BELOIT OH- For the West Branch Warriors, the departure of star quarterback Dru DeShields left a gaping hole in the roster, and the big question on everyone’s mind was: who would step up to fill those shoes? The answer came in the form of a determined young senior, Beau Alazaus. In his first year as a quarterback, Beau seized the opportunity to lead his team with an emphatic “yes.”

Throughout his football journey, Beau always held the belief that he had what it took to become QB1. It’s a dream that starts in the backyard, throwing the football to oneself, and for Beau, that dream became a reality when he saw the chance to take the reins of the West Branch offense. Like all first-year quarterbacks, nerves were part of the equation, but Alazaus didn’t let them dictate his performance.

As the leader of the Warriors, Beau Alazaus has shown immense growth and composure on the field. Week after week, his stats tell the tale of a talented and hardworking quarterback: 172 completions on 252 attempts, 2,206 passing yards, 25 touchdowns, and just 4 interceptions. He maintains an impressive average of 276 passing yards per game and boasts a stellar completion rate of 68%. His quarterback rating stands at 121.9, reflecting his efficiency and ability to make smart decisions under pressure. And let’s not forget, he’s not just a passer; he’s a dual-threat quarterback with four rushing touchdowns to his name.

Beau Alazaus has not only stepped into the role of the starting quarterback for West Branch, but he has embraced the challenges and opportunities that come with it. His leadership, talent, and dedication to the game have not only met the expectations but have set a new standard. The future is bright for this young QB, and the West Branch Warriors couldn’t be in better hands.
