QB Boone ready to shine for Blue Devils
Posted March 4, 2013
Durham, N.C. — Duke University began spring football practice Monday.
The Blue Devils will have to replace one of the top passing combos in league history – QB Sean Renfree and wideout Conner Vernon.
New starter Anthony Boone played in 10 games last year, but that was a different offense.
"I was preparing to be the starter, just like any backup player," Boone said. "At some time the guy that was ahead of you is going to graduate and it's going to be your time to shine."
Duke is going to some zone-read to feature the feet of Boone.
Head coach David Cutcliffe endorsed his new starter Monday. "Anthony Boone is entrenched in our system, and he has played well whenever he has played," he said.
