Earl Takes The Reins

August 14, 2014, 10:44 PM

Earl Takes The Reins
VERMILLION, SD -

After taking over as starter in the third game last season, Coyote Junior Kevin Earl will return at quarterback for the University of South Dakota. The signal-caller passed for 1,900 yards and nine touchdowns last season, and is looking to build off a solid 2013 campaign.
 
"Experience pays off huge. The game starts to slow down a lot more. You start to feel more comfortable in the pocket. Feel more comfortable in front of fans, and when stuff goes....when the crowd gets loud, experience is what you have to fall back on," quarterback Kevin Earl said.

Earl has the benefit of learning from one of the best coaches in the region. Offensive Coordinator Wesley Beschorner was a first-team All-American with the Yotes in 2005, and has watched Earl progress in last year-and-a-half.

"Kevin came in last year, you know, four games in, and we have had to change some things based off what  he does well. From the Spring until the fall, a lot of good stuff. I've seen him grow and develop in what he's done," offensive coordinator Wesley Beschorner said.

Equally important will be Earl's arsenal of weapons on the offensive side of the ball. At running back, USD has four running backs capable of breaking off a big run. At wideout, Earl will team up with last year's second-leading receiver Riley Donovan to form a potentially dangerous passing attack.

"It's awesome. He sees thing and I see thing, so pretty much every time we come off the field we are talking to each other. Like, hey that post, what was the safety doing. So it's good to be able to ask a guy like that question, because he knows just as much as I do," Earl said.

Now the top man under center, Kevin Earl is approaching this season poised and prepared for leadership.Ver  His maturity, approach and skill level continue to improve, and his head coach is taking notice. 

"Kevin Earl has a year of experience under his belt and he was the second leading passer in the conference last year.  He took every snap in spring and has had a great fall. He can throw the football in many places that I haven't seen other quarterbacks put it," head coach Joe Glenn said.
