Herd to play two QB’s against Norfolk State
Marshall coach Doc Holliday has decided to burn the redshirt of freshman quarterback Chase Litton after the 21-10 loss to Ohio this past weekend.
In a press conference held Tuesday afternoon, Holliday announced that he will play two quarterback’s against Norfolk State on Saturday. (Btw, that confirms one of my bold predictions that we would see more than one QB from the Herd this year.) This was coming off Birdsong’s performance of 13-for-29 with 84 yards passing where the Herd offense looked its worst in nearly five years. “At the end of the day I’m worried about winning football games, not five years down the road,” said Coach Holliday on burning Litton’s redshirt. The two QB’s were very close to each other during camp, and Doc is confident that Litton can step in and make plays.
Doc said that one reason he wants to bring in Litton is to give the receivers more chances to make plays. Against Ohio, the outside receivers had one catch for seven yards. He stresses that the offense needs to be able to make plays and move the ball. Ten points definitely won’t cut it as the season goes on.
Litton is very confident and ready to go. Hopefully he can spark some big plays from the outside receivers and essentially open up the inside for Devon Johnson. I believe his athleticism will be good for the type of offense Marshall runs. It’ll be interesting to see how this all plays out. His parents will be visiting for his first game.
