Virginia head coach Mike London has named redshirt sophomore David Watford the team's starting QB.
Watford redshirted the 2012 season after falling behind Michael Rocco and Phillip Sims on the depth chart. However, he has some playing experience dating back to 2011 when he appeared in 10 games. He beat out redshirt freshman Greyson Lambert for the starting job. Mon, Aug 12, 2013 12:15:00 PM

Coach Mike London does not plan to redshirt quarterback David Watford.

With Michael Rocco leading a late-season surge, there was some question as to whether Watford would be redshirted for 2012. After all, Rocco clearly separated himself as the starter. Also, Rocco will be a junior and Watford a sophomore meaning Watford could still have had three years of eligibility following a redshirt season. London, howver, wants to have two experienced QBs he can turn to in 2012.

Player departures have left David Watford as Virginia's lone experienced backup quarterback.

Watford saw the field quite a bit early in his freshman season of 2011. He had 20 attempts in the Cavs’ fourth and fifth games, but Watford struggled thereafter and Michael Rocco pulled away as the clear-cut No. 1. Watford completed only 40.5 percent of his passes for the season, throwing for 346 yards with 3 TDs and 4 INTs. With two QBs that would have challenged him for playing time behind Rocco having transferred, Watford can breathe easier for now knowing he and Rocco are the only rostered signal callers with game experience.

Virginia freshman quarterback Mike Watford may see less playing time, but still be used in specific situations.

Coach Mike London has been shuttling Watford and sophomore Michael Rocco in and out during games. Because Watford struggled badly last week against North Carolina State (3 INTs on 4-of-16), London may utilize Rocco more while calling on Watford in specific situations instead of playing him in several series. The Cavaliers are at Miami on Thursday night.
