NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - The days are winding down until the Lumberjacks season opener on September 1st against McMurry. SFA coaches and players know that a decision would need to be made about who they will start at quarterback. Today they finally picked their leader, sophomore Brady Attaway.
"Bottom line is that he makes quicker decisions, he gets rid of the ball quicker and more consistently," said SFA head coach JC Harper. "So I think Brady right now gives us the best chance to win based on his performance in practice."
Harper said that after this weekend's scrimmage it was clear who the choice to replace Jeremy Moses should be this season. Attaway has remained humble through this process and still claims it was just a workmanship attitude through camp that got him the starting role.
"I feel like I just went out there everyday and did was I was suppose to do," said Attaway. "I did what the coaches wanted, made the right reads and throws and now I'm just looking to go out there and do all the small things right."
Attaway has not seen much playing time in the past, but when you have a Walter Payton award winner under center ahead of you it is hard to see the field often. Coach Harper and his staff say they are confident that Attaway can lead the Jacks to a third straight Southland conference title.
