10 to Watch 2013: Luke Rubenzer
Luke Rubenzer, Sr., QB, Saguaro
The jury is still out on how well Rubenzer will do in college. Some BCS-level programs were scared off by his height (6-feet) but the University of California took a chance and offered him a scholarship. Rubenzer committed to the Bears this summer and will now look to put the finishing touches on an impressive high school career. Arguably the best dual threat quarterback in the state, Rubenzer finished last season completing 145-of-211 passes for 2,834 yards with 36 touchdowns and six interceptions while rushing for 1,184 yards and another 10 scores. Rubenzer won a state title as a sophomore but lost last year in the quarterfinals. He wants to go out on top in 2013.
