PLAYERS: Blake BellBob Stoops
TEAMS:
 Sooner quarterback derby is set to become a full-blown competition that will put the winner in charge of a high-octane offense that is incorporating the zone read into its offensive mix and the expectations are very high. Many think it is Blake Bell’s job to lose. He has been a short-yardage touchdown scoring machine over the last two years and looked great during the Spring. This NewsOK article focuses on his fiery personality and how successful he has been in the past, when almost willing his teams to win. In fact, the article author states: “Blake Bell’s family and those who knew him in high school say he’s always been an emotional player. And those who know him best say he’s invigorated by having to earn the job through a lengthy, tough quarterback derby.” This fall’s quarterback competition will be a highly observed situation and everyone will be expressing their opinion on who should start, but for those willing to bet against Bell, you might want to factor in Blakes fiery personality and strong will, before you place you bets. He has a pretty amazing track record. From The Oklahoman Photo by: Nate Billings
