In rare moments, Mario Easterly appears close to being a magician on the football field.
His speed, quickness and vision allow him to seemingly, “disappear” in the face of defenders. A Quarterback, Easterly also displays tremendous arm talent as well. He is able to thread the needle when throwing in traffic or show off his touch when tossing the deep ball.
Last Saturday, Easterly’s full array of skills were on display. Entrenched in a back and forth battle, he consistently made whatever play was necessary to push his team towards victory. He completed timely passes through the air and ripped off big runs with his legs. Perhaps what was most impressive though were his contributions on the defensive side of the ball, where he made countless open field tackles, including a couple that may have saved the game.
Mario Easterly is special and if he ever decides to stop playing football, he’ll likely be the best darn magician in town.
