THREE GUYS: Multiple QBs Will Be The Norm At B-CU
By Dan Ryan
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - It will never be a "one guy" quarterback situation at Bethune-Cookman.
As long as Brian Jenkins is head coach, it will be two guys, three guys, four guys or even five guys "pulling the trigger'' -- and Jenkins prefers it that way.
"I'm excited about what we have at quarterback," Jenkins said during his weekly media luncheon Wednesday. "Anybody who's watched film can tell you one of the bright spots has been that we have different people who can run the offense.
"Jackie [Wilson] has done a good job of getting the team up and down the field," Jenkins added. "Brodrick [Waters] has done a wonderful job. Quentin [Williams] has come in and showed he can do the job and complete the task. It's always good to have multiple guys who can be productive and have different styles that can bring something different to the table."
Jenkins' philosophy stems from 2010, when Matt Johnson went down with an injury in the third quarter in the Florida Classic and was done for the post-season. Wilson was also nursing injuries and had limited playing time, but was forced to take over the Wildcats in their playoff game against New Hampshire.
"I had 1.5 quarterbacks," Jenkins said. "We were limited in the playoffs. I always said I'd never get caught like that again. I want to make sure all my quarterbacks are experienced, are capable and have leadership. We've shown we can go with any one of the three and still be successful."
B-CU hosts Tennessee State in its Hall of Fame Game Saturday at Municipal Stadium in Daytona Beach. Kickoff is 4 p.m.
