"No, not yet. We'll sit down and watch the tape (today) and early next week, I'll let the kids know," Coen said. "I can put you guys on my text message list like Sen. (Barack) Obama."
The third-year Lehigh head coach did say the two frontrunners for the position are junior Chris Bokosky and sophomore J.B. Clark.
Isn't that like saying the frontrunners for the vice-presidential pick were Joe Biden, Evan Bayh and Hillary Clinton?
Junior QB Chris Bokosky chimed in too:
Bokosky, who threw for 469 yards and two touchdowns last season, said the competition is fun and friendly among the four quarterbacks.
"We're a close group. We're competitors," he said. "It really brought out the best in us. We push each other to get better day in and day out."
Whomever wins the QB derby, that is pretty good to hear.
Can't forget to add the report on Lehighsports of the final practice before the season starts:
Coen then commented on Saturday’s scrimmage. “I thought the offense ran the ball much better than our last scrimmage, but I was disappointed in our short yardage and goal line situations from the offensive side of things. The defense won the red zone battles, and the offense converted on a few third downs to sustain drives, so overall there was good give-and-take and a lot of positive things happened out here.”
One of the highlights of the day came from sophomore DB Jarard Cribbs on a punt return which he took in for a touchdown. Cribbs fielded the ball in the middle of the field, juked his way around several defenders to the outside and sprinted up the left sideline to pay dirt. Senior WR Jason Figura had a solid showing with two touchdown catches, including one that came on a long pass from junior QB Chris Bokosky. Bokosky also threw a touchdown pass to junior WR Brien Ruyak up the left sideline.
Sophomore QB J.B. Clark looked strong under center, throwing a long pass to junior WR Jimmy Potocnie down the middle of the field, which set up a Clark to Figura touchdown a few plays later. “Both quarterbacks did good things today,” Coen said. “Our young receivers really stepped up and made plays and I was pleased with our return units. Freshman WR De’Vaughn Gordon had a nice kick-off return and Cribbs made a great play on his return.”
Oi! What's my two-deep going to look like now?
