Blazing QB battle

UPDATE: Page has been edited for accuracy

Jake Medlock

Height: 6’3”

Weight: 220 lbs.

Previous school: Florida Atlantic

Spring game stats: 11 of 20 passes for 216 yards and three touchdowns

Medlock undoubtedly has the experience to be the next starter. He started 23 games for the Panthers. Medlock comes into a battle after leaving a quarterback battle at FIU, so he knows the drill. Medlock is adjusting quickly to the new offense, which is similar to the spread offense that he ran at FIU.  If he can remain healthy, which he’s had trouble doing before, Medlock could have a memorable final season. Division I experience cannot be denied. Coach Dean has had a fair share of success with transfer quarterbacks, and he may have found another.

 

 

Kaleb Nobles

Height: 5’9”

Weight: 192 lbs.

Previous school: Fitzgerald High School

Spring game stats:  13 of 22 passes for 221 yards with three touchdowns and one interception

The incumbent has an edge on Medlock due to the sole reason that he already knows the playbook. Nobles dazzled in a couple outings last season, including a comeback win against UWG. Appearing in 10 games last season helps his chances. Nobles has played the backup role the last two seasons and rightfully deserves to be crowned starter.  This battle should come down to the wire; regardless, the Blazers are set at QB.  As the saying goes, let the best man win.
