GIRLS FLAG FOOTBALL PLAYER OF THE YEAR: Repicky leads Smiths Station on history-making run | High School

“I knew Day 1 at tryouts she was going to be quarterback. I could see it in her eyes,” Larsen said. She mentioned that Repicky is a stellar student with a GPA over 4.0.

“Every great quarterback’s got the brain that goes with the skills,” she went on. “I saw her throw and knew her brain, and I was like, ‘Alright, she’s the one, from Day 1.’ And that didn’t scare her, which is most important to me. When I was like, ‘Yeah, you’re the quarterback,’ that was never a scary thing for her. She was ready for the task.”

Over the course of the season, Larsen said Repicky became better and better as a passer, deciding after a few games that she wanted to limit her interceptions. By the state playoffs, she had eliminated them. Larsen doesn’t remember Repicky throwing a pick after the area tournament.

They also worked on footwork, with Larsen saying that Repicky is such a good athlete and fast runner it was almost counterintuitive for her to stop her feet and plant them to throw. But as she continued to learn the position in her first and only year playing quarterback, Repicky improved more and more.

“Once we hit the middle of the season and I realized how much faith my team had in me, and my coaches, I got more comfortable as we went on,” Repicky said.
