Rams Are Tough-Minded In Year 2 Under McElwain

FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) - Jim McElwain was more concerned with preparing the Colorado State Rams both mentally and physically for a demanding schedule than with choosing a starting quarterback when he opened his second training camp this summer.

Not only did the first scrimmage fail to distinguish a front-runner at QB, it produced a new challenger.

Freshman Nick Stevens competed 16 of 23 passes for 226 yards with two TDs and an interception to thrust himself into the mix with junior Garrett Grayson and sophomore Conner Smith, each of whom completed 10 of 16 passes with no touchdowns and an interception.

That was just fine with McElwain, who has preached that competition at all positions is the key for the Rams to get better and surpass last year's four-win season.
