Mercer Island High School quarterback Jeff Lindquist, who just finished his sophomore year at MIHS, was named one of the top seven high school quarterbacks in the U.S. and will be honored at the Steve Clarkson Super 7 retreat.

According to a press release, Clarkson, a quarterback expert, will invite the top seven QB’s in the country to a retreat in Maui in July.

The others named to the Super 7 list include:

• Kyle Boehm from San Jose, Calif. (committed to UC Berkley)
• Jerrard Randle from Hollywood, Fla. (undecided)
• Brett Hundley from Chandler, Ariz. (undecided)
• Bennie Coney from Plant City, Fla. (undecided)
• Jeff Lindquist from Mercer Island, Wash. (undecided)
• Max Wittek of Santa Ana, Calif. (committed to USC)
• Jacoby Brissett of West Plam Beach, Fla. (undecided)

The group was selected from Clarkson’s Dreammaker tour across the country from February through June where Clarkson and a team did evaluations of players, workouts and interviews.

Clarkson has long been regarded as one of the top authorities on quarterback coaching, having coached players like Ben Roethlisberger, Matt Leinart and Jimmy Clausen.
