We have a starting quarterback. After a day off Wednesday, then practice Thursday, the news broke this morning that Jared Goff has been named the starter. Goff edged out Zach Kline and Austin Hinder, in a "fiercely-contested competition," according to Coach Dykes. Sonny added:

"We feel that right now Jared Goff gives us the best chance to be successful as a team, but we are very fortunate to have three outstanding quarterbacks we feel we can be successful with."

Fall camp continues today - it's Day 11 of #BearRaid13. Follow along with Nam, Avi, and others, who will be covering practice from the stands. Join the conversation in the comments below - especially if you're able to attend practice!
