Former Newbury Park Star To Start At QB Against Bama

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — Senior Jordan La Secla will open the season as the starting quarterback for San Jose State.

Coach Mike MacIntyre announced Wednesday that La Secla will start the season opener at No. 1 Alabama on Sept. 4. La Secla started eight games for the Spartans last season.

La Secla was battling with junior college transfer Matt Faulkner and redshirt freshman Dasmen Stewart for the starting job.

La Secla played 12 games last season. He completed 59.9 percent of his passes for 1,926 yards and 10 touchdowns with 11 interceptions.
