Edison’s Gonzalez Ready to Make Some Noise

Another year down for Edison’s successful quarterback Brandon Gonzalez however this year was far more trying than other years as Covid-19 really put the clamps on the Junior quarterback. Gonzalez finished the shortened year for Edison with 430 yards passing, 3 touchdowns, on 52 attempts and a 58% completion rate. Gonzalez also had 140 yards rushing, a touchdown, and averaged 4 yards a carry. In all Edison played just three games. The season was already shortened in half with a delayed start by SAISD but was shortened even further by an outbreak of Covid19 among some Edison football players.

Gonzalez showed up to Alamo Stadium in October to protest the delayed start by SAISD as many other area teams were allowed to start playing already. Gonzalez talked with several media entities about his desire to play and how he felt it was an unfair deal to his team and others. Eventually SAISD allowed a district only schedule to take place.

As of now Gonzalez is playing a lot of Baseball and keeping his arm in rhythm. But he has not only been playing baseball he’s also been competing with his 7v7 team and getting quarterback training sessions in with quarterback coach Yale Vanoy. So, Brandon is focused on what he needs to do for a successful upcoming season.

Gonzalez says the bright spot of the short season was a big win over playoff qualifier and big time rival the Jefferson Mustangs. The rivalry game is known as the “Tommy Bowl” and it was Edison’s first victory over the Mustangs since the 2016-17 season. Gonzalez says a win like this proves he and Edison are on the right track and headed in the right direction.

As of this time Gonzalez has little in the way of offers because of three games and limited film for recruiters to study. However, Gonzalez has been in contact with several colleges and hopes to hear the call soon. Gonzalez is a feisty leader who works hard and likes to win. You cannot ask for more than that in your in your starting quarterback. I think Brandon Gonzalez will have a great season as all his hard work continues to make him into a better quarterback. I’d like to see a first-round playoff matchup between Edison and the Southside Cardinals a matchup that would put Gonzalez against fellow 7v7 teammate Richard Torres. Gonzalez has got to get them to the playoffs first and I think he will.
