R-Fr., Quarterback, 6-3, 208

Enters the season in close competition with Benji Walker to
replace VU all-time leading QB Greg Zolman in QB role. Has
all the tools - size, excellent arm strength, mobility and
intelligence - to win the job. Takes things in stride, extremely
level-headed for age. Continually caused headaches for VU
first-team defense as a redshirt last year.
