Because he is a winner, Garrett Green (6-2, 190, 4.5) from Sherman Oaks (Calif.) Notre Dame will be one of the most sought after quarterbacks on the west coast.
As a two year starter Green has led Notre Dame to a 26-1 record and two Southern Section Division III championships.
The only loss Notre Dame suffered while Green as been at the helm was when the Knights were beat by a late field goal in the waning seconds of the game.

Notre Dame, Florida State, Southern California and UCLA are sending him the most mail at this early stage, but he is getting interest from just about every school in the nation.
As a junior, Green hit on 112 passes on 168 attempts for 1,364 yards and seven touchdowns while hitting on 59.6% of his passes.
Green can also make things happen running the football. He scampered for 809 yards on 94 carries and nine rushing touchdowns while averaging 8.6 yards per carry. He is a two-time All-CIF and all-league selection.
"Garrett is a very gifted athlete and very competitive," Notre Dame Coach Kevin Rooney said. "He has a strong arm and is a great runner."
Rooney added that Green makes great decisions.
"You teach him something once and he understands it and applies what he has learned," he said.
Not only is Green a great quarterback, but he's a tremendous athlete. He also participates in track and went to the CIF meet as a hurdler. Green was a member of Notre Dame's 4x100 team that was fifth-best in the state.
"Like all the great ones, Garrett has a great work ethic," Rooney said. "He works hard at everything he does."
Green also is strong as far as quarterbacks go. The last time he was tested he benched 230 pounds and a very impressive 250 pound clean.
