Jeff High grad Ed Wright-Baker in the mix for starting quarterback at Indiana

> SOUTHERN INDIANA — Before graduating from Jeffersonville High School in 2009, Edward Wright-Baker set 12 career records including the school’s all-time passing record with 6,558 yards. He was responsible for 31 touchdowns as a senior and 39 during his junior year when he led the Red Devils to a 10-3 record and a 5A sectional title.

Those statistics helped him earn a spot on the roster at Indiana University. Now, as a redshirt sophomore, he is competing for the Hoosiers’ starting quarterback position after last year’s quarterback, Ben Chappell, graduated. Wright-Baker will be goiong up against former Columbus East quarterback Dusty Kiel, among others, for the chance to command new head coach Kevin Wilson’s fast-paced offense.

Recently, Wright-Baker spoke with the News and Tribune about what he learned from a film freak, how he feels about the coaching changes with his current and former team, and how much he likes Young Jeezy.

Q: Have you kept up with what's been going on at Jeffersonville High School this past year?

A: Not really. I haven't been down there a lot, but I know they just got a new coach this year, but I haven't met him yet or anything.

Q: Did you hear about how they got Bob Redman from (Louisville Male) last year and then the team went  1-9 and it was one of the worst years in Jeff High history? What are your thoughts about that?

A: It was surprising that that happened, but I know the guys that are still there on the team. I actually was working out with the quarterback Conway and Williams a couple weeks ago, throwing with them and stuff. I think they're going to do good this year. They're going to have a big run. They're working hard. They just gotta get used to the coaching change. I think that was a big thing for them.
