College football: Army quarterback depth, talent pleases head coach Jeff Monken

WEST POINT – Jeff Monken has never felt more comfortable about the talent and depth of the Army quarterback position. Now all he has to do is choose one, or two, to start. “I don’t know who the starter will be,’’ Monken said following Saturday’s scrimmage at Michie Stadium, “but we’ll settle in on one for the first game. We might play more than one guy. I don’t know that that’s always great to rotate quarterbacks, but we did it last year and it worked pretty good for a couple of games there.

On Saturday, Army capped off a 9-2 season with a gutty 10-7 win over Air Force to earn the Commander-in-Chief’s Trophy after having beaten Navy the week prior. It wasn’t the best Army team in recent memory, as a rotation of quarterbacks tried their best to lead the way for the triple option attack, never quite finding the explosiveness that offense is capable of, but still finished fourth in the nation in rushing yards per game at 281.
