We are in the thrust of augmenting our database. That is why you are seeing more “Middle School Spotlights” being published.
We have a guy who figures to really shine for the defending champions at the 5A classification. This player may be about to do the seemingly impossible.
We believe he sees the field early over the course of his upcoming freshman season. We don’t know if it will be at QB, at least not next year (though it could), but his playing some at FS seems pretty assured.
His name is Easton Jointer. Physically, he’s practically a “grown man” right now.
Jointer is 6-2 and weighs pretty close to 200-pounds. He’s a dual-threat QB who doubles at FS and is a nationally ranked dual-threat QB according to QB Hit List. Jointer was also selected to the prestigious TN Select 7v7 squad so count them as impressed with this prospect as are many others.
QB Hit List has been effusive in its praise of this young dual-threat. They have called him, “A super athlete who excels in two sports, football and basketball.” They have noted his penchant for “…taking over a game.”
They have also memorialized his being “A tough running QB who punishes would be tacklers as he rolls over them.” In their words, Jointer is “A raw talent who has a very high ceiling.”
The database we accessed went on to talk of his high velocity on throws over the middle and his solid vertical passing game coupled with a classic over the top delivery with a fully extended arm motion. In other words, with his fame even should he not grow any taller, knocking down or deflecting any of these well-timed deliveries will be easier said than done.
We love this kid’s game. He will be a sure-fire, high school superstar who may find the field at QB even as a freshman with the Spartans’ former signal caller, Caden Veltkamp, graduating this Spring and moving on to play in college at WKU just down the road.
This kid has been excellently trained, is participating in all the right offseason programs, and has the intangibles to be among the commonwealth’s very best at the QB position in the ’26 class. With his skill set, we won’t have to wait very long to discover just how really good he is either.
