Trojans move forward with Hampton at the helm

By Matt Nascone, The Messenger

Jamie Hampton came out of the spring as the starting quarterback for the Troy Trojans ahead of Tanner Jones and Levi Brown. Hampton entered fall camp as QB1, but he knows he can still lose his job.

"Everyone is telling me that I am the starter, but I am not the starter yet," Hampton said. "I may have earned the job through the spring, but the spring is nothing like real games and I am going to work hard to keep the job through camp."

Troy offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Neal Brown said the competition for the chance to take over for departed senior Omar Haugabook was great for Troy.

"We had a great competition and through that competition we found out that all three of those guys can play in this offense," Brown said. "I now know that I have three guys here that can win in this conference."
