Will TCU Sophomore QB Foster Sawyer Be Ready To Come Back Swinging?

TCU head coach Gary Patterson says quarterback Foster Sawyer can make all the throws and must be ready to come back swinging.

After the graduation of TCU quarterback Trevor Boykin, it is very much a two-man race for the Frogs' starting job in the fall.

The competition?

Former Texas A&M quarterback Kenny Hill and sophomore Foster Sawyer - who did record 27 passing attempts in 2015. 

Hill is the name. He's the former SEC starter that fell out of grace. He's considered by many to be the favorite. 

But what about Foster? In his two biggest appearances last season against Kansas and Oklahoma, the former All Saints' Episcopal School (Fort Worth) prep managed to complete just 9-of-25 passes for two touchdowns and three interceptions. 

A learning experience no doubt. 

"I had ups and downs, more downs, I know that," said Sawyer. "It's definitely a learning curve. I'm ready for this year and want to help my team win games." 

Holding his preseason press conference on Wednesday, TCU head coach Gary Patterson was asked the biggest thing he's seen in the quarterback since last season. You can watch the video above.
