Quarterback Controversy in Tri-Cities

Posted: Updated:

Kennewick, WA---

     Goalies. Pitchers. Quarterbacks. The three most scrutinized positions in sports. Also, the three positions coaches hate talking about when it comes to this question... Whose the starter? Well in Tri-Cities,  the Fever have yet to decide who will be under center opening day. It's either newcomer Antwon Young, or returning starter Houston Lillard.   Lillard led Tr-Cities into the playoffs last year.

      Last night, both threw for under 100 yards in the Fever's 53-14 exhibition win against Wenatchee Valley.

      Head coach Adam Shackleford said, "There very capable at winning football games for us. We knew that before the season, both of the them capable of doing that. It's going to be a good battle you know. Houston's got a little more experience in his game, but antwon young is learning fast. And this week is going to be very interesting."

     Fever quarterback Young said, "Definitely friendly. I mean everything that I 've learned so far Houston has came out and taught me. He's helped me. I mean he didn't have to... Him being the guy that was here last year, but from the first day I walked in he came to me with open arms... And helped me get along with this transition."

    Opening day next Saturday, February 26th at home against Arizona.
