Dayne Crist named starting quarterback

Brian Kelly has announced that Dayne Crist will be the starting quarterback for the Irish this year, leaving Tommy Rees as a back up.

Brian Kelly stated that the competition was fierce but he selected Dayne in the end.

“Both of those young men had a great battle for that starting position but Dayne will be our starter. We have great confidence in his ability to lead our football team to a championship.”

Obviously, Tommy must be disappointed. Coach Kelly said he hopes Rees is because that is only a natural feeling to have.  But, Kelly later stated that Tommy “knows what he is capable of doing.”
