Biographical Info: 6′ 210 – Guelph CVI [Guelph ON] & Guelph Junior Gryphons [formerly Bears] of the OFC. Brother of Jake Reinhart, former team captain, Special Team Player of the Year and Defensive Player of the Year.
Position: Quarterback – the fact that Job’s brother came in as a QB/LB and chose LB will always lead to questions, but both Job and Gryphon coaches have made it clear he is coming in as a QB.
Accomplishments: D10 All Star QB in 2013 & 2012 … A D10 All Star Honourable Mention in 2011 … led a GCVI offense that averaged 35 points per game in 2013. Reinhart tossed 14 touchdown passes and rushed for 6 more TDs. The Green Gaels were 5-1 in the regular season, 4-2 in 2012 … this summer in the OFC Varsity league Reinhart has completed 52 passes for 913 yards while rushing 57 times for 301 yards [5.3 ypc]. The Varsity Junior Gryphons run the ball 70% of the time. Reinhart has 6 passing and 5 rushing TDs … named to the OVFL 2012 JV All Star team.
My Take: A big pick up for Guelph for several reasons. Reinhart’s addition adds very good depth to a QB group that just lost veteran Luke Nangle, and will enter the 2014 season with 4th & 5th year guys Lindsey & Blewett. At 6′ & 210 pounds he is almost as big and almost as strong as brother Jake was in 5th year, so he is “physically ready to play”. Continuing the family connection while keeping the best of D10 talent in Guelph is also important in my books. As a QB I would expect Reinhart to redshirt in 2014 and compete in 2015. But he is a stud athlete who could contribute in other ways than playing QB so it is a “no lose” situation.
Reinhart’s 2013 GCVI highlight tape is excellent. What I see … a QB who is always poised in the pocket … sets up and executes the screen play very well … spreads the ball around … scrambles well, often pulling up to throw a pass rather than just taking off … a tough runner who is a load to stop which could make him an excellent goal-line/short yardage specialist early in his career. If he wanted to learn a second position to get into the line-up sooner, I think he could be an outstanding fullback.
