Idaho football spring practice day two
MOSCOW, ID —
This week started spring football for the Idaho Vandals and on Wednesday we got our first look at the 2018 squad.
The big question surrounding the Vandals early: who will replace Matt Linehan?
Based on last year’s roster… it’s down to Mason Petrino, Colton Richardson or Dylan Lemle.
Head coach Paul Petrino gave us some insight about the early part of the race.
“It’s an open battle right now, and to be honest with you, what this spring’s about is getting all three good enough to win with.” Petrino said after Wednesday’s practice.
He went on to say that playing three guys last year. Linehan for most of the season, but he got hurt late and Petino starting two games but getting hurt against New Mexico State, forcing Idaho to burn Richardson’s redshirt.
The QB race probably won’t be decided till way later in the fall.
The two quarterbacks who got the most playing time on the roster last season: Petrino and Richardson.
Petrino is a Pullman alum, while Richardson is a Lewiston grad.
