Jeff Tedford Names Zach Maynard Starting QB

70

(BERKELEY) - Cal head coach Jeff Tedford announced Saturday that junior Zach Maynard will be the team's starting quarterback heading into the 2011 season. The Golden Bears open training camp on Aug. 6, with the 2011 season opener vs. Fresno State at Candlestick Park in San Francisco scheduled four weeks later on Sept. 3. "Zach showed a tremendous amount of upside during spring practice and is the quarterback that gives us the best opportunity to win football games," said Tedford. "He has the ability to both throw and run the ball effectively, giving us another dimension at that position that we haven't had in a while." "I'm excited and honored to have been named the starting quarterback at Cal," said Maynard. "I enjoyed competing for the job with some excellent competitors during spring practice and will continue to work hard to keep the starting role. I have an excellent opportunity to help lead this football team and plan to take full advantage of it." Maynard accepted a scholarship offer from Cal in February of 2010 and sat out last season to become eligible after transferring from Buffalo. He has two years of eligibility remaining at Cal. Congrats Zach! Go Bears!
