    He has gotten better every week.

    His first game his completion percentage was under 50%. (1 reason for being 3rd string coming out of camp.)

    This past week his completion percentage was over 70%.

    Lots of practice reps since the original #1 and # 2 were hurt.


    Putting up numbers comparable to former ROCK QB Nigel Barksdale.

    He was splitting time with the back up for Valdosta Adam #12 in 2016. He severely injured his shoulder and had to miss all 2017. He came back ready to go in spring and had the better spring than the current starter but head coach was sold on new guy so he told Roland he would be #2. The OC at slippery rock is Rolands old QB coach for Valdosta and told Roland he could compete for starting job there and he asked for a release and left. Rest is history
