Stephenville High School quarterback Kade Renfro joined a very exclusive club over the weekend after being named the Elite 11 MVP quarterback for the Houston Region over the weekend.
So just how elite is the Elite 11?
Former SHS and Auburn quarterback Jarrett Stidham made the roster in 2014 and national champion Clemson’s quarterback Trevor Lawrence was on the roster last year.
The Elite 11 Regionals are designed to help elite high school players with college potential advance their football and training knowledge in order to maximize their ability. Participants are taught position-specific and athletic performance drills designed by some of the top NFL football players and sports performance specialists in America.
The players will have an opportunity to work with The Elite 11 coaching staff that have helped mold stars such as Deshaun Watson, Jared Goff and many, many more. In addition, top performers will have a chance to qualify for a spot at The Opening Finals, four days of dynamic competition for the country’s most elite high school football prospects in July.
Eleven of the past 12 quarterbacks to have won the Heisman Trophy attended the Elite 11 Finals or an Elite 11 Regional. Fifteen of the top 20 NFL passers in 2017 attended the Elite 11 Finals or an Elite 11 Regional.
