CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WAVY) – Not much of a surprise in Charlottesville, but University of Virginia head football coach Mike London announced on Monday his number one quarterback will be redshirt-sophomore Greyson Lambert heading into the summer.

Lambert not only had the best throwing day in the team’s annual Spring game (18-of-31 for 220 yards, 2 touchdowns, 2 interceptions), the 6-foot-5 inch gunslinger also established himself as a team leader. Lambert’s teammates voted him one of four team captains over Spring practice, and he’s the only underclassman voted into to that role.

Lambert won the job over redshirt-Junior David Watford (Hampton High School), who started all 12 games for the Cavaliers last season. While Watford showed flashes at times, he struggled with consistency throwing the ball, and lead the ACC with 15 interceptions.
