St. Cloud State head football coach Scott Underwood has announced his starting quarterback for SCSU’s season opener will be redshirt freshman Philip Klaphake. The Princeton, Minnesota native was in a close battle with sophomore Brad Meade but it was Klaphake who got the job.
The 6’1” 188-pounder holds the Princeton High School record for passing yards and was a two time All-State Honorable Mention. The versatile Klaphake also lettered in basketball, baseball and track in his high school career.
The Huskies are looking for someone to fill the shoes of departed quarterback Mitch Watkins. In the 2009 season, Watkins passed for 1,623 yards and 17 touchdowns while throwing just five interceptions.
Klaphake and the Huskies open up their 2010 season this Saturday, September 4th at Augustana. Kickoff is set for 1 o’clock. Make sure to keep up with all of the latest Husky sports news by following KVSC Sports on twitter at twitter.com/kvscsports.
