Chad Warner’s journey to becoming an elite quarterback prospect is marked by a consistent display of talent, dedication, and leadership when he is under center. His impressive performance at the DR7 Road To The Crown in Dallas served as a culmination of years of hard work and development. Throughout the tournament, Warner showcased his exceptional skill set, showing his ability to make every throw with precision and confidence. Whether it was threading the needle between defenders or launching deep bombs with accuracy, Warner demonstrated a level of mastery that set him apart from his peers.

What truly sets Warner apart, however, is not just his physical abilities, but also his mental acuity and understanding of the game. His field vision is superb, allowing him to anticipate plays before they unfold and make split-second decisions with poise and confidence. Warner’s ability to read defenses and find soft spots in coverage are key traits that surface in his game.

In addition to his prowess as a passer, Warner’s fundamentals are second to none. His footwork in the pocket is clean and deliberate, enabling him to maneuver seamlessly and buy time to make plays downfield. Moreover, his posture and mechanics are textbook-perfect, standing tall and delivering the football with optimal velocity and accuracy.

Warner’s success on the gridiron is not limited to his performance at the DR7 tournament. As the starting quarterback for Cibolo Steele, he has consistently delivered against some of the toughest competition in Texas high school football. Leading his team to the 6A Division II semifinals in 2023, Warner’s leadership and playmaking ability were on full display as he amassed impressive statistics and earned numerous accolades, including Central Texas Offensive Player of the Year and 27-6A Offensive MVP.

Beyond his on-field achievements, Warner’s character and work ethic have also been instrumental in his success. I have been privileged to scout Warner at in season games, numerous camps and combines going back to his middle school days.  Each time I see him there has been steady improvement, showing his unwavering dedication to his craft and his relentless pursuit of excellence. Warner’s commitment to continuous improvement and his ability to perform under pressure make him a standout prospect with the potential to thrive at the collegiate level.

Warner has plenty of interest from college programs, but only one offer from Grambling State. For college programs seeking a dynamic and talented quarterback, Chad Warner is the complete package. His performance at the DR7 tournament in Dallas served as a resounding endorsement of his abilities, leaving no doubt that he has what it takes to succeed at the next level. Warner’s future is undoubtedly bright and he will no doubt see his stock rise as heads into his senior season.
