  Draft Scout by Conference

  Troy head coach Chip Lindsey announced Thursday that Taylor Powell will be the Trojans' starting quarterback heading into the team's season opener against Southern next weekend. The announcement ends a QB battle between Powell and Gunnar Watson, which began in the spring. "Both guys competed extremely hard and both of them improved a great deal," Lindsey said. "Anytime you have competition like that, it makes everyone better. This year we're going into the season with the luxury of having two guys that have played college football and that's always a plus. At the end of the day, it's a competition and we have to go with one guy. We feel like Taylor is going to give us the best opportunity to win as a football team."

Powell, a junior on the field, joined the Trojans in January after transferring into the program from Missouri. A former Mr. Football in the state of Arkansas, Powell started one game in his career - at Georgia - for the Tigers and saw action in 12 total contests. He sat out the 2020 season due to COVID-19 concerns and graduated from Missouri in three years. He led Fayetteville High School to a pair of Arkansas 7A state titles (2015, 2016) and threw for 3,473 yards and 44 touchdowns as a senior. He ranks fifth in Arkansas prep history with 10,431 career passing yards and eighth with 113 touchdown passes. - Troy Messenger
