St. Stanislaus alum Myles Brennan fighting to be LSU quarterback
If any college quarterback ever waited his turn, it’s St. Stanislaus alum Myles Brennan. After signing with LSU in 2017, he didn’t start his first career game until the 2020 season opener, only to have to win the job all over again in 2021.
The former Rock-A-Chaw is locked into a position battle, this time with Max Johnson, son of former NFL QB Brad Johnson.
As the Tigers get ready to break for fall camp, Brennan certainly has experience on his side as well as a clean bill of health after missing LSU’s final seven games due to an extremely rare abdominal tear that reportedly almost led to him having a surgical procedure named after him.
Now that he’s back to 100 percent, he can prove his three-game stretch of more than 1,100 yards, 11 touchdowns, and just three picks was no fluke. Head Coach Ed Orgeron said, “Either one would be a great choice. Looking at the work that Myles Brennan did and the way he started the season and the success that he had. There’s an open competition. It’s tick and tack. One day I can see Myles doing better. One day I see Max doing better. No one has pulled ahead of the other one. In my opinion, they’re starting dead even going into camp. It’s going to be a tight race.”
Johnson led the Tigers to big wins over Florida and Ole Miss in their final two games of the 2020 season.
