Irish quarterback has impressed Tide coach

Sunday, January 06, 2013 01:28 pm
Each day this week, The News-Sentinel will profilea Notre Dame football player leading up to the BCS National Championship game in Miami on Monday.

WHAT: No. 5 sophomore quarterback

WHERE: Myrtle Beach High School (Myrtle Beach, SC)

2012 STATS: Played in 11 games (starting 10) and completed 58.9 percent of his passes for 2,135 yards. He registered 11 touchdowns threw the air, plus ran for five more. He also only threw five interceptions.

THE SKINNY: Showed remarkable poise for a first-year quarterback on a national stage. He endured being benched a number of times and always seemed to bounce back better, and he often performed at the highest level in the most highly-pressured situations. Most importantly, he took care of the football, which was the primary focus for the Irish coaching staff entering this season.

ALABAMA HEAD COACH NICK SABAN SAYS: “(Golson) has made tremendous progress throughout the year and is a very effective player, a much better passer than is publicly perceived and given credit for, and certainly a very athletic guy who can extend plays and make plays with his feet. I think that's one of the things, because their ability to run the ball and their ability to do that, that create lots of issues and problems... So that's a real challenge for our defense."
