Chattanooga-(WDEF) Heading into his junior season as the Mocs starting quarterback, Jacob Huesman feels like a savvy veteran.
"I feel a lot better about knowledge of the offense. To the point where I can answer the questions these younger kids may have."
  Huesman's comfort factor at quarterback hasn't gone  unnoticed.
Wofford coach Mike Ayers called him a cool cat last season.
"I try not to get too emotional either high or low. I think that's probably what he meant. Try to keep a level head no matter what's happening."
   Huesman is the reigning SoCon offensive player of the year after rushing for nearly 900-yards last year, and throwing for over 1,600 yards.
Huesman completed nearly 70-percent of his passes, but he hopes that number grows.
"I miss a throw every once and awhile, and I don't want to miss any throws. I want to make them all..even the tough ones."
Added head coach Russ Huesman,"Throwing and catching the deep ball. We missed a bunch last year. Some big shots down the field. I've seen a lot of improvement where we are giving the receivers a chance to make a play. That was a big emphasis for Jacob for sure."
  Maybe a few more completions might help UTC reach the playoffs.
Said Jacob,"That's the next hurdle we've got to take. Got to jump over and make the playoffs. That's a pretty big step. That's going to be a real big step for the program once we can get that done. Hopefully it will be this year."
  Tonight, Huesman is excited to be collecting a SoCon championship ring at the Mocs Blue-Gold game.
"For a lot of these guys, myself included, it's our first ring, so it's pretty special."
