2012 Player Spotlights: Frank Seurer

Frank Seurer.
Frank Seurer
Olathe South

Position: Quarterback
Height: 6-foot-1
Weight: 180 lbs.
Year: Senior

Stat to Note
In last year's 6A state title game Seurer completed 4 of 5 passes for 183 yards and one touchdown, including a bomb that went for 99-yards burning the Wichita Heights secondary.

Scouting Report
Seurer seems to find a way to get the job done regardless of the circumstances.  When you watch him play there's not a whole lot that jumps out at you.  He's not physically imposing, he doesn't have an absolute cannon for an arm and he doesn't have Mike Vick's scrambling ability, but what he does have is a knack for winning.  And in his two years as the starting quarterback at Olathe South he's won as many big games as anybody.

Suerer put up what proved to be pretty gaudy numbers lat season compared to the rest of the league.  He completed 69 passes for a resounding 1,598 yards (an incredible 23.2 yards per competion average) and 12 touchdowns.  His passing yardage total ranked second in the league, while his passing touchdowns total tied for third most.

The competitive juices are going to be flowing for the right to the claim as the Sunflower League's best quarterback in 2012.  Brad Strauss and Kyle McFarland are roaming out in Lawrence at LHS and Free State, respectively, and meanwhile guys like SM East's Jordan Darling and Olathe East's John Blazevic look to be in for special years as well.  It's Seurer, however, that could quietly sneak up and grab the torch by the end of the season.  He's returning with two years of starting experience under his belt (including a 19-5 record as a starter) to quarterback the team with arguably the most returning talent in the league.  That's a pretty good recipe for success.
