Cats have options at QB



The three players competing for the traditional quarterback are sophomore Reid Thompson, senior Jace Williams and freshman Conner Uselton. A decision will not come until after the preseason practice period.

“I really think we owe it to those guys to see what they can do in all the scrimmages,” Brickman said. “I told them it’s just going to be just straight film grade. Nothing else.”

All four quarterbacks got their chances to perform Saturday in an intrasquad under the lights at SMH. Rice had a tremendous night making plays with his feet, while both Uselton and Thompson were solid in the pocket.

Williams injured his ankle and had to be helped off the field. But Brickman didn’t believe it was a serious injury.

While Thompson, Williams and Uselton have to continue to fight for the starting spot, Rice doesn’t have to worry about that type of pressure anymore. He knows what is expected of him when he’s under center.

However, quarterback will not be the only position where Rice will see time.

“The biggest concern I have is Dunya, he’s only a sophomore,” Brickman said. “But he’s a phenomenal athlete. Right now what we are asking him to do is play our H-back, quarterback and safety. We only have four guys going two ways and he’s one of them as a sophomore. That is how good he is.”
