Standout QB Preparing for Season

The Mississippi Gulf Coast is known for its football stars, but one Coast quarterback is blazing his own trail, on the verge of breaking numerous state passing records.
News 25’s Bryan Kennedy headed out to Bay St. Louis recently and got to know St. Stanislaus senior and LSU commit Myles Brennan.
Whether it’s in prayer after practice or on the field under center, St. Stanislaus quarterback Myles Brennan proudly accepts the role as leader of his team. “I just like leading the team. I like taking that responsibility. I like being the leader and taking charge. You know, just leading the way, leading the pack. I really don’t let the pressure get to me.”
The standout qb, headed to LSU next year, has passed for 11,045 yards and 117 touchdowns in his career, earning him one of 24 spots at the Elite Eleven Finals competition in Los Angeles, a camp for only the best quarterbacks in the nation.
Finishing in the top 11 here lands you a spot at another coveted camp at the Nike headquarters in Oregon. At one point during the competition in L.A., coaches had Brennan outside of their top 11. “I promised the whole staff that I was going to get the invite to Oregon because I fully believed I was going to go out to do everything I had to do to get it. I did get the invite. It was something, to go out to Oregon and perform on the highest level of competition, it’s just indescribable,” said Brennan.
While it’s his arm that’s gotten him to this point, Brennan’s coach says it is his mind that will take him to the next level once he gets to Baton Rouge. St. Stanislaus Head Coach Bill Conides said, “Can you avoid the pressure and make the right decision? Oh and by the way make an accurate throw as well. There’s a lot of intangibles that goes into playing the quarterback position and he certainly has all of them.”
After losing in the state title game two years in a row to the same team, bringing a title back to the Bay is on Brennan’s mind. Following that, he can’t wait to step onto the field at Tiger Stadium. “You can’t really explain the feeling in Death Valley. You just have to be there to know what it’s like. It’s just the 102,000 people that are watching you play football.”
Brennan only needs 1,514 passing yards and 27 touchdowns to break Mississippi career records in both categories. Both are currently held by former St. Stanislaus quarterback Dylan Favre.
