The Triple Option: Breaking down each FSU quarterback’s game

New, 9 comments

What does each quarterback bring to Norvell’s offense?

Florida State football head coach Mike Norvell is gearing up for the closest thing he’s had to spring football in his brief tenure in Tallahassee. For an offensive-minded coach, that means his focus is turned to the quarterback position.

While this position seems to be a lock from the start, there is some value in taking a look at what all of the potential starters bring to the table.

The quarterback race is not widely believed to be in the hands of the speedy Jordan Travis, despite starting for FSU for most of last season. Instead, senior quarterback McKenzie Milton is the favorite to start.

We analyzed Milton’s game in early January, and also broke down his performance in the 2017 Peach Bowl versus Auburn

A star at UCF, Milton seems to be the odds-on favorite to win the position. However, you can never discount the young and versatile Chubba Purdy from making a run at the starting gig.

All of these potential starters have different tools to work with and they can drastically change how Norvell runs his offense. Join the guys at the Triple Option to dive into some film and get a better understanding of Mike Norvell might adapt to calling plays for these three potential field generals.
