Corp named Richmond's starting QB
Richmond, VA (Sports Network) - Southern California transfer Aaron Corp has been named the University of Richmond's starting quarterback for the team's Sept. 4 season opener at the University of Virginia.
Corp, a redshirt junior, earned the starting spot over redshirt sophomore John Laub. The 6-foot-3, 200-pound native of Villa Park, Calif., transferred to Richmond in January after spending last season as the No. 3 quarterback at Southern Cal. He started one game, a loss at Washington.
"We have decided that Aaron Corp will be our starting quarterback for the Virginia game," Richmond first-year coach Latrell Scott said. "It was a tremendous competition, with both Aaron and John Laub playing extremely well in preseason camp. But we have made the decision Aaron will start the season opener."
Richmond, which finished 11-2 last season, will open its season against its head coach of the past two seasons, Mike London, who was hired at Virginia last December. London led Richmond to the 2008 Football Championship Subdivision national championship.
