Northwest Sticking with Adams as Starting QB

Northwest Sticking with Adams as Starting QB

Bearcat senior Trevor Adams will remain as the starting quarterback despite a rough outing Saturday.
(MARYVILLE, Mo.) When Northwest ran into its first road block of the season, backup quarterback Brady Bolles broke through, and led the Bearcats to victory over Central Missouri.

But his performance isn't enough to win the starting job.

Adam Dorrel said Tuesday afternoon that senior Trevor Adams will remain on top of the Northwest depth chart.

"I'm not going to give up on a kid because he has one bad day."

Down 17-0 in the first quarter Saturday, Dorrel turned to Bolles to lead the comeback. The sophomore finished with 191 pass yards, 82 rush yards and three total touchdowns.

Adam was 2-6 passing for five yards and a touchdown in four drives, but his head coach says the lack of production is not all on him.

"He's not the only reason we were struggling offensively in the first quarter, but we believe in him, I believe in him, and our kids believe in him," Dorrel said.

Northwest plays its first road game Saturday when they travel to Fort Hays State.
