NCAA: Purdue Boilermakers Name Rob Henry Starting QB

Aug 18 2013, 11:24pm CDT | by

Purdue Boilermakers head coach Darrell Hazell named Rob Henry as the starting quarterback on Sunday.

Rob Henry will be the starting quarterback of the Purdue Boilermakers in the 2013 NCAA season. 

Mike Carmin of the Indianapolis Star, says Henry was given the nod to start because of his experience as he was a six-game starter three years ago. The two other quarterbacks in Purdue's rotation - redshirt freshman Austin Appleby and freshman Danny Etling - haven't taken a single snap in NCAA competition. 

In the 11 games he played in 2010, Henry led Purdue in rushing and passing. He was 86-for-162 for 996 yards to go along with eight touchdowns and seven interceptions. He also rushed for 547 yards. 

Boilermakers head coach Darrell Hazell said Henry's accuracy and potential to be an ambassador of the team made the decision easier.  

"His poise was evident from Day 1. He's had a phenomenal camp. He's been very accurate.

"He's going to be a great ambassador for this football team."

Henry is excited about the opportunity but he's also looking at the bigger picture, per Carmin. 

"It feels good. I'm just excited about this season and I'm excited about the offense we're going to run and the guys we're going to get the ball to. I'm excited to be the starting quarterback but mroe excited to see where this year goes for the team." 

This is a welcome development for Henry, who tore his ACL a week before the 2011 NCAA season kicked off, forcing him to sit it out entirely.

In 2012, he had 216 passing yards for three touchdowns in 11 games while playing behind seniors Caleb TerBush and Robert Marve.
