Ivy has stepped up for Jackson State this spring

JACKSON, Mississippi -- Jackson State is looking for a quarterback who can serve as the leader of the team and be the face of the program.

LaMontiez Ivy has held that position down for the better part of the past two seasons, but Tigers coach Tony Hughes said there's a competition for the job this spring.

The knowledge Ivy gained from all those starts has paid off through through JSU's first four spring practices.

"The way he has taken command and the way he has competed (has been) really pleasing" Hughes said Tuesday. "Like we said, competition is open, and it is, but at the same time his experience has really shown, and he could really be a good football player, and we need him to step up and this spring he has stepped up."

Ivy is competing with Jarin Morikawa, Jordan Williams and Brent Lyles. Ivy, who was All-SWAC second team in 2014, and Morikawa both started multiple games last season, while Williams appeared in three.
