Sonny Dykes says Cal starting QB Davis Webb holds same work ethic as Jared Goff

Davis Webb was introduced to the media yesterday as the new starting quarterback for Cal, ending a quick transfer turnaround from his time at Texas Tech. Time to learn more about Webb’s journey to Cal.

Webb had a solid freshman season at Texas Tech before injuries and quarterback battles forced him into a non-permanent starting role. Here’s what Webb and head coach Sonny Dykes had to say about the announcement:

  • Dykes says Webb does really well at throwing to a spot rather than to a receiver, which is precisely what you’d expect from a well-trained Air Raid quarterback.
  • Dykes also is a big fan of Webb’s arm, although he was quick to point out there’s more to being a quarterback than having a big arm.
  • Webb spoke a little bit about how his father influenced him to become the quarterback he is.
  • Webb has been a film junkie since he arrived at Cal, watching spring practice and scrimmages at least three times over, and has been at the office every day by 6:30 or 7.
  • Webb was also extremely complementary of his main competition for the starting quarterback job, including Chase Forrest and Ross Bowers.

Cal fans, your thoughts on Webb winning the job?
