Brian Lewerke isn’t just effective with his arm, he’s pretty darn good with his legs, too.
Michigan State’s sophomore quarterback showed off his versatility in the first half against Maryland, on a cold, wet and miserable afternoon in East Lansing. And his nifty footwork resulted in a Spartans touchdown.
On a third down play, Lewerke took a snap while lined up in the shotgun, tucked the football away and was able to shake a potential tackler in the backfield. After shedding that defender, the Spartan quarterback bolted for the end zone without a single Terrapin in sight.
