Nate Burdette, QB, Maranatha Academy (Gilmore)
Maranatha senior Nate Burdette is in his third, full year starting at quarterback for his father, Bryan. Burdette has passed for 3,664 career yards and 64 touchdowns, while adding 893 rushing yards and 14 scores. Thus far this season, Burdette has passed for 442 yards and nine scores in a pair of 52-0 halftime blowouts of KC East and Altoona-Midway. The Eagles get one more tune up this week against an improved Colony-Crest team before district play starts with a challenge against No. 5 Madison. Burdette and returning all-state receiver Brock West will want to sharpen their skills on Friday before a grueling district slate that includes trips to Madison, Burlingame, and Lebo.
