The Illinois season is rapidly approaching and this past Friday night, I was able to head out to Northbrook and caught QBWON’s workout led by Byron Dawkins. The group of players consisted of quarterbacks, wide receivers, tight ends, running backs, linebackers and defensive backs. Here are the players that stood out at evening.

2022 Quarterback Brandon RogersBrandonRogers5'10" | QBMt. Carmel | 2022IL, Mt. Carmel (5’11” and 187lbs) @Brandon_Rogers8

I’ve seen Rogers since the summer and he continues to develop, getting better and better each time. He shows great footwork with an extremely strong arm, his baseball background shows.

Rogers has a traditional arm-slot, but when he’s on the move, the arm angles can change without the accuracy suffering. Rogers even took a few reps as a wide receiver, showing his impressive athletic abilities. I’m really excited to see how he fares this spring.

2022 Quarterback Carson Vandello, St. Francis (6’ and 150lbs) @CVandello

My first time seeing Vandello and what shows right away is his arm strength and how the ball just flies out of his hands. He’s a bit slight in stature but very good footwork and ball placement.
