For Kansas State, two QBs are better than one
By WVUA-23 Sports Reporter Alex Boothe
The term “quarterback competition” is not taboo inside of the Kansas State football program.
“You don’t really think about how other people are seeing things. Adrian (Martinez) comes in with a different perspective,” Kansas State quarterback Will Power said.
Power replaced Kansas State starting quarterback Adrian Martinez after Martinez suffered an injury in November. Power has started the past six games for the Wildcats but Martinez is expected to be healthy when KSU plays Alabama in the Sugar Bowl. Kansas State Head Coach Chris Klieman says don’t be surprised if both quarterbacks play against the Crimson Tide.
Power says two quarterbacks is a positive because he and Martinez bring different strengths that benefit the offense. Power offered this example of the way the two players study film and see different ways to attack the opposing defense:
“I’m saying versus this coverage we like this, and he says well what about this twist,” Power said. “I’m lucky we can call each other friends for a long time.”
Kansas State has plenty of storylines heading into Saturday’s game with Alabama, but the one they are adamant about is capping off the season with the programs first Sugar Bowl victory in program history.
