ESPNHS will follow the weekly progress of the ESPNHS Elite 11 quarterbacks during their senior seasons. In addition we will track the top quarterback performances from around the country. The Elite 11 Tracker will be featured every Wednesday.

With just a few states kicking off this past weekend, it was one the Elite 11 MVPs who shined and put on the best performance. Recent Florida State commit Jameis Winston was unstoppable, passing for a touchdown and rushing for an additional four scores leading Hueytown to a win. Gunner Kiel, Patton Robinette and Patrick Towles each led their squads to victories as well.
