Who Will Guide the Hornet Offense?

The third in our series of Sacramento State previews covers the Hornet quarterbacks. Coach Steve Mooshagian must choose from three candidates.

This is the second season that Sacramento State Coach Steve Mooshagian must replace his starting quarterback. Crosby Wehr (6-3, 210, Jr.) is the only one of four that has ever taken a snap for the Hornets.

Wehr played in three games last season, including starting against Montana. Wehr was a disappointing 1-11 with three interceptions in his limited duty.

Junior college transfer Tim Brockwell (6-2, 235) is Wehr's closest competition for the starting job. He piloted Glendale Community College of Arizona to a perfect 11-0 mark and the NJCAA National Championship. In the process, Brockwell threw for 2,255 yards and 18 touchdowns and was named as the Region 1 Offensive Player of the Year.

Marcel Marquez (5-11, 185) is also fighting for position; he was named an All-American by JC Gridwire. Marquez played for College of the Canyons and threw for 3,107 yards and 28 touchdowns and also rushed for 660 yards and 13 more scores.

KC Patterson (6-3, 205, So.) is a transfer from the University of San Diego and will have to sit out a year.

Wehr has been with the Sacramento State program for three years, but Brockwell and Marquez are breathing down his neck. We may not know the starter until the week of the game. As will be outlined in the Hornet Receivers preview, whoever wins the starting job will have a bevy of targets to throw to.
