Will Gardner named UofL's starting quarterback

08/26/2014 07:30 AM

The heir apparent to Teddy Bridgewater officially took his title over the weekend when head coach Bobby Petrino named Will Gardner as UofL’s starting quarterback. While the announcement had been expected for some time, especially considering Gardner is a team captain, it was still newsworthy for the Cards.

In two seasons with the program, Gardner has only played in a very limited role. Regardless, the expectations will still be very high as the redshirt sophomore takes the reins of Coach Petrino’s high octane offense.

It’s a task that will be pressure-packed, but Gardner is ready to take on the challenge.
