Valley View coach George Howanitz on Boone: “Janaasah is the true definition of High School Athlete. He is the best dual threat QB to ever play in District 2. His video game moves and electric playmaker ability made him almost impossible to defend. Defensively he was the same kind of big play guy – big hits, INTs, fumble recoveries. Janaasah’s initials should be WOW!”
