Junior Quinn Cook and freshman Noah Wesensky have emerged as the top two potential replacements for the graduated James Knapke as the Bishop Luers quarterback.
Cook got the start in the scrimmage against Bishop Dwenger at Saint Francis on Friday, with Wesensky following him.
Senior Kyle Bliss and sophomore Travis Eckert also played in the first 15-play series against the Saints.
Knapke started for three years for the Knights, each one of them ending in a state championship.
"I had a lot of fun with it because it was my first varsity start," Cook said.
Cook said he thinks he has earned the right to be the starter next week against Snider.
"I think so, but that's obviously left up to our coaching staff," he said. "They said a big thing is going to come down to leadership and managing an offense."
Cook had to watch across the sidelines and see two fellow juniors, Mike Fiacable and John Kelty, were on crutches after suffering injuries in the last week, Fiacable last Friday and Kelty in the scrimmage.
Fiacable is out for the season with an ACL injury, while Kelty's status is unknown after an apparent ankle injury.
"I feel real bad for those guys," Cook said. "They are both great players. I have seen a lot of (Fiacable) since I have been playing against him since fifth grade. I am praying for them and best luck to them."
