Josh Jackson Named VT Starting Quarterback

Eleven days into preseason practice Virginia Tech Head Coach Justin Fuente has named his starting quarterback.
Reshirt freshman Josh Jackson has won the job. Nebraska transfer AJ Bush will be the number two quarterback with freshman Hendon Hooker likely taking a redshirt year.
Jackson hasn't taken a snap in a game yet but he dressed for every game in 2016 and has been around the offense considerably longer than the other two quarterbacks.
"The word that comes to my mind, day in and day out, he's been the most consistent in terms of the things that we talked about," said Coach Justin Fuente. "The kind of three criteria that we talked about before this camp started that we were looking for: taking care of the ball, expected outcomes and then how we feel. And in those three categories, we feel the best about Josh."
"I think just working hard and trying to be the best I can be everyday," added Jackson, "and always studying the playbook and defenses and everything like that is what gave me a shot at it."
