STORRS, Conn. — The starting quarterback for the UConn Huskies football team will be senior Joe Fagnano, head coach Jim Mora announced Wednesday.
“It was a hard-fought competition throughout camp between everyone in the quarterback room," Mora said. "Every one of those guys came in every single day and put in a tremendous amount of hard work and effort into winning the job. Their commitment to this program was evident all camp. Joe stood out during the final weeks of camp and we feel like he puts in the best position to be successful heading into the season.”
Fagnano, of Williamsport, Pa., transferred to UConn last spring from the University of Maine, playing for the Black Bears for three seasons. He will have two years of eligibility remaining.
The season opener for the Huskies will be at home on Thursday, Aug. 31 against N.C. State.
