Spring practice key for center, quarterback chemistry
Much has been made about the Cowboys’ starting quarterback switch, with a left knee injury to starter Wes Lunt throwing J.W. Walsh into first-team duties for almost all of the past two games.
But the guy getting the quarterback the football has changed, too.
So far this season, Lunt and Walsh have both worked with starting center Evan Epstein and backup Jake Jenkins. Lunt and Epstein both started the first two games, before Epstein went down with an ankle injury late in the Arizona contest. Against Louisiana-Lafayette, the center-quarterback combo went from Jenkins-to-Lunt to Jenkins-to-Walsh after Lunt’s injury. Then, against Texas, it was Epstein-to-Walsh when Epstein returned from injury and Walsh got his first collegiate start.
Despite the rotating quarterbacks and centers over the past two games, there haven’t been any snap issues. Epstein and Walsh both credit that to spring practice, when OSU’s three-man quarterback competition between Lunt, Walsh and Clint Chelf allowed all the signal-callers to work with all the centers.
