GREENSBORO — Kwashaun Quick, a sophomore who played in 10 games with four starts last year, was A&T’s quarterback in the football victory over Appalachian State on Saturday night.
But senior Lewis Kindle was not eligible to play, sitting out a one-game suspension because of a drunken-driving arrest in July.
Will Quick keep the starting job against Elon on Saturday night?
“I don’t know. We’ll see,” A&T coach Rod Broadway said today. “I tell people this all the time: Our basic policy is you have to earn the right to play every week. You don’t inherit it and nothing is guaranteed. He’s got to practice and do the things we want to see him do in the course of practice this week. Then we’ll see.”
Kindle and Quick will share reps with the first team in practice this week, the coach said.
“We’re going to give Lewis an opportunity to compete for our starting quarterback position,” Broadway said.
Coach Rod Broadway on Aggies' win: 'A lot of mistakes'

GREENSBORO – N.C. A&T’s football team went back to work today, studying film from the Aggies' stunning 24-21 victory at then-No. 12 Appalachian State.
The film wasn’t all pretty, but the mistakes caught on video could be helpful.
Those mistakes give Coach Rod Broadway something to harp on this week in practice, something to bring his Aggies down off the mountain as they get ready for Saturday’s home opener against Elon.
“Of course the next one is dangerous,” Broadway said. “Our guys get to hear about how well they played at App and how good they are all week. When it comes to football, I hope they’re not listening to their friends or their professors or their girlfriends or their mama or their daddy or anyone who’s going to tell them how good they are right now. I hope they listen to me.”
1. N.C. A&T’s hiring of Rod Broadway looks brilliant. He ended the long run of losing seasons last year, and now he’s given A&T hope for the future. The protégé of Steve Spurrier is, quite frankly, one of the best college football coaches in America.
2. Dominic Frescura might be one of the best punters in America. The freshman from California was as important to the Aggies as any player on the roster against Appalachian State. He might have been the difference in a game that swung on field position.
3. Despite recruiting restrictions, the Aggies have athletes. The skill players are fast and elusive. The offensive line is big and mobile. And the defense that was so effective a year ago is as good as advertised. A&T might be poised for a big season.
