Hosted by the Tampa area-based Phillips QB Academy and Football Hotbed, signal callers from the classes of 2019, 2020 and 2021 participated in the two-day Future 4 National Middle School QB Invitational Showcase.

More than 60 quarterbacks from across the country spent the first weekend of May in Fort Lauderdale for the first installment of the Future 4 National Middle School QB Invitational Showcase.

Hosted by the Tampa area-based Phillips QB Academy and Football Hotbed, signal callers from the classes of 2019, 2020 and 2021 participated in the two-day event at Cardinal Gibbons High School.

Among the 32 QBs from the class of '19 invited to South Florida, three hailed from Georgia: Kyle Terry, Gavin Gray and Gaven Williams.

Below we take a look at how the Peach State prospects performed in the invitational.

Terry (Kennesaw, Ga.) showcased his speed and explosiveness as he nabbed first place in the 40-yard dash, running a 4.89. He also took first in the broad jump with a 9'11. Terry ranked second in the 5-10-5 shuttle run with a time of 4.37, and closed out the day by throwing 31.5 feet in the power toss.

Williams (Frederica Academy, Ga.) ranked 6th in the 40-yard dash, running a 5.03. He tied for sixth in the broad jump (8’4), and ran a 4.65 time on the 5-10-5 shuttle. Williams proved to be the second most accurate thrower of all invitees and his power toss went 31.6 feet, the best result of the three Georgia prospects.

Gray (Calhoun, Ga.) recorded a 5.45 on the 40-yard dash and scored a 7’7 on the broad jump. He finished middle of the pack in the 5-10-5 run with a 4.71 result. Gray’s power toss was 25.9 feet.
