Carlton Jackson beat out Chris Jacquemain for the backup quarterback job, but just barely, the ABJ's David Lee Morgan reports. The freshmen are very close, coach J.D. Brookhart said.
Meanwhile, freshman John Stec won the punter's job from sophomore Andy Hildreth.
(Some good news for Morgan: He doesn't appear to be one of the ABJ's job casualties. That's good news for Zips fans, who can be sure the team has a beat writer this season.)
