Porter Gaud QB leads team despite young age

Steven Duncan is the sophomore starting quarterback for Porter Gaud. Steven Duncan is the sophomore starting quarterback for Porter Gaud.

Steven Duncan is 6-5, 15 years old, and has already taken over the helm as starting quarterback at Porter Gaud. The quarterback transferred to Porter Gaud over the summer from Ashley Ridge, and won the starting role during the summer months.

In just three games with the Cyclones, he has shown why. Duncan has thrown over 750 yards for 9 touchdowns to date. Coach Rick Reetz jokes, "We have no problem scoring points right now."

"He is not only mature physically, he is mature mentally. He is a great kid, and a great competitor," says Coach Reetz. "One of the things that has impressed me, is he'll come in my office before the game, and grab our play sheet and sit down, and write all the plays down and tell me all the assignments and makes sure he understands all the reads. You don't see that in a young man his age."

Coming in as a transfer, Duncan knew he would have to compete to win the starting job. "You have to prove yourself through competition or you are not getting the job, that's just how it is. it's not just given to you, it's a competition." Duncan continues, "I believe everyone has a chance, you just have to prove yourself through competition."

Competition. It's obviously a word Duncan is familiar with, and an idea he strives for. Reetz says, "He has got so much upside and so much potential, you are going to be hearing a lot from him the next few years."
