Pinnacle quarterback Spencer Rattler has been dubbed the top quarterback in the 2019 class for quite a while, and he solidified that after an Elite 11 MVP performance at The Opening.
#2 on his jersey, but #1 on the field.

Rattler, the only Arizona player in this year’s competition, led Team Overdrive to the 7-on-7 championship.
“Rattler came out on fire in the Championship game and led his team to the title, taking home Elite 11 MVP honors,” 247Sports’ Greg Biggins wrote. “For a player with his slight frame, he gets a ton of heat on the ball, throws the deep ball with accuracy and showed good decision-making skill. He didn’t force anything, checked down when there was nothing down the field and plays with great passion and energy.”
