The Stanford football team has named its starting quarterback.
This week, head coach David Shaw announced that senior Keller Chryst will enter the season as the starter when the team faces off against Rice in Australia.
Everett Cook of The San Francisco Chronicle reported the news.
Chryst earned the job after spending the offseason recovering from a torn ACL suffered in Stanford’s bowl game.
According to Shaw, there is no concern over Chryst’s health.
“We feel pretty good about that,” Shaw said. “He’s shown us no signs of any issues at all physically, there are no limitations on him right now, so we feel good about him getting ready to go play in Sydney.”
That’s an impressive recovery from the quarterback and now he is focused on the Aug. 26 season opener.
“I’m still shaking some rust, but that should come off soon,” Chryst said.
Last season, Chryst threw for 905 yards, 10 touchdowns and two interceptions.
