NC State QB competition hits new level
Posted August 16, 2013
In the second scrimmage of the preseason, the men competing for the starting quarterback job at North Carolina State University got to take hits for the first time.
It was the first time that new Wolfpack head coach Dave Doeren got to evaluate the competition in close-to-game situations. "We ran enough today where we could see if they could do it or not," Doeren said.
Junior Pete Thomas and Arkansas transfer Brandon Mitchell are vying for that starting spot. Both quarterbacks are still learning the system introduced by Doeren in his first year in Raleigh. Thomas does have the advantage of a spring session under his belt while Mitchell is still learning on the fly.
