New Minutemen Starting Quarterback: Blake Frohnapfel

As far as predictions go, Frohnapfel will have a decent season. Conservatively, he should toss 14 touchdowns while throwing eight picks. In total, he will throw for about 2,000 yards. Although this might not seem like a lot, Frohnapfel is also great on his feet. He is not Jordan Lynch, but Frohnapfel is effective and could run for about another 500 yards primarily running in read-options and close yardage situations. He will also help his running backs gain more tricking defenses with the option.

The UMass Minutemen are lucky to have Blake Frohnapfel. Chosen by coach Mark Whipple himself, Frohnapfel has the chance to have a big year this year and is the right choice for starting quarterback. He is an upgrade over AJ Doyle and gives the Minutemen their best chance of winning on a weekly basis.
