QB Schurr to miss spring practice

Army junior quarterback A.J. Schurr will miss the team’s spring practice following offseason shoulder surgery, coach Jeff Monken said Thursday.

Schurr is Army’s only returning quarterback with experience. He played in all 12 games in 2014, making consecutive starts against Yale and Ball State on Sept. 27 and Oct. 4. Schurr was the team’s fourth-leading rusher (320 yards) and completed 12 of 28 passes with one touchdown and one interception.

“He (Schurr) had shoulder surgery right after the season ended so he’s going to be out for the spring,” said Monken, whose team opens spring practice on March 12.

Schurr’s absence leaves Army with three quarterbacks – sophomore Matt Kaufmann and freshmen Ahmad Bradshaw and Seth Gonzales – for the spring.

Kaufmann was the star of last year’s spring game. He left the team during the 2014 season but returned late to be a scout-team quarterback. Bradshaw missed a good portion of the 2014 season due to an administrative matter. Gonzalez was the jayvee quarterback in 2014.

“We¬† got a chance to see Matt be the scout-team quarterback and he’s such a great competitor and I don’t have any doubt that he will know what to do and he will compete,” Monken said. “Seth Gonzales got to play in jayvee games so he’s going to have a basis of the offense. I hope all three of those guys will compete and it will be interesting to see who comes out of that pack and then going into fall, we have a couple of guys coming in from the prep school and see how they will compete for the starting job.”
