“We feel really good about our quarterback depth this year but at the end of the day it’s about managing the game,” head coach Greg Gattuso said via Twitter. “Vinny kind of stood out as camp went on but it was very close, Will Brunson is a guy we trust…we feel good about both of these young men.”
He [Testaverde] beats out last season’s starter Will Brunson and backup Nyc Burns for the job as UAlbany will begin their season on the road against ACC foe Pittsburgh.
