Snyder leads battle to replace ScheiblePosted Saturday, March 31, 2012, at 1:49 PM
The battle to replace SEMO record-setting quarterback Matt Scheible begins in earnest Monday when the Redhawks open spring workouts.
While the competition will certainly carry over into fall practice, it will be an upset if Kyle Snyder doesn't open the season as the Redhawks' starter.
That is even more of a probability since Trey Lewis is listed as a wide receiver entering spring drills.
Snyder is a transfer from FBS program Ohio University, where he compiled solid statistics during limited action as a redshirt freshman reserve last year.
Lewis is the only other member of SEMO's roster who has played quarterback in a college game. The Sikeston native saw limited action as a true freshman last season after winning the job to back up Scheible.
Others slated to take snaps at quarterback this spring, along with Snyder, are Tyler Peoples, Zach Levy and Scott Lathrop.
Peoples, who figures to be Snyder's primary challenger if Lewis stays at wide receiver, has been in the program two years. He redshirted as a freshman in 2010.
Levy has been in the program three years while Lathrop redshirted as a freshman last season.
SEMO kicks off the campaign Aug. 30 at FBS program Central Michigan. The Chippewas went 3-9 overall and 2-6 in the Mid-American Conference last year.
