Normal, Ala. (WHNT) For the second straight year, James Spady is looking for a quarterback to run his pistol offense. Jaymason Lee graduated leaving a hold at the most important position on the field as Spring begins.

"We're kind of back to the drawing board, Spady said just minutes before starting the first of 15 practices this April. "We have to establish a starting quarterback who will lead this team. I think my philosophy is that our offense is going to set our defense up for success and the defense will be a catalyst for us to winning a championship. We've got to find that quarterback again, and we have some pretty good prospects. The competition will be fast and furious and looking forward to getting it going."

Three quarterbacks return from the 2014 roster. Damion May and Cody Lui-Yuen will battle for the spot as redshirt freshman while transfer De'angelo Ballard should also make some noise in the competition.
