Most Impressive Quarterback on the Florida Panhandle in 2023: Vote Now

We’ve selected 12 candidates for you to choose from

It’s that time where we early on in the season have seen players get off to a hit start. We wonder who you feel like has looked the best nearly halfway through the season?

We start first at the quarterback position where these guys have been relied upon probably more so than ever before. Teams running spread offenses ask a lot of their signal callers to be the guy.

On the Florida Panhandle, we’ve put together a list of 12 candidates for you to choose from. Vote for who you think has been the most impressive in your eyes so far in 2023. 


Editor’s Note: Our corresponding poll is intended to be fun, and we do not set limits on how many times a fan can vote during the competition. This poll is specifically for fans to vote on the players that have been nominated and in no way discredits any other player that may not be mentioned in our poll.

Voting will conclude on September 30th at 11:59 p.m. Here are the nominees.

Anthony Hall, Escambia: Hall has been one of the top leaders in passing yardage in the state with 702 yards. The Gators’ quarterback has four touchdowns to just one pick. 

Sammy Freitas, Mosley: The Dolphins’ starting quarterback has played solid under center and stayed away from turning over the football. Freitas has thrown for 492 yards and nine touchdown passes. 

Carson Hawk, South Walton: Hawk has played very well in his senior season as the quarterback has completed 30-of-56 passes for 390 yards and five touchdowns to no interceptions. 

Peyton Gay, Bozeman: A player that hasn’t received as much praise as he should for his play is Gay. The quarterback has completed 34-of-63 passes for 633 yards and eight touchdowns to zero picks. 

Wells Bettenhausen, Walton: Bettenhausen transferred to Walton from South Walton and it’s worked out nicely. The signal caller has completed 47-of-72 passes for 789 yards and seven touchdowns to just one interception. 

Nick Simmons, Pace: There might not be a quarterback as versatile at the position than Simmons. Simmons has thrown for 258 yards, four touchdowns and also rushed for 396 and two scores. 

Jesse Winslette, Choctawhatchee: The Indians’ senior signal caller has played strong for the team under center, throwing for 416 yards and three touchdowns. 

Taite Davis, Tate: Got to like how Tate has played this season behind the play of Davis, who has completed 28-of-39 passes for 509 yards and six touchdowns to just one interception. 

John Nicholas, West Florida: One of the most efficient signal callers in the Panhandle has been Nicholas, who has thrown for 562 yards and seven touchdowns to just one interception. 

Nathaniel Nocher, Crestview: The Bulldogs starting quarterback has completed 37-of-69 passes for 532 yards and seven touchdowns. 

Battle Alberson, Gulf Breeze: Alberson has been the focal point of the Dolphins’ offense as the quarterback has thrown for 522 yards and four touchdowns. 

Hunter Pfiester, Navarre: The Raiders quarterback has been doing it with his arm and legs, throwing for 288 yards, four touchdowns and 107 on the ground.
