Former UTC quarterback Terrell Robinson is battling for the starting quarterback spot at NAIA Faulkner University.

The Faulkner football team, coming off a season that saw it make the NAIA playoffs for the first time ever, completed its spring practice with a controlled scrimmage Tuesday night in front of hundreds of fans at Billy D. Hilyer Stadium.

The hour-long scrimmage included big plays from the Eagles' top two quarterbacks - senior transfer  Robinson and junior David Cochran. Both are in a battle to replace two-time All-American Josh Hollingsworth, now a graduate assistant on the Eagles staff. 

Faulkner opens its season Aug. 30 in Babson Park, Fla., against Webber International.

First-year Faulkner coach Brent Barker said earlier, "I could see us playing two quarterbacks at times  perhaps, since we have some guys with different skill sets. Right now we're just getting to know what we're capable of at that position."

Barker agreed to take a chance on Robinson, who admitted to marijuana use after leaving UTC for the second time.

In his freshman year, the former South Pittsburg star was the Southern Conference Freshman of the Year.

Faulkner is at Montgomery, Ala.
