Clayton Isbell in charge for No. 4 St. Charles East (IL)

When Clayton Isbell needed advice last season about playing quarterback, he turned to the player who would hand him the proverbial baton.

“Zach Mitchell was a great quarterback for us last year, All-State, and he ran the offense perfectly,” Isbell said. “He helped me all year learning the position.

“At the end of the year I came up and asked him, ‘Can you teach me to throw a ball like you?’ He had such a great, tight spiral.”

Energetic and enthusiastic, Isbell has become the focal point for the Saints’ bid to follow up on last year’s Class 8A quarterfinal finish and an 11-1 record.

A 6-foot-3, 205-pound senior, Isbell has the athleticism to run St. Charles East’s triple-option offense. He played the position successfully for the sophomore team two years ago, and he has improved at throwing that spiral.

“During the offseason I worked a little with Zach,” Isbell said. “He taught me about the speed of the game, how it was real fast as a quarterback.

“I emphasized reads since last year, and Zach worked with me during practice at that, with different things when I had questions. Now I feel good about what I need to know to lead my team to victories.”

Isbell played defensive back last year for a dominant Saints defense that allowed 10 points a game.

“I grew up playing quarterback my whole life,” Isbell said. “Last year was the only year I didn’t. The triple-option offense is a nice offense for me. It lets me show my skills. I like running the ball.”
