Guy Cameron Billups flicked passes to fellow Chargers on Oxford’s Bobby Holcomb Field on Tuesday night just as he has done thousands of times before.
The only difference — and it was a big one — was that Billups wasn’t preparing for the Chargers’ upcoming season.
Instead, the future Rice Owl was working with quarterbacks William Elliott and Parker Adamson, talking technique among other things.
With no obvious heir apparent to Billups, the two rising juniors appear to be on equal footing heading into the 2011 season.
During Tuesday’s 7-on-7 scrimmage with Tunica Academy and New Albany, Elliott and Adamson split possessions leading the offense down the field.
Likewise, each had their moments where they looked capable of leading the Chargers when August rolls around. (June 15, 2011, Page 8)
