ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Tanner Mangum proved to be a new kind of dual-threat quarterback.

The four-star quarterback from Eagle (Idaho) High School began Thursday night's Under Armour All-America Game as a quarterback for the White team. He was forced to switch sides during halftime after the three quarterbacks on the Black team's roster were unable to play because of minor injuries.

"It's something new, but that's how football is. It wasn't too bad," Mangum said after his initial team, the White team, beat the Black team in front of a crowd of 24,710 at Tropicana Field.
