Dasher
Height: 5-10
Weight: 202
Class: Junior
2008: 17-44, 156 yards, 2 TD, 3 INT - 49 rushes for 192 yards
Spring practice: Earned most improved award for quarterbacks; Won the Iron Man title for the skill position players.

Franklin: "Dwight runs around very well and is a good thrower. I think he is a pocket passer. He is a guy who can sit back in the pocket and find throwing lanes. He is that first. He is a runner second."

BRENT BURNETTE

Burnette

Franklin: "Brent is a very capable quarterback who knows how to win. That is the thing I like about him most. He was extremely well coached in high school and his fundamentals are almost impeccable."
