Leading up to the season, we will look at the Aggie football team position-by-position on a day-to-day basis.
We start today with the quarterbacks....
This is one unit on the team that supplies intrigue and upside.
Sophomore Andrew Manley is expected to start the 2011 under center after starting four games last year. He completed 63 of 121 pass attempts for 604 yards, with one touchdown and six interceptions.
Statistics aside, Manley is a big body — listed at 6-foot-3, 223 pounds — with a live arm, making him a good prospect.
Far from a running quarterback, Manley needs to continue to work on his pocket mobility — namely his footwork to avoid the inevitable pass rush — and leadership skills.
Senior Matt Christian is a steady player and gritty leader who knows how to win.
Either way, the Aggies could do worse at the most important position on the field.
