Pack elevate true freshman Kaymen Cureton to starting quarterback


New Nevada Head Coach Jay Norvell has indicated several times since fall camp that the Pack would use several quarterbacks in 2017. He hasn't backed off on that statement.

Following two games from JuniorTy Gangi, who beat out Alabama-transfer David Cornwell for the starting job heading into the season, and a one-play appearance from Griffin Dahn on a failed fourth-down run play at Northwestern, the Pack will now turn to true freshman Kaymen Cureton.

Cureton was regarded as a three-star recruit coming our of high school in Los Angeles, with offers from college football powers Oregon and Alabama. Those programs saw Cureton as an athlete and not necessarily as a quarterback, but the Pack were among schools that were committed to him as a signal caller.

Cureton comes from an athletic family - he is the nephew of the late MLB Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn.

News 4 caught up with new "Voice of the Wolf Pack" John Ramey who offers his take on the change and what Cureton brings to the table.
