Quarterback T.J. Millweard trying to secure backup spot

This is the Daily News’ HTML5-compatible media player.

Brett Hundley is a lock to start at quarterback, but there’s no clear-cut option behind him. On Thursday, redshirt freshman T.J. Millweard made his pitch for the spot, making a number of sharp throws during scrimmage situations. His most impressive moment was a long touchdown to Tyler Scott, uncorked from near midfield.

“We kind of saw that man one on one out there,” Millweard said. “We had the perfect play call. I just kind of did a play fake, got back, and let it rip.”

    I always feel bad for guys like TJ. He’s obviously a good guy and he is talented. If he were backing Prince, he’d have had a shot at the limelight. But behind Hundley, absent a horrific injury, he won’t get a shot.

      Hundley will be gone after a year or two. Good to have depth and a more mature tj playing then
