Texas QB Ash feels like leader of ‘Horns offense



AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Sophomore quarterback David Ash says he feels like the leader of the Texas offense.

Coach Mack Brown, however, still refuses to publicly declare a starter and says he’s confident that either Ash or junior Case McCoy could lead the Longhorns next season.

If Sunday’s spring scrimmage showed anything, it’s that Ash has earned the right to call himself the starter, but McCoy still could make a serious challenge for the job if he can eliminate costly turnovers.

Ash threw only a handful of passes — one for a touchdown — in directing three early scoring drives. McCoy was 9 of 15 for 139 yards with a touchdown, but also threw two interceptions in the end zone as Texas wrapped up spring drills.
