Junior quarterback Parker McLeod of Marietta (Ga.) Walton doesn't get to throw the ball as much as some signal callers, but you won't hear him moan about it.
The reason?
His team hasn't lost.

"It's hard to complain when you're 8-0," McLeod said.
Playing for a run-oriented team that is getting big numbers from 2013 tailback Tyren Jones, McLeod is making the most of his chances.
Thus far, the 6-feet-3, 185-pounder has passed for approximately 800 yards with nine touchdowns and two interceptions. He's completing 65 percent of his attempts in his first year as the starter.
"I think I'm playing pretty good when the team needs me," McLeod said. "I think my strengths are accuracy, pocket presence and arm strength."
To date, McLeod has one offer. It came from Louisville during the summer after he attended camp there. According to McLeod, the Cardinals continue to send him lots of mail.
Additionally, McLeod said he also is hearing from Alabama, Duke, North Carolina, Tennessee, Vanderbilt and Virginia. From that group, Duke and Vanderbilt are giving him the most attention.
"They both want to see me throw in the spring," McLeod said. "Or at summer camp. I plan on doing that. They've shown me a lot of interest."
This fall, McLeod has attended games at Duke, Georgia, Louisville, Tennessee and Vanderbilt.
"I liked all [the visits] a lot," McLeod said.
