Roseville High School's independent student press

Freshman QB trains with the best

November 16, 2022

Roseville High School is known for having great athletes, but when you find a three sport athlete that’s good at all three sports, it’s a rare find. Mason Susnara is a Freshman who is a starter on the Junior Varsity level at quarterback. 

Over the summer heading into his freshman year, Susnara took big steps by attending the Manning passing academy. He met some big name quarterbacks at the camp, such as Ty Thompson who is the quarterback at the University of Oregon. In addition, he worked with Will Levis who is the quarterback at the University of Kentucky. 

Lastly, Susnara created a relationship with one of the best quarterbacks in the nation, Bryce Young. Young is a quarterback at the University of Alabama who is a Heisman candidate and potential first overall pick in the 2023 NFL draft.

“[Young] taught me a lot about mentality and how to play the game the right way,” said Susnara.    

He also attended the top quarterback camp in the country. The Elite 11 camp is a premier quarterback event in the nation that brings together the nation’s top signal callers each offseason.  

  Towards the end of the summer he also attended the National Football Academies, The Dual-Threat National Quarterback competition. Susnara placed first overall for all Freshmen quarterbacks.  

Susnara took his skills from the summer to the football season and absolutely dominated the whole season. Susnara is a 5 foot 11 inch, 160 pound beast on the field and he is only a freshman. In the first 4 games, he led his team with 370 passing yards and 5 Touchdowns in the air. He also had 0 interceptions leading him to have a quarterback rating of 128. The team started with a 3-0-1 start. 

When he got his opportunity on JV he didn’t hesitate and became the leader. Susnara lead by example by his hard work and consistently pushed his teammates to be better. 

 “He is one of the great quarterbacks I have ever seen,” said junior varsity teammate Nick Bernasconi. “He is the future of Roseville.”

Now there weren’t any stats posted on Max Preps to report on his performance but the wins do all the talking. Susnara led the team in his first game against Yuba City on a comeback in a nail-biting game with a 27-26 win. 

The next week Susnara stepped on under the lights and dominated again against Bella Vista with a 35-0 victory. 

 After a great win against Bella Vista, and with the Varsity game being canceled due to some allegations against River Valley, he took the chance to show the city of Roseville what he was about. Mason had multiple 50-plus yard passing TDs that game. 

The next week was on the road against Inderkum and it didn’t end up in Roseville favors, but that didn’t stop Susnara from forgetting about the past and moving onto the most important game of the year: Woodcreek. 

Susnara absolutely came out firing and quieted the town of Woodcreek leading Roseville to a 41-15 win. 

As Susnara finished the year on a high note he looks to take his talents over to the basketball courts in the winter and then in the spring time over to the diamond where he looks for a chance to play Varsity baseball as a freshman.
