Loved watching Jared Humphreys at QB for the Ironmen. Every time he touched the ball, there was a chance that he was going to take it to the house. One of the best all-around athletes that I've ever seen at the high school level. Definitely one of SE Ohio's best dual threat QBs.

Another one from Jackson is Joey Boggs. Until Humphreys, he was the best QB I had seen at Jackson. Even though he didn't get a chance too often, Joey could really throw the football. He was a great leader as well...always stepped up and made a play when it was needed. As was mentioned about Jonathan Eaton above, he could hide the football with the best of them.

Interesting note about Jonathon Eaton. His family lived in the house that I grew up in years before my family moved in. Wish the Eaton family would have stayed in Jackson!

Thats is interesting...my mother was the Eaton's babysitter while she was in high school...so she has got some interesting tales of Jonathon and his bros :lol: The house they moved into was right down the street from hers.

Jonathon Eaton of WheelersBurg (best at hiding the ball I ever seen !)
Both were great to watch !


Wheelersburgs got another one playing right now that is just as good at hiding the ball on the fake and going around the end with it and he's only a sophmore. He scored that game winning TD against Minford last Saturday on an incredible fake and went almost untouched for 65 yards. I believe he's had a couple TD's called back this year because of the plays being blown dead when the officials didn't realize he still had the ball and that used to happen to Eaton all the time. I remember Jonathon got to the point that once he was in the open he would hold the ball up so the officials could see it and they still blew it dead a few times. Brandon Schankweiler is the boys name and by the time he is a senior I believe he will be amongst the best to ever play in this area.

I`m sure I`ve seen Him ! I now live in Minford, and have for 20 years. He is good, but not like Eaton.

Problem with Chris Smith was he tried to throw a 5 or 10 yard pass like he did a 65 yard pass!A back would come out of the backfield and he would tattoo them with a 95mph fastball,NO TOUCH!But you are right about the deep ball,I have never seen anyone throw it as well as him except maybe his older brother!

I watched Nate Davis (Bellaire) play against Ironton in Athens a few years ago. Playoff game, 3OT thriller.. I know you 'Tiger Faithful' were there.

Eaton was tough. He had a rocket arm and a ball fake that destroyed our defense. he could run ok too. He is probably the best overall athlete to come out of Scioto Co in the last 25 years.

I watched Nate Davis play against Ironton, tremendous QB. Glad to see him leading Ball St.

Mark Swinning was a very good QB for Waverly during the early 90's. He had a great arm, but he couldnt run near as well as Eaton.

I would have to say Joe Ferguson from SV. I watched this guy and played against him. He was unbelievable.

I'll tell you a funny Mark Swinning story. I was playing baseball at West, a sophmore pitcher starting my first SOC game. In the #5 hole was this big geeky lookin guy with glasses in the first inning. I had walked a runner earlier, so one on first. I looked at this guy and decided to groove a first pitch fastball to get ahead in the count. That big geeky lookin dude smacked the cork out of the ball and hit it dead center over the fence. The guy on first missed 3 rd base as he was rounding it. We had 2 outs and apealed to the ump. He was called out. So the home run didnt count. I went back to the dugout and asked my coach, who is that guy that hit that ball. He said Mark Swinning. (I had met him earlier that year at a party, but without the glasses.) I just shook my head. The next time he came up I left thread marks on his side. :122246

Also what was tough about Eaton was that he would fake, and then he carried out his fake out to the line of scrimmage but he would always jog. At least one time in every game he would fake to the RB and then carry out his fake outside to the line of scrimmage .........jogging.......then all of the sudden he would produce the ball and start jetting down the sideline. He got us once when I was a senior. And we watched the Minford tape that week (which was a really good game) and Eaton was jogging up-field past the LOS about 5 yards and then just took off. Never seen anyone be able to hide the ball like Eaton. I thought I had his fingers in a pile one time, and I was intent on breaking them (it was our only hope) unfortuanatly I was bending back the fingers of our defensive end........ :122248

or am I thinking too quick


I think he did. he would have been one of the best qb in the nfl , but he played with a bad elbow and ruined his arm. They didnt know that much back then , you just played hurt.

If you go back to the early 80s... Taggart from Nelsonville-York has to be one of the best... AND he led them to a state title!

SP's Smith, Eaton from 'Burg and Walls from Waverly.
On a side note: I read the thread from West_Sider and I can only hope that you NEVER have kids or are in anyway allowed to be affiliated with a sports organization where you can influence a child. What type of twisted mentality enables you to think that injuring an opponent because you can't beat them straight up is funny? This is why the West side has gotten such a bad rap over the last 30-40 years. Flame me if you want, I don't care. I am just saying what most of Southern Ohio has thought for a long time. Tell me I mis-read your post and I will humbly apologize.

Eaton and Kaskey from Burg. I do not agree with Shank as an all time great. He is athletic and can fake but his arm is a major weekness and yes grade wise he is only a soph but he is already 16 or17 so how much arm strenght can we hope to gain? 5'9" does not help here either...I can see him being a running back by the time his senior season rolls around.

Andy Clark from Chesapeake 1999 11-1 was a GREAT QB, argueably won of the greatest team ever at Chesapeake. Lead the Peake to the second round playoff loss against Amanda Clearcreek (state champs that year) now is on the Coaching staff for Chesapeake and could be next head coach for Chesapeake when Davis leaves.

Have never seen Eaton play, but have heard MANY stoires!
Shankweiler has to develop an arm and the skill to look off his "favorite" receiver & look at another open one. But he's young and that will come. For where he is right now. He will be a dandy the next 2 years!

Chilly has had some great ones over the years .

Obviously Cook ,but that was longer than 25 years ago.

I'd have to mention these 4 in no particular order .

Knights - Enuff said
Porter- Even more athletic than Knights
Kidnocker- 3 year starter when sophs just didn't start :)
Skinner- BesT Arm and actually played at Marshall

Best I've seen in SVC hands down Todd Shoemaker .. Shoe was unstoppabe :)

Outside the county would have to be Nate Davis

A little more than 25 years at Chilli. besides Cook, how about Mike Ratzlaff, a 3 year starter 71 thru 73. Geoff Duncan and Jemar Harris in the 80's and Adam Porter in the late 90's. Skinner and Knights the last 7 years. Go Cavs!

andy clark from peake definately makes the list. . .98' 99'

McComas from peake would be just out of the top 25 but the best I got to play with in highschool, a college qb so. . yah

qb from waverly in 02' and 03' was one of the best I've played against along with kaskey from burg

Micheal Hill from fairland was pretty dangerous in 03' with that playoff team. . he had the skills anyone would want from a big time qb. . just never turned out that way, what a cannon too, 90 something fastball

:lol: :lol: :lol: Mike Tipton: West 1984. Scott York would have been except for favorites. :!: :!:


Smith Kid (South Point) was an awsome arm. He would throw from 1 knee through the goal post in pre-game.

Howell from West 1990 was not bad.


How about Randy Jewell (Northwest 1983)
