Wofford will enter the 2013 football season without Brian Kass under center.
According to head coach Mike Ayers, the Terriers’ starting quarterback will transfer from the school for his final season. Kass, a native of Raleigh, N.C., played in 27 games in three seasons for Wofford. He made his first career start in the 2012 season opener against Gardner-Webb.
Kass completed 43.2% of his pass attempts and tossed six touchdowns for the Terriers in his junior year. For his career, Kass was a 48.9% passer with 13 touchdowns and just two interceptions. Kass also rushed for five touchdowns in his junior season and was the team’s third-leading rusher in 2012. He had eight rushing scores in his career.
With Kass out of the mix, the Terriers will have several quarterbacks fighting for the starting spot. James Lawson and Michael Weimer played last season, while Evan Jacks redshirted last season. Ayers is doubtful that a starter will be named by the end of spring practice.
Besides the situation at quarterback, Ayers also spoke with us about returning to the practice field, replacing running back Eric Breitenstein and his team’s goal of having a more effective passing attack.
