What’s goin on?

Thanks for participating in today’s chat. Lots of good questions. I don’t know about the answers…

Anyway, Towson coach Rob Ambrose lost a pretty good quarterback in Grant Enders.

Peter Athens, a fifth-year senior who actually started for Ambrose as a freshman in 2009 before a torn ACL cut his season short and gave way to Enders who led the Tigers to a pair of Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) titles.

“He had a very, very good camp. It was a three-hour race that got down to two between he and [sophomore] Connor Frazier,” Ambrose said. “While Connor was good, I’m not going to speak poorly of him but the race was tight but the last scrimmage pretty much did it and Pete pulled away.”

 UConn head coach Paul Pasqualoni and the Huskies don’t figure to be caught off guard here.

“I know they made an announcement they’re starting Athens but the unknown at the quarterback position is something that’s a little unsettling,” Pasqualoni said. “We’re preparing to see two quarterbacks. We’re preparing to see Frazier because my understanding is he is the better runner of the two. They do a great job with the QB run phase of their offense so the two-quarterback system is a concern to me as well.”
