout win over Chaminade. Welker threw for three touchdowns and ran for two more. Welker has been consistently good for over three seasons and has put up video game type numbers. What he lacks in size and stature, the right-handed snap thrower makes up for in moxie, toughness, leadership and field awareness. I know quarterback is a position that college coaches need to get a feel for a player and see him up close. Covid-19 has limited many opportunities for players but none more than QBs.
