Mikey Gow is the most interesting high school quarterback in the Class of 2025. There is still a long way to go in his recruitment, but he has already drawn interest from multiple Power Five schools and recently left Lamar Jackson impressed.
Gow is not like most quarterbacks. He doesn’t throw with his right or left hand, he throws with his right and left hand.
Bellevue East High School (Neb.) rising sophomore Mikey Gow is an ambidextrous quarterback.
As a 14-year-old freshman, Gow earned the starting job last season and although his team was not very good, he turned quite a few heads. As a result of his play, he already has interest from Cincinnati, Kansas State, Iowa, Michigan, Notre Dame, Oklahoma State, Texas and Ole Miss, among others.
And he has already inked his first NIL deal.

The 6-foot-2, 180-pound prospect has a lot of room to develop and a lot of time to do so, but he is already well on his way. Gow has a top speed of 44.2 miles per hour on his throws and a .76-second release time.

Gow will also only continue to get stronger as he grows.

Obviously, Gow’s skillset is very unique. If a defense is to flush him out of the picket to his left, he can throw downfield with his left arm. If he is flushed right, he can throw with his right arm— which is his stronger and more accurate arm.
While football fans continue to freak out about Patrick Mahomes’ arm angle and ability to make ridiculous throws all over the field, Gow’s ambidextrousness could elevate that even further. He could roll to either side, flip his hips, and use his opposite arm to throw the ball rather than having to throw across his body.
It is something that has yet to be seen on any level of football. If Gow’s high school coach can continue to make plays in and outside of the pocket, his stock will only continue to rise and people will only continue to take notice, like Lamar Jackson did earlier this week.
