Jack Lowary or Captain Jack as we all call him around here. Captain Jack has always impressed me with his larger than life persona. The highly charismatic quarterback will have a major impact on the Mater Dei’s football program this year. Jack reminds me of a cross between Matt Leinart and Carson Palmer. Jack may be one of the Nation’s best kept secrets…but trust me he won’t be for long! As his quarterback coach, I can’t wait for him to show everyone what I have seen for years!
Back in May at our San Diego Quarterback Retreat, Greg Biggins-National Recruiting Analyst for FOX Sports/Scout.com was able to sit down and meet with Southern California’s powerhouse Mater Dei Highschool’s upcoming QB 1 Jack Lowary. See below for full article breakdown:
Very few programs anywhere in the country have the track record of
producing next level quarterbacks like Santa Ana (Calif.) Mater Dei.
Jack Lowary will be the guy for the Monarchs next season and he has
all the physical tools to play at the next level as well.
Jack Lowary was one of several talented quarterbacks who attended the
Steve Clarkson QB Retreat in San Diego over the weekend. Physically,
Lowary has everything you’re looking for in a college quarterback and
just needs game experience.
He’s a big, strong 6-4, 230 pound kid with a huge arm and the ability
to make all the throws. He’s a pocket passer but has some mobility and
can throw on the run with plenty of velocity and accuracy.
“I’ve been working out with Steve since the 5th grade and it’s always
fun to come out and get together like this,” Lowary said over the
weekend. It’s a time to catch up with some of the guys and talk to
Wilton (Speight) and Max (Wittek) and learn from them.
“The Retreat is more about family and having fun. We put in a lot hard
work on Sunday’s training with Steve but this is more about having a
good time with the other guys. Steve has been great for me though and
I’ve learned a ton.
“He has really helped me with my foundation and not using my arm so
much. Now we’re just fine tuning some things, using my base and lower
half more so it’s not just all arm.”
As a junior, Lowary played a backup role to Chase Forrest who signed
with California. He’ll be the guy as a senior and said he can’t wait.
Some Jack Lowary HIghlights:
Since the retreat in May Jack had been working hard and preparing the best he can. We were able to catch up with him and get some final words on his upcoming senior season.
"What I’m looking most forward to is the opportunity to finally play and be at the helm of the offense. It’s such a honor to be the starting quarterback at a great high school like Mater Dei. Mater Dei’s quarterback legacy is 2nd to none. I’m very excited to be able to show everyone what I can do and I have great teammates and a coaching staff to support me." -Jack Lowary
GOOD LUCK CAPT!
