Through all the tough times endured by the Aggie football team last season, Chase Holbrook was someone who remained relatively consistent.
Holbrook slipped statistically last year compared to the 2006 season, but he had a respectable campaign nonetheless. He had strong games against Nevada and Fresno State late in the year when the roster was hurt by injury. He torched Idaho and played banged up for some of the season as well.
Holbrook asked coach Hal Mumme this offseason if he could be more involved in drills and conditioning with the team during spring workouts. Last spring, the quarterback took it light along with much of the first-team offense. Not this year though. Is Holbrook a superstar quarterback or a product of the system? Hard to say right now. But he is a leader. And he can throw the ball with deft touch. He is what the Aggies need under center this year. A leader, who will play under most circumstances while taking some heat without complaint.
I've said it many a time. With a healthy offense, this team will score a ton. And Holbrook should have a nice year once again.
