The Gallia Academy Blue Devils are in the driver’s seat of the SEOAL, and a big part of that comes thanks to quarterback Wade Jarrell.

The signal caller has helped the Blue Devils offense explode for an average of 35 points per game, much higher than the defense-focused teams of years past.

Jarrell came on to the scene in the very first week of the season, where he and the Blue Devils defeated the Athens Bulldogs on the road, 52-34. While his stats of 10-for-16 throwing for 185 yards weren’t eye-popping, his ability to make smart plays and control the offense were noted.

Jarrell now has 1,008 passing yards to go with 11 touchdowns and just two interceptions. He also does damage on the ground, as he has rushed for 584 yards and eight scores. His offensive abilities combined with other weapons such as Ty Warnimont and Cody Russell has made the Blue Devils a force in the SEOAL.

The only thing between Gallia Academy and a perfect 5-0 record in league play is a Week 10 showdown with Jackson. Look for Jarrell to control the offense and complete the Blue Devils’ goal of a league title.
