At 5-foot-9 and 175 pounds, Colorado City quarterback Markis Monroe could easily be mistaken for a high school fullback at first glance. Maybe a halfback or even a linebacker.
Once he steps behind center, however, Monroe quickly demonstrates that the cookie cutter doesn’t necessarily need to be applied for successful signal callers.
Not only did Monroe help the Wolves finish 11-2 last year, but he did so by passing for more than 1,400 yards and rushing for more than 800 in his first varsity season at the position. He also hit 55 percent of his throws and accounted for 32 combined touchdowns rushing and passing.
