Schultz & Most battle for starting QB job at Wayne State

Nate Most started seven of the final eight games for Wayne State in 2011.
WAYNE Neb. (KTIV) -
The Wayne State Wildcats suffered 13 season ending injuries a season ago.
One of those key season ending injuries came in the first game of the season to one of the most important position on the field: quarterback.
After winning the starting job, on the third play of the season opener against the University of Nebraska-Kearney, Cyle Schultz suffered a dislocated hip. He completed one pass for four yards.
Back-up Evan Johnson came in, but he went down with a back injury in the third game of the season, meaning third stringer Nate Most would be taking the snaps.
Most started seven of the final eight games filled in nicely, throwing for 1,455 yards and 12 touchdowns.
Heading into fall camp, head coach Dan McGlaughlin thought it only fair to give each quarterback a fair share shake at winning the starting job this season.
"It was definitely tough to watch everything from the sideline," Schultz said. "I wasn't expecting it to happen. But, I'm just looking forward to this year, training hard and ready for it."
"The coaches kind of told me last year, that after how I performed in the fall, 'you showed us you can play,'" Most added. "You just have to play with confidence and you have the potential to be the guy. That's how I'm approaching this fall so far."
