Serving as quarterback in Trinity Lutheran High School’s inaugural season of football in 2012, Jacob Stout said he learned a lot.
For his senior season this fall though, he switched to receiver. Not being the quarterback again didn’t bother him because the Cougars have a pass-oriented offense, and he still gets in on a lot of plays.
“Quarterback is fun, but receiver is a lot easier mentally,” Stout said. “Going from quarterback to receiver, you get a different perspective of the game. Quarterback, you see the whole field and what’s going on. Receiver, you just run your route, you block. You don’t have to know as much that’s going on.”
