Dorrel impressed with QB Luke Anthony

November 8th, 2017 - We may have gotten a peek into the future of quarterback play for the ACU Wildcats on Saturday. 

Head coach Adam Dorrel moved red-short freshman Luke Anthony into the starters role, and he did a great job. 

Anthony threw for 345 yards and two touchdown with no interceptions in his first start in college football. 

It was a good start, and his coach liked what he saw. 

"He played phenomenal, very proud of his effort. I thought his preparation leading into the game was spectacular. He's done a really good job all year of being a leader on and off the field, being a great teammate, being very unselfish," Adam Dorrel said.

"A lot of times at the quarterback, other positions play a lot, even if they're backups, but the backup quarterback spot can be hard for those kids to stay engaged if they're not playing a lot, and he's just done a really good job keeping himself ready."

The Wildcats play their final home game of the year against Southland Conference power Sam Houston State. 

They get that game started at 2 p.m. on Saturday.
