Oklahoma State football notebook: 'In Case of Emergency' QB?

J.W. Walsh is out for the season, Wes Lunt is injured again — what happens if No. 3 quarterback Clint Chelf gets injured against West Virginia? Former Midwest City High QB Jase Chilcoat will be next in line.

Oklahoma State coaches have already reached into the classroom (and the Boone Pickens Stadium broadcast booth) to find a third-team quarterback, wooing back former walk-on after starter Wes Lunt sustained a knee/ankle injury in September.

Now backup J.W. Walsh is out for the season, and Lunt is dinged up again, missing most of the second half of the Kansas State game with an apparent head injury.

So if Lunt cannot go against West Virginia, Clint Chelf gets the start and Jase Chilcoat slides up to the backup role, who becomes the new emergency QB3?

Charlie Moore, perhaps?

“I don't know, if Coach (Todd) Monken and them asked me to …” Moore said Monday.

Moore was a dual-threat quarterback for Bullard High School in Texas and was recruited as an athlete.

“It came up right at first, when J.W. got hurt,” Moore said. “But now since Chilcoat's back and everything, I don't know that's how that's going to work. But if I have to, I'm sure I'll run as fast as I can.

“If they tell me that, I'll just have to stay after (practice) and make sure I'm familiar with some plays. I'll do whatever they ask me to. There's no telling, though. Hopefully everybody's healthy.”

Monken has joked that maybe there's more where Chilcoat came from.

“The other day, the intramural league was playing on our field and I told Mike (Gundy) there were a couple good quarterbacks out there,” Monken said. “I was going to ask Jase if there was a guy who was second-team All-Intramural, so we could go pick him up.”
