Top 10 New York QBs for 2022 HS football season

NEW YORK (BVM) — When it comes to high school football, one could assume that New York isn’t going to draw the same attention as Texas or Florida. However, some diamonds in the rough could be found on the high school gridirons in the Empire State, especially at the position of quarterback.

Here are the top high school quarterbacks from New York.

Note: Stats are as of Sept. 22, 2022.

  1. Owen Johansen, Sr., Northport

Johansen is a two-sport athlete, focusing on football and lacrosse. In his senior year, Johansen has Northport off to a 1-1 start. In those games, according to MaxPreps, Johansen has combined to throw for 246 yards and two TD passes. He’s also recorded three rushing TDs this year.

  1. JP Hoak, Sr., Cazenovia

Hoak is a QB that can get it done with his arm and with his legs. In nine games last season, he passed for 1,313 yards and 12 TDs. He also rushed for 497 yards and five TDs. Hoak has led the Lakers to a 2-0 start this season. He’ll be sure to keep his head down and help the Lakers make a push come playoff time.

  1. Will Currid, Jr., Archbishop Stepinac

In his first week as a starter, Currid led Stepinac to a 51-28 win over Christ the King. Currid threw for 372 yards and three TD passes – 333 of those yards came in the first half. Now, Currid and Stepinac are off to a 3-0 start this season. So far, Currid has thrown for 963 yards, and seven touchdown passes. He’ll aim to continue his hot start as the season wears on.

  1. John Michalski, Sr., Moore Catholic

Michalski, a Sacred Heart football commit, has the Mavericks off to a 3-0 start this season. The 6-foot-2, 205-pound QB has thrown for 351 yards and seven TDs in these games. The season is just underway, but Michalski has the potential to lead Moore to a state title.

  1. Azavier Ross, Sr., Irondequoit 

With 22 (12 pass, 10 rush) total TDs in the 2021 season, Ross was primed to have a great 2022 season. But Ross and the Eagles aren’t off to the start they’d like with a 2-1 record. Nonetheless, Ross is a dynamic playmaker that makes a major impact for the Eagles when he’s on the field.

  1. Joey Tomasso, Jr., Waverly

Waverly has put up 118 points through three games with a junior QB under center. Last year, Tomasso had 31 total TDs and nearly passed for 2000 yards in 11 games. For his play, he was named New York’s second-team all-state team. Waverly is 3-0 to start the year, and one could assume it will be a tough matchup come playoff time.

  1. Craig Galea, Sr., John Jay 

Galea was an all-league QB last year when he passed for 1,469 yards and 15 TDs. However, John Jay is off to a 1-2 start this year, and Galea will have to do his best to get the Wolves back on track. 

  1. Dante Torres, Sr., St. Anthony’s

In just two games, Torres has thrown for 802 yards and eight TDs. Torres has also rushed for 103 yards and two TDs. Now the 6-foot-3 signal caller may not have a nationally recognized name, but he’s ready to lead the Friars back to the playoffs and prove he can play at the next level.

  1. Ajani Sheppard, Sr., Iona Prep

An Old Dominion football commit, Sheppard is a QB who can get the job done on the ground and through the air. Last year Sheppard threw for 2,357 yards and 22 TDs. He also rushed for 1,041 yards and recorded 16 rushing TDs. His numbers speak for themselves, and he will look to put the nation on notice in his senior year.

  1. Trey Drake, Sr., Jamestown

Drake put up quality numbers last year as a junior. He threw for 1,346 yards and 11 TD passes. His numbers may not have been eye-popping, but his play on the field did lead him to field an offer from FCS Powerhouse North Dakota State, where he is now committed to playing football for the next four seasons.
