Golson, Hendrix in close QB battle for Notre Dame
SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) -- Everett Golson and Andrew Hendrix have emerged as the front runners to be Notre Dame's starting quarterback.
Coach Brian Kelly said they're getting pretty much even work during drills, even though Golson got most of the reps with the first team during Wednesday's practice that was open to the media. Golson is a sophomore who did not play a year ago and Hendrix is a junior who appeared in five games last season.
Freshman Gunner Kiel is No. 3 right now, while last year's starter Tommy Rees is mostly a spectator in practice. Rees was suspended for the Sept. 1 opener against Navy in Dublin, Ireland, after he was involved in a scuffle with police.
