As we head into the 2023 Football season, we take a look at the top 2023 recruits in this new weekly segment. We start by looking at the Top Recruits for each position. First up the QBs.
Jackson Arnold- Denton Guyer: The Oklahoma commit comes into his senior year looking to put the finishing pieces on his High School Football career after coming up short against Westlake last season. He's already showing his skill leading into the season, getting an invite to Elite 11 and will get to showcase his skills this summer there.

Austin Novosad- Dripping Springs: The hidden gem of the hill country is hidden no longer. The Baylor commit looks to bounce back after a disappointing exit in the UIL playoffs last season. He will also be attending Elite 11 and let me tell you this invite and getting moved to 6A where he will face both Lake Travis and Westlake will give him the chance to showcase what some of us already know; this kid can ball.

Bo Edmundson- Lake Travis: The Lake Travis quarterback will look to build off his 3,239 yard 38 TD performance from last season. Lake Travis had a strong showing last season reaching the State Semifinals before losing to eventual champion North Shore. The Michigan State commit hopes to get his team back to the state championship game for the first time since the 17/18 season.

Jake Strong- Northwestern: The Tech commit will get the chance to show his skills this upcoming season with Texas power houses Aledo and Denton Ryan joining their district after the most recent realignment. Northwest will rely on his skills for sure this season to via for a playoff spot in a seriousouly competetive district.
It takes selfless individuals to take part in building something bigger than themselves‼️Know your why! #WreckEM ❤️🖤👆🏼 pic.twitter.com/4uWV51V1tV— Jake SŦrong (@JStrongQB4) March 13, 2022
Brennan Storer- Highland Park: The 5A staple Highland Park moves up to 6A this season and will be a great test for Storer who comes into his senior season looking to show that their move to 6A won't slow him or Highland Park down. And as the only QB of the 5 to not be committed as of yet, I feel that now that he has one year of starting under his belt he will not only build on his first season of play but for recruiting to quickly pick up.

Rockwall football now has a 3-0 start this season after taking down the usual sturdy Austin Lake Travis Cavaliers- a feat many outside of the city of Rockwall doubted could be accomplished. On Friday, the Yellowjackets defeated Lake Travis by a score of 59-35; a four-score deficit. VYPE DFW dives into all of the ways that Jacket Fight Never Died on Friday night.
It's not often that Lake Travis loses. It's even rarer for Lake Travis to lose by over a couple of scores. In fact, the last time the Cavs lost by four scores or more was during the 2018-19 football season when they fell 44-14 to Austin Westlake. Rockwall saw Friday night's game as an opportunity to prove the nay-sayers wrong.
Senior quarterback and Mississippi State commit Braedyn Locke had an absolutely phenomenal outing as he three for 506 yards and five touchdowns while completing 69% of his passes (30 of 43). On the receiving end of Locke's touchdown passes were junior wide receiver Noble Johnson (four touchdowns on 12 receptions and 249 yards), senior tight end Brennan Ray (one touchdown with nine catches for 133 yards). On the rushing front, junior running back Zach Hernandez nabbed a touchdown of his own on 19 carries and 135 yards while junior outside linebacker Lake Bennett rushed for one touchdown.
Taking down Lake Travis is an incredible accomplishment for Rockwall as they get ready to face off against Highland Park in week 4. With such a great start to the season, Rockwall is working their way to having the strongest start in the Dallas-Fort Worth area- if not working their way to being the strongest team in the metroplex full stop.
