Golson emerges from pack at Notre Dame


Everett Golson’s first season at Notre Dame was spent running the Irish’s scout team. It was a good learning experience and a chance to mature in the whirlwind of big-time football. “It’s time to get back to what I know I can do,” Golson (pictured right) said Wednesday. What he knows how to do is move the football, either with his legs or with a strong arm that saw him throw for more than 11,000 yards and 151 TDs as a prep star in Myrtle Beach, S.C. Now he’s in the running to be the Irish’s starter and has emerged from a four-quarterback derby as a front runner, along with Andrew Hendrix. Coach Brian Kelly said the two QBs are getting an even amount of reps in practice, even though Golson got more work with the first team Wednesday. – AP
