Sage Advice: Don't overlook Pottstown's Reinhart when considering area's best QBs

Pottstown quarterback Sage Reinhart
By Don Seeley

POTTSTOWN — Listen to any conversation about area quarterbacks, especially those in the Pioneer Athletic Conference, and you’ll likely hear someone say something about Brandon Bossard, Hank Coyne, Tory Hudgins, Rasaan Stewart or Dylan Wesley.
For some reason, Sage Reinhart’s name rarely gets mentioned.
“Without a doubt, he goes unnoticed,” Pottstown head coach Brett Myers said of his senior quarterback. “But that’s his personality. He always gives credit to everybody else but himself. He’s a team player ... that’s what he’s all about.”
No one takes losses harder than Reinhart. He has had his share to digest, too, since becoming an emergency starter for four games in his sophomore season — when senior Jeff Endy went down with a shoulder injury — and then a full-time starter as a junior last season. Those losses may be the reasons he hasn’t gotten the hype of Methacton’s Bossard, who has already committed to Division I-A Eastern Michigan; of Spring-Ford’s Coyne, who last year directed the Rams to a PAC-10 title; of Hudgins, who led the area in rushing and scoring while guiding the Falcons to another District 1-Class AAA title; of Perkiomen Valley’s Stewart, who can punish opponents just as much defensively as he can under center; or of Upper Perkiomen’s Wesley, who threw up some big numbers a year ago.
Maybe it is the losses, or his stature — once a mere 5-foot-6, 145-pounder who has added a few inches and about 20 pounds for this fall’s football grind — that keeps Reinhart under most fans’ radar.
“But, with all due respect to the other quarterbacks in our league, Sage is the quarterback I want leading my team,” Myers said.
