Texas quarterbacks thrive in spread offense

It seemed almost unimaginable that Texas could produce a better produce crop of quarterbacks than the Class of 2006. Until this year.
Fourteen of the 16 quarterbacks listed on the Star-Telegram’s State 100 list signed Wednesday with schools in BCS conferences.

The group is led by Parade All-Americans Garrett Gilbert from Austin Lake Travis (Texas) and Russell Shepard of Houston Cypress Ridge (LSU). Locally, Arlington Bowie’s Christian Matthews (Kansas) threw for 1,643 yards; Fort Worth All Saints’ Doak Raulston (Louisiana Tech) passed for 3,026 yards; and Euless Trinity’s Denarius McGhee (Montana State) had a school-record 28 wins as a two-year starter.
