The race is on to replace Dak Prescott.
Now that the most acclaimed quarterback in Mississippi State history has concluded his collegiate career, a quartet of signal callers are clamoring to fill his shoes beginning with MSU’s spring workouts. Nick Fitzgerald, Elijah Staley, Damian Williams and Nick Tiano are each putting their best foot forward this spring with hopes of hearing their name called as MSU’s starter when the Bulldogs begin the 2016 season in the fall.
As important as the proceedings are, Mississippi State is in no hurry to rush to judgement.
“We’re going to take our time, go through the evaluation process and try to put guys in as many situations as we possibly can to decide who is going to play for us,” MSU quarterbacks coach Brian Johnson said. “It’s been a good, fun, healthy competition. It’s all about your mindset and how you attack practice everyday. You just have to come out with the goal to leave the field better than what you stepped on it that day. I think the guys have done a good job and just have to continue to work and go through the process.”
