Tyler Beverett Ready To Spearhead Sabercat Attack

Tyler Beverett doesn’t need any reminders. The sophomore quarterback sees it each and every time he steps into the football facilities or on the field at Saguaro High School.

Arizona Football State Champions: 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017.

It’s pretty difficult to miss the unparalleled success or the sky-high expectations for one the west coast’s most successful programs.

After watching and learning behind Max Massingale, the incumbent Beverett is ready for the big stage this fall.

“Honestly, I don’t feel a lot of pressure,” Beverett said to Sports360AZ.com. “We just want to win a state championship. That’s really the end goal.”

Beverett is following three Division I quarterbacks in Luke Rubenzer, Kare’ Lyles and Massingale but says he’s ready for the task in front of him.

His head coach seems to agree.

“He’s a really smart kid,” Jason Mohns explained to Sports360AZ.com. “He’s über talented. He throws and runs the ball well. When he plays with confidence…he’s pretty special.”

With more live varsity game action will come more confidence. Beverett saw limited time in 2017 but received valuable practice experience working against one of the best defenses in the state on Saguaro’s scout team each week.

Now he’s putting in the work this off-season to help himself, both physically and mentally, heading into the fall as the starter.

“I’ve been going to quarterback training three times a week, speed training four times a week”  he said. “Weightlifting here at school. I’m really doing a lot to get myself ready.”

Despite lacking the experience, Beverett’s “measurables” (nearly 6-foot-3, 200 pounds) far exceed the talented Saguaro signal-callers before him…and he still has two years of eligibility remaining.

“He’s got a really high ceiling,” Mohns said. “He knows this offense inside and out. He sees things and processes things really fast.”

Hopefully fast enough to make it six-straight for the Sabercats. I wouldn’t bet against Beverett and this Saguaro offense.    

Not many people are. Honestly, why would they?

They call it #SagU for a reason.
