Drake football coach Rob Ash will wait until pre-season practice to decide on a starting quarterback for the upcoming season. Injuries shelved two different starting quarterbacks during the Bulldog’s 9-2 season in 2006 and Ash says the spot was wide open during spring drills.
Ash says one of the spots closely watched during spring was linebacker. The three linebackers were three-year starters and they also lost two four-year starters at receivers. Ash says the one solid position is runningback.
Drake opens the season August 30th at Illinois State.
