Nothing seems more improbable than an eighth grader losing part of his index finger but eventually developing into the quarterback of a three-time 3A state champion as a junior.
By DT Yates
Sam Vaulton did just that. It was also the Alcoa high school Tornadoes fifth straight and 18th overall championship in school history which are the most in Tennessee state history.
With that much success there’s a lot of expectation and pressure that comes with it at Alcoa. Vaulton’s excelled in the heat and helped continue a legacy while throwing for 1,387 yards with
20 TDs over his junior year.
He is a pro style quarterback that can still hurt you with his legs as shown by the last 45 seconds of his Hudl video below. His height is excellent at 6-3 and what coaches are often looking for these days. After receiving his first college offer from Tulane in December, he got his first SEC offer from Ole Miss on a visit this weekend.
His offer list should continue to grow as we move closer to the 2021 signing season. With possible camps at Auburn, Vanderbilt, Louisville, Tennessee and interest from North Carolina and his 6-foot-3 inch frame, it’s expected. Being a three or four-time state champion signal caller won’t hurt either.
Will we someday see Sam Vaulton quarterbacking Lane Kiffin‘s Ole Miss teams? Stay tuned to 14Powers.com for more.
