Argyle’s Sadler continues to grow his role

Ian Sadler completed three of his five pass attempts for one touchdown last season, but that’s not why he earned a scholarship offer to Texas Tech.

Sadler proved to be one of the state’s most versatile and dynamic players at any classification for the Eagles last season, and his role with the team included some play at quarterback, mainly in goal-line situations.

Sadler rushed for 404 yards and 15 touchdowns while catching 50 passes for 1,050 yards and 12 touchdowns and might see an increased role in quarterback play this season as a senior.

“We’ll continue to do that and utilize him at several different positions,” Rodgers said of Sadler. “He’ll get time at quarterback just like he did last year, but he can throw the ball, too.”

Argyle’s starting quarterback will be Brandon Boyzuick, who threw for 1,989 yards and 19 touchdowns last year, but don’t be shocked if Sadler does more than just line up under center at the goal line or in short-yardage situations.

“Quarterback isn’t new to him,” Rodgers said. “He was a very young quarterback for us and we saw his best chance to get on varsity, when he was young, was at wide receiver. We’re going to utilize him in whatever capacity we can utilize him to win games this year.”
