A funny thing happened on the way to be naming all-state quarterback for the state of Utah. The athlete that was named to the all-state team as a signal-caller started the season as a running back. This running back turned quarterback is Bowen “Bo” McNally (6-0, 185, 4.5) from Salt Lake City (Utah) Highland.
Though he started the season as a running back and finished the season as an all-state quarterback, he could end up as a free safety on the next level.
“Bo started the season as a running back,” offensive coordinator Brody Benson said. “But our quarterback went down with an injury and since Bo was our best athlete we played him at quarterback.”
“Bo is definitely our MVP,” Benson said. “When he plays good, we play good.”
“Bo has tremendous football speed,” Benson said. “When running the option, he is very shifty, he can make people miss.”
McNally went to Stanford’s a year ago as his Dad is an alum. He may go to the Nike Camp held at Stanford this coming May.
Stanford is very much in the hunt for McNally. The Notre Dame Fighting Irish have sent a handwritten letter to McNally.
ASU, Colorado, Nebraska, Utah, Princeton and Columbia are all showing interest in the talented athlete from Salt Lake City.
