Irish: Quinn Shanbour, Camden Tharp in competition (kinda)...
By Robert Przybylo
When is a competition not really a competition? When it’s Bishop McGuinness football and talking about who will be the starting quarterback between Camden Tharp and Quinn Shanbour.
Head coach Kenny Young said he’s not in a real hurry to make a decision. And that the title of starting QB is really just in name only as he said both are going to see the field on offense – no matter what.
We’ve determined that they are two of our best 11 players on offense. They might play a number of different positions.” – Young
The Irish will only get in six spring practices, Young said. They were able to get in two last week, but when the school does finals, no extracurricular activities are allowed. That meant three straight days of nice weather but no practices.
That’s alright, Young said, because the spring is more about getting into that football state of mind more than anything else. The Irish are yet another one of the stellar teams that will be at Edmond North next week.
Young said the team is incredibly young, saying he thinks only four starters are returning on both sides of the ball. Luckily, one of those is running back star LaRone Richardson.
Richardson was hampered by injuries but has the ‘wow’ factor when healthy. He was healthy as a sophomore and right now, he’s doing pretty good.
Replacing LBs Jay Lester and Jameel Whitney will be the toughest chore. The way the McGuinness system operates, the LBs make a lot of the tackles. Young said Lester and Whitney are two of the best he’s ever had.
