He had a broken hand, then collarbone.

Yeah, kinda hard to expect a QB to play with a broken throwing hand, and I don't know of any position players being allowed to play in high school with a broken collarbone....or even at the college level, for that matter...

I'm not exactly sure how a QB grips a ball with a broken hand. Maybe the poster from Aiken saying he should have played can explain that to us with his years of playing the position.

Yes sir, Lombardi would be proud of you. If they got a pulse, put 'em out there, prop 'em up', hike 'em the ball, stick a cattle prod to their rear and yell 'Throw the bloody ball; that's just growin' pains you're feelin'. LOL.

If I was a DB then I would love for him to be playing QB with a broken hand/finger.

Finally got to see him play last night. Baldwin's a hoss. Greenwood sent a lot of pressure at him, so some of his early throws were off. He settled in after that and had a solid game. Threw a pair of 50+ yard bombs that his receivers just couldn't catch up to. Showed a ton of athleticism and toughness when running the football.

This seems reasonable. He's just trying to see if he gets any offers during or after his season.

The Greenwood radio guys in the press box raved about him (and Rasool Clemons). Hopefully he can make it through the season injury-free (he took a lot of hits Friday night without issue) and we'll see how his recruitment goes. It'll be great for the area to have a big-time prospect.

Quote:
QB Bo Baldwin of South Aiken was a recruiting mystery in his high school career. A physically imposing quarterback (6-6 231) with a big arm, Baldwin was set back by injuries and never became the hot recruiting target many expected. USC offered him a grayshirt opportunity last summer but Baldwin did not accept that right away. And with the Gamecocks taking a quarterback for the 2014 class well after making the grayshirt offer to Baldwin, it opens up speculation as to just how much the Gamecocks want Baldwin, and vice versa. Now, Clemson has entered the picture a little bit. Baldwin’s brother will be at senior at Clemson in 2014 and a source said Clemson has offered him a preferred walk-on spot, something Baldwin is considering if he decides he wants to continue his football career. This season Baldwin passed for 1285 yards and 11 touchdowns.

He gambled that other teams would offer him this fall....didn't happen. We offered a grayshirt, he waited, SOS pulled the trigger on another QB. Now Bo is on the outside looking in. I feel really badly for him. I think he has a bunch of talent.
