Practice begins today for Joe Morrison’s second Gamecock squad. A battle is shaping up for the starting QB position among incumbent starter Allen Mitchell, and three challengers, freshman Kevin White, junior Jim Desmond, and JUCO transfer Mike Hold.
The season turned out well for the Gamecocks in 1984, with a 10-2 record, and a trip to the Gator Bowl. They reached as high as No. 2 in the polls as well.
Mitchell and Hold split duties for most of the season, with Hold taking over full-time by season’s end.
