Moore coach Todd Watters thought he knew what he had in his two quarterbacks after his first spring with the team.
In Derek Harris, he had a confident runner in the option offense. In Colin Webb, he had a solid pocket thrower who served as the backup last year.
But during the summer, both closed the gap with the other in their weaker areas.
“We feel like now if one wins the job, the other isn't going to be far behind,” Watters said.
The players are trying to fit into the spread option offense that Watters is installing in his first year at the school. It's a similar system to what he's used at various stops across Oklahoma and Texas, though Watters said this offense will be run more out of the shotgun than in previous years.
Whoever the quarterback is, junior Evan Sprayberry will be one of his top targets. A hybrid player who is likely to play tight end, Sprayberry is likely to see time on both sides of the ball.
“He's a gritty, tough kid,” Watters said. “He's tough enough to play at the tight end spot and we feel like he's tough enough to start on both sides.”
Sprayberry is likely to be used at defensive end. Corban Lawrence is also expected to see an expanded role at receiver.
