Bulldogs decide QB1 reps with rock, paper scissors game

Former star Mississippi State quarterback Dak Prescott is off to the Dallas Cowboys, and the Bulldogs have a major hole to fill under center. MSU has many viable candidates, but nobody has jumped to the front of the pack as of yet.

Four players – Nick Fitzgerald, Nick Tiano, Damian Williams and Elijah Staley are competing for the gig. So how did Mississippi State determine who would be QB1 at Tuesday’s practice? With a good old-fashioned game of rock, paper, scissors.

Fitzgerald emerged victorious. Skip to 0:55 in the below video for details:

Fitzgerald kept it simple and went with ‘rock.’ The 6-5 sophomore was Prescott’s primary backup last season, but he only attempted 14 passes. It’s good to see the Bulldogs having fun with their quarterback battle.
