If we are blessed to land this young man, as I think we will, we are getting a high character kid with tons of ability....article from last September...sounds like he as the perfect tutor in high school...FWIW they went all the way last season and won the CIF Championship in one of the top leagues in the state of CA.....
Rest Here:"It's tough, but he makes me so much better," Stanton said of the challenge Welch presents. "He makes me a better quarterback. He makes me a better person."
Welch, in his 23rd season as a head coach and 45th season coaching football, understands that he's not the easiest person to train under.
"I don't know how a player would say it's not tough playing for me," he said. "I always feel when we reach the edge of the envelope, I push the envelope further."
Stanton is a straight-A student who can run and pass. His toughness is unquestioned, and his ability to perform under pressure is proven. Now it's up to Welch to fine tune and bring out even more ability.
"I think Johnny Stanton has a wonderful future," Welch said. "He's intelligent, he's creative, he's focused. He's a caring person with lots of gifts. I have to help him develop his potential, which is immense."
