WTAMU names starting quarterback prior to final scrimmage


The starter taking the snaps at West Texas A&M has been named, and he's yet to take any at the college level.

Justin Houghtaling, a red-shirt freshman from Artesia, New Mexico was named the starter for the Buffs by head coach Hunter Hughes following their scrimmage last Saturday. Hughes said his work in the off season and adjustment to the new offense put him ahead of his competitors. Red-shirt freshman Skyler Bonneau was injured in the first scrimmage and should return later in the year. Ben Arbuckle played in seven games in 2016, starting five of them. Gavin Pruett also red-shirted in 2016, and will provide additional QB depth for the Buffs.
