About 50 Cape football hopefuls for 2013 got a five-day dose of Wing-T terminology and plays July 22-26 at  Cape's Wing-T camp held at Legends Stadium.

Personnel dispersed into  positions. It became pretty apparent that this is going to be a talented Cape team blessed with strength and speed. There are athletes who can run it to the outside and bust it up on the inside. The biggest question mark is the quarterback position.

"Shame on us if we can't get the ball to people like Andrew Grau and D.D. Gooch and Jason Wiberg," coach Bill Collick said.

Quarterbacks Diaz Nardo and Cody Dmiterchik were lost to graduation. There will be at least a half dozen QB hopefuls on the first day of practice Thursday, Aug. 15. The winner of the job must be able to run and throw, read some coverages and work closely with offensive coordinator Herky Billings in his helmet. Billings, with a wealth of college experience, is considered one of the best Wing-T brains in the country.

Cape opens the season with two road games playing at Milford Friday, Sept. 6, and Archbishop Spalding Friday, Sept. 13.
