UAB names Isabelle starting QB for opener

By  | 

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - David Isabelle is UAB's starting quarterback. UAB coach Neil Callaway said Monday that the sophomore will start in the season opener against Florida Atlantic on Sept. 2.

Isabelle and junior Bryan Ellis had been battling to replace Joe
Webb during preseason camp. Callaway says both will see significant
action during the season.

He says he feels comfortable with both players. But he says
Isabelle's athleticism separated him.

Isabelle played in all 12 games behind Webb last season but mostly was used as a runner.
