Re: Lets go Pitt Football!
Bill Stull named the starter
PITTSBURGH -- Pitt football coach Dave Wannstedt picked Bill Stull on Wednesday as the starting quarterback for the Panthers this season.
A 6-foot-3, 205-pound junior, Stull took nearly every repetition with the first-team offense during more than two weeks of practice.
"It's obvious, but I just haven't said it yet: Billy Stull has had an outstanding camp," Wannstedt said. "The guy has played smart. He's made good decisions with the football, and he's thrown the football very accurately. He's shown great leadership skills. And he'll be the starter on opening day."
The Panthers host Bowling Green Aug. 30 at noon at Heinz Field.
Stull finished the 2007 camp as the starter and played a solid first half in the opener against Eastern Michigan. However, he injured his right thumb early in the third quarter and had season-ending surgery.
"It feels awesome, but I'm just glad that I was able to prove to the coaches, myself and my teammates that I've earned the spot again," Stull said. "It's out in the open, and now I'm ready to move on to Bowling Green."
