Sometimes, the phrase “dual-threat quarterback” gets translated as “he can't pass,” but it's a mistake to make that assumption about Edwards.
“He's got great speed, and people talk about how quick he is,” Mustang coach Ty Prestidge said. “But he throws the ball real well. So he's kind of a mix between Edmonds and Webster. Frankie is a little of both of them.”
A year ago, Mustang had talent, but leadership was an issue, and the frustration seemed to snowball. Now that last year's juniors are seniors, and attitudes are fixed on rebuilding a winning program.
“We're motivated after coming off that pretty bad season last year,” Edwards said. “We don't want that to happen again in our program. We've been holding each other accountable, and we all have pretty good attitudes this year.”
