The list of quarterbacks to start Purdue season openers over the years is impressive. From Bob Griese, Len Dawson, Mark Herman, Jim Everett, Drew Brees, Kyle Orton and now Terre Haute’s own Danny Etling.
Monday Boilermakers head coach Darrell Hazell named the sophomore the teams starting QB for the Boilers season opener August 30th against Western Michigan.
Last season as a true freshman Etling played in eight games, starting the final seven. The former Terre Haute South Brave won the competition over fellow sophomore QB Austin Appleby.
