2019 Spring Practice Questions: Who will be Army’s No. 2 QB

Hard to believe that the opening of Army football spring practice is just one week away.

One of the biggest questions for the Black Knights this spring is who will back up starting quarterback Kelvin Hopkins.

Sophomore Cam Thomas, who was Army’s No. 2 quarterback and started in a win over Miami (Ohio) last season, has moved on.

Sophomore Christian Anderson and freshmen Jabari Laws, Mike Mbony and Tyhier Tyler are expected to received their share of snaps in the spring, coach Jeff Monken said earlier this month. Laws was moved to slotback to strengthen depth near the end of last season but is returning under center.

Freshman Clay Czyzynski is a wild card. Czyzynski impressed as a scout-team quarterback last season. When asked about Czyzynski’s position in the future, Monken said, “Not sure.”

“Not sure if he’s a D-back,” Monken said. “He’s got something about him but I don’t know what he is going to be. He’s not fast enough to be a guy (that you say), ‘This guy is heck of athlete and he runs the option and get himself loose nobody is going to catch him.’ He’s big but he’s got to run more physical that’s something that we have talked to him about. Be more of a B-back type quarterback. That’s his body type so he has to do that. Perhaps, maybe it’s playing B-back (fullback) if he can play more physical. I certainly think it’s up to him. I really like him and we’ll see how spring goes.”
