METAMORA, Ill. — He’s patiently waited for his turn.
Now Vinny Querciagrossa gets his shot. The senior is Metamora’s starting quarterback heading into the season opener next week.
Quierciagrossa was the backup to three-year starter Thomas Hall, who graduated in May.
“I learned a lot from him, all kinds of stuff from footwork to everything. He’s a really good guy to be around,” Querciagrossa said of Hall. “I think it made me a better quarterback sitting behind him.”
Querciagrossa and the Redbirds open the season Aug. 30 at home against Champaign Central.
