ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Take it from Denver Broncos defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio, there's no sense steering a kid to play linebacker if he can throw the ball like his son Luke can.
The senior at Valor Christian High School in suburban Denver is a Division I passing prospect who has committed to Oklahoma State with Oregon State and Alabama trying to change his mind.
Said Del Rio with a hardy laugh, "It's a good time to be a quarterback."
That's true whether it's in the preps or the pros.
Passing-fueled offenses in the NFL are better than ever, and more than half of the league's QBs are on pace to throw for 4,000 yards. That would shatter the record of 10 set in 2009 and tied last year.
