All-State QB Randy Schroeder Named NUC All American; Set To Compete In North Vs. South Game At Myrtle Beach

2012-NUC-All-American-QuarterbackCornelius, NC, December 3, 2012 – Senior Quarterback Randy Schroeder of Southlake Christian Academy has been named an NUC All American and will play for the North team at the NUC All American Game in Myrtle Beach December 22. Schroeder is the first Lake Norman area player selected for the event, which showcases college-bound football talent.

This season, Schroeder was named All-Conference and All-State after leading the Eagles to an 11-win season and a berth in the championship game of the North Carolina Independent Schools Athletic Association Division III state playoffs.

Schroeder's senior season earned him a No. 24 ranking among the hundreds of quarterbacks tracked during the season by MaxPreps.com, a respected source for high school football statistics. The 6-foot 2-inch, 195-pound signal caller led a balanced Southlake offense that set multiple single-season team records.

This season, he completed nearly 67 percent of his passes -- 175 of 262 thrown – and amassed 3,587 yards, with 32 touchdowns and only 9 interceptions. He averaged nearly 300 passing yards per game, finishing the year with a Quarterback Rating of 135. The team set records for most points in a season (490) and most points per game (37.7). Schroeder excels in the classroom, too, maintaining a 3.5 grade point average.

In Myrtle Beach, Schroeder will participate in a week of practices and skills evaluations before taking on the North squad at Doug Shaw Stadium. By assembling an elite roster of high school athletes, NUC All American Games have attracted growing interest among college recruiters.

Two new major college stars, both quarterbacks, are former All American Game competitors. Now known as "Johnny Football," Johnny Manziel, who this fall as a freshman led Texas A&M's upset of then No. 1 Alabama – launching himself into Heisman Trophy consideration -- played in the NUC All American Game.

And Marcus Mariota, who quarterbacked the Oregon Ducks to a season-long Top 10 ranking this year, competed in the 2011 NUC All American Game after finishing his prep career at St. Louis School, a small all-boys Catholic school in Hawaii.

In recent years, Schroeder has honed his skills at football camps around the country. These include the Manning Passing Academy, Football University and training programs at Michigan State, NC State, Appalachian State and Furman.

Schroeder's unofficial visits have included stops at Appalachian State, Coastal Carolina, Campbell University and Newberry College.
