Eagles will turn to Cummings to jump-start offense


La Crosse, WISCONSIN (WXOW)  The Eagles offense ranks last in the WIAC and they haven't scored an offensive touchdown since the first quarter of the Missouri S&T game 11 quarters ago.

So it comes as no surprise that UW-La Crosse is making a change at quarterback.

Trent Cummings replaces Houston native Andy sires.

Cummings is a sophomore transfer from Minnesota State-Mankato.

He played some last week against UW-Oshkosh.

The Eagles hoping a new face under center will give the offense a spark it so desperately needs.

"Basically, Trent's skill set matches more of what we want to do on offense right now in terms of protecting the quarterback and being able to execute. So, it wasn't so much what Andy was doing as much as Trent's skill set matches more what we're able to do," said head coach Joel Dettwiler.

"I'm pretty excited about it. We've had a pretty good week of practice. It's my first college start here. So I'm looking forward to it. Guys have been working pretty hard this week and I'm really excited," Cummings said.

The Eagles travel to Menomonie to play UW-Stout this Saturday.
