Garza gets the call for Javelinas at quarterback

Senior will start next Thursday's opener

By George Vondracek

KINGSVILLE -- The chase to determine who will be standing under center for Texas A&M-Kingsville in next Thursday's season opener at North Dakota is finished, and the reigns go to Brownsville's Billy Garza.

The Illinois transfer got the nod Thursday from second-year A&M-Kingsville coach Bo Atterberry prior to the Javelinas' final one-hour controlled scrimmage.

"He showed a lot of composure and poise. He took what the defense was giving him. That was kind of the deciding factor," Atterberry said of Garza, a senior. "You know, it was tough. We've got some good ones. There's not enough balls to go around, so we'll start with that and see how it goes."
