Wake scrimmage highlights: QB competition continues
By Heather Dinich
Wake Forest scrimmaged again on Thursday evening, and the quarterback competition still isn't settled.
Brendan Cross completed 11 of 13 attempts for 104 yards and rushed for 61 yards and three touchdowns. The Deacs scored on three of his first four drives.
“(Brendan) looked really good today, I thought,” said Grobe, according to the team's practice report. “Some of his throws could have looked a little prettier, but he got the job done. He took the offense on three really good drives. I was impressed with Brendan, I thought he did some really good stuff."
Freshman Tanner Price went 9-of-16 passing for 116 yards and a touchdown. Skylar Jones completed 8 of 12 passes for 99 yards, and also scored on a 65-yard touchdown run. Ted Stachitas completed five passes for 107 yards and a touchdown.
“We’ve got to go back to when we started and compile what they’ve done,” said Grobe. “I will say, if you come on strong at the end and the other guys fade, that’s another thing you’ve got to look at. I thought Brandon did some good things today. He’s obviously competing hard."
