High school football: Mustang quarterback Frankie Edwards will operate a diverse offense

The junior will benefit from limited experience a year ago, when the Broncos struggled to a surprising 3-7 record.

“We're gonna do a lot more diverse stuff — stuff that fits my abilities,” Edwards said. “It's gonna be a fun style of offense.”

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.”
