Corwin Cutler attended Indian River (Chesapeake) before transferring to Ocean Lakes (Virginia Beach, VA) before the start of his junior year.  Cutler, nicknamed “Turtle,” arrived just four days before the start of preseason practice but was able to claim the starting quarterback spot in a short amount of time.

“[Cutler] came in and competed for the quarterback spot against a senior.  He did a great job of keeping his composure when playing against Dinwiddie and Bethel in the preseason,” Ocean Lakes head coach Chris Scott said.  “He did some good things.  The thing that impressed me most was how he responded when he threw an interception.  It was against Dinwiddie when he threw his first interception, and he takes off and crushes the guy who made the interception.  He knocked the chin strap off the guy.  He was upset.  That was kind of impressive.”

Cutler, an honorable mention all-Beach District pick in 2011, went on to throw for over 1,700 yards and 17 touchdowns for the 8-3 Dolphins.  The 6’3″ (he’s close to 6’4″ according to Scott), 190-pound junior has shown leadership this offseason, leading by example in the weight room while also making serious strides in the classroom.

“First there is his ability to throw.  I feel like he has got one of the better arms in the state,” Scott said.  (Check out Cutler’s Hudl.com profile for his junior season video.)  “He has a very strong and accurate arm.  Plus, he’s added about 26 pounds of muscle since he has been with us.  He’s really improving his grades and transcripts.”

Cutler also showed well recently in a Badger Sport/New Level Athletics Elite 7-on-7 in Georgia.

“Corwin went down to Georgia Tech for a national 7-on-7 tournament.  The 757 team finished third overall, and Corwin did really well,” Scott said.  “He and (Bayside junior quarterback) Deion Stitt both did well mixing well with guys they don’t normally throw to.  Corwin raised some eyebrows.  I really think he is one of the better quarterbacks in the state, and he’ll have the chance to prove it.”

With respect to Cutler,
