Are three or four too many?
The Hampton Pirates will soon find out.
The Pirates will begin full-scale preparation for the 2016 season with a glut of viable candidates — four at last count — at the most crucial position on the field. Hampton coach Connell Maynor said he likely will need to observe all of preseason practice plus early-season games against Old Dominion and William & Mary before choosing one as his go-to guy.
“We have three or four capable guys who can go out and win football games for us,” Maynor said at last month’s MEAC media day in Norfolk. “We’re going to let them battle it out. We’ll see who can lead and who can move the chains.”
