Irish Focus Remains on QBs

Irish junior QB Evan Sharpley has a tough task this spring. Not only is he battling 3 other teammates for the starting quarterback job, he's also playing another sport---baseball--during spring practice.

Sharpley admits doing both is tough, but he's not making any excuses. In fact, he's confident that whoever gains the QB position willl represent the team well.

Sharpley says that his biggest concern is winning and he will support whatever decision the coaching staff ultimately makes.

While the four Irish QBs continue to battle, they have a few key seniors returning for a 5th season to rely on.

Tight End John Carlson will be the focal point of this year's offense. He admits things are different in practice this spring without Brady Quinn as the quarterback. Carlson says that's not a bad thing though. He sees four talented players competing for a job, making each other better everyday.

Four QBs instead of one is also an adjustment for center John Sullivan. The 3-year starter says the team is doing a great job of balancing reps so that he gets to work with each QB for a considerable amount of time.
