PC Quarterbacks Produce for PC Hoops


SportsZone's Ted Silary, an avowed fan of multipart athletes (vs. specialization), dives into his statistics to take a close look at a quarterbacks and their hoops involvement.

In 12 school years in this century, the primary QB has also been a member of the basketball team. This school year's double-duty guy is senior Will Samuel. His passing yardage total ranks sixth on the list below and his hoops point total already ranks third. THE Matt Ryan owns the first and second highest numbers with 287 and 284. (Matt is shown below with his PC teammates; Rob Kurz and Sean Singletary went on to play for the NBA.)

We'll see where this goes. John Ryan is Matt's brother. John Loughery is their cousin. Another cousin, Pat McCain, was the primary QB in 2012, but was not yet on the basketball varsity in the 2012-13 season.

Will is pictured here pulling down a rebound at the 2017 Boardwalk Basketball Tournament in Wildwood.
