One of the fastest rising quarterbacks on the west coast is Johnny DuRocher from Spanaway (Wash.) Bethel. DuRocher has offers from Stanford, Washington, Oregon, Oregon State, Arizona and the home state Washington Huskies.
More offers seem to be in DuRocher’s future. Notre Dame is expected to be on campus May 23rd and the Irish may bring fourth an offer. Cal and ASU are also poised to make an offer very soon.
Now that is what we call red-hot.
DuRocher looks the part of a pro-style drop-back field general standing 6-foot-4 and weighs 205 pounds while he runs the 40-yard dash in 4.8 seconds. “Johnny has a lean frame and could get ever heavier without losing any quickness,” Bethel head coach Eric Kurle said.
DuRocher has a good arm and has been the varsity starter since his sophomore year. All he did as a sophomore was lead his team to the state championship game. He backed that performance by leading Bethel high to the state semi-final game as a junior. DuRocher has a record of 23 wins against 4 losses as a starter.
“Johnny is a real competitor and doesn’t care about stats,” Kurle said. “All he cares about are getting the W’s.”
A consistent performer, DuRocher threw for 2,100 yards, 20 touchdowns and five picks as a sophomore. As a junior he threw for 2,100 more yards, 23 touchdowns and four interceptions
DuRocher has the intangibles you love to see in a quarterback prospect. He’s very mature and has great leadership skills. “Johnny’s work ethic is outstanding and he sets the standard for the whole team to follow,” Kurle said.
DuRocher has hunger to win it all since leading his team so close to championship the last two years. He knows this his last shot to win it all on the high school level.
Look for a recruiting battle for this talented QB to be as competitive as DuRocher’s spirit.
