Notre Dame Spring Football Practice Update: Quarterbacks

To some, Notre Dame is in a difficult situation. They have 2 very close starting quarterbacks, and 2 developing quarterbacks. Not everyone can see the potential this team has. But, I for one, am excited to see how all this plays out.

Tommy Rees is performing well. One thing head coach Brian Kelly mentioned in his press conference yesterday was that Rees has the most experience and that he should use it to his advantage.

 “Listen (Tommy), you have more experience than anyone out here, so go out and act like it.” -Brian Kelly

Brian Kelly is absolutely right, I believe Toomy Rees can be the starter if he plays with the confidence we don’t always see. If he can’t, then we’ll go with Andrew Hendrix.

Andrex is still a young player (sophomore), so he has a lot to work on. Andrew said that he’s doing everything he can to “learn from his mistakes.” Saturday will be a great test for him to see whether or not if he’s progressing.
