Waters heads onto the field for the first series. Sams replaces him. Waters goes back out when the Wildcats need a spark. Sams does the same thing.

The Kansas State Wildcats’ two-quarterback system of Jake Waters and Daniel Sams is the biggest storyline for Bill Snyder’s team this year. With one specializing in rushing and the other focused on airing it out, Sams and Waters are putting a fresh spin on the role of quarterback within a team.

MANHATTAN, Kan. -- Feisty? You dig feisty? Jake Waters once got a defender so angry that the guy ran over, hauled off and punched him after the play was over.
True story. It's November 2007, during the Iowa Class 1-A state football semifinals, and the new starting quarterback at Kansas State is a 5-foot-10 sophomore signal-caller with Council Bluffs St. Albert High School, running...
