When you look at the season so far you have to consider Strongsville QB Kellen Pagel one of the candidates for Mr. Football Ohio after his red hot start this year along with his Mustangs.
6'3" 180 pounds together with poise, confidence and a really nice arm Kellen, the son of former Browns, Colts and Rams quarterback Mike Pagel has led the 'Stangs to a 4-1 start and he's comprised some impressive stats:
56 of 91 (62%) for 1,072 yards
8 TD's 2 int's
2 rushing TD's
His NCAA QB rating is 185.11, NFL rating would be 122.6 and in the AFL 115.3. Not bad at all for the first half of the 2008 season. He's even donned his father's number 10 (his own decision according to dad) and he's a fine young man on and off the field as well.
The team is tearing it up, despite a heart-breaking loss to St. Eds in the opener, and they are also atop the D1 Football DGD rankings. The senior quarterback from Strongsville needs to be highly considered among the kids in the running for this award.
