ex-Panther and our 2104 starting QB Chad Voytik is Eastern Kentucky bound. The Football Championship Series (FCS) “Colonels” play in the Ohio Valley Conference and, if you care to, you can follow Mr. Voytik’s progress on the internet via their “Live Audio” links at this website.
He’s not going to have an easy time of it there if he wants to grab that starting position right off the bat but it appears to be a better situation for him to get playing time than had he stayed at Pitt.
I wrote two weeks ago about the Colonels (Colonel = Eagle; get it?) and their returning starting QB Bennie Coney who has played well there. However, it wasn’t such great play that he can’t be sat down (we heard that before on here) , but also isn’t a situation where Voytik is going to waltz in and automatically get the starting job handed to him as if there was no incumbent in that position at all.
Coney had decent stats at E. Kentucky with 225 completions in 367 attempts (61.3%) for 2471 yards. He also had a very good 23 TDs to 8 INTs ratio that showed he didn’t turn the ball over a lot. That’s about a 10:1 Completion to TD ratio and is very good. His overall QB rating was 134 and that’s OK too.
