Many seem to think Zac Dahman has a good shot at emerging as the starter entering the spring and upcoming season, and who can fault them. Here's a young man at a mere 170-pounds, that endured constant pressure and sacks from opposing pass rushes, but still maintained his composure and put up quality numbers over the past two years. However, Coach Bobby Ross will also give Nevels, Silva, Crehan, Bybee, Laws and Lay every chance to emerge as the Black Knight's starter.
Spring Peek: Quarterbacks
is clear that the leader of this group of QB's must demonstrate strong
decision-making, accuracy and athletic (mobility) skills – a must if Coach Ross
wants to implement a more downfield attacking style of offense. In addition, whoever wins the starting
job, will benefit from a more experienced offensive line, coupled with a two
back offensive that should result in better pass protection.
year ago the Black Knights had four QB's on the roster and gave equal first-team
reps at the beginning of spring to each of them. It will be interesting to see how Coach
Ross and staff will handle this process given the past years inability of any
one of the four or five quarterbacks to actually separate themselves from the
rest of the pack.
Silva show improved decision-making?
How will the quarterbacks deal with what could ultimately turn into another
