Duke's other talent

Reno, NV ( - There has been an ongoing joke between a pair of Wolf Pack Defensive Backs, Duke Williams and Khalid Wooten... well more like a friendly competition. The question the two always argue over: Who is the better quarterback?

Both guys did in fact play both sides of the ball in high school, DB and QB. And well, before Duke leaves to Miami, Florida to start training for the NFL, he wanted to take the time to clear the air once and for all.

Duke told me, "Okay, Khalid has a better arm than me, but I have the intangibles, stuff that coach can't teach you, just in the pocket. He is just a drop back quarterback, he has one read, and he'd just get sacked or something." That sounds like a challenge to me.

I asked him to show me his arm strength, and he agreed. At Mackay Stadium, Duke played quarterback while I lined up as wide receiver. During the first two tries, I'm pretty sure he thought I was Brandon Wimberly or Richy Turner that clearly was not the case.
