|Revell ready to lead Warhawks as starting QB|
Trey Revell has patiently waited his turn while sitting back on the quarterback depth chart at the University of Louisiana-Monroe.
Revell, a redshirt junior, will be the starting quarterback for the Warhawks this season and is hoping to help the offense soar to new heights in 2009.
Revell has made Monroe his home after a decorated prep career at Florida State Prep School in Tallahassee, Fla.
Over his prep career, Revell passed for 5,417 yards and rushed for another 1,357 yards.
Revell was a two-time all-state selection and he led his squad to a pair of district 2B championships on the field.
At 6-5, 221 pounds, Revell is not just a stronger arm in the backfield for ULM, he is also a stronger athlete to lineup at quarterback over three-year starter Kinsmon Lancaster, who graduated after last season.
Revell is used to being one of the tallest guys on the field ever since his first time playing organized football back in his elementary days in Florida.
"I began playing as a tight end," Trey Revell said. "I was probably eight years old when I started playing."
Revell was drawn to ULM because of their shotgun offense as well as the small town feel around the campus.
"It is a lot like where I grew up," Revell said. "I just felt right at home here."
Revell took a redshirt during his first year on campus at ULM. He ran some scout team action at practices and stayed in his playbook learning the ins and outs of the offensive playbook.
Following his redshirt year, Revell was the full-time backup to Lancaster and appeared in five games, even playing some at wide receiver.
Revell completed just one pass that year, but gained some valuable experience getting on the field in live game action.
He entered the North Texas contest that year after halftime for an injured Lancaster and threw for 196 yards and three touchdowns in relief.
While he adjusted to the speed of the game on the collegiate level, Revell continued to progress his knowledge of the system and the playbook.
He would make his first start near the end of last season against Middle Tennessee State.
He came in for a game-winning drive against Troy later in 2008 as well. He recorded a career-high 57-yard run during the Troy game.
This year, ULM will add a new dimension to the offense with the hurry-up, no huddle attack.
The team has been working since the spring practices on their conditioning to ensure that the new system is completely effective.
Revell has impressed coaches early in camp with his arm strength and leadership abilities that they are hopeful will lead the program to their first winning season since moving to the Football Bowl Subdivision in 1994.
Picked to finish near the bottom of the pack in the Sun Belt Conference this year, ULM opens the season at No. 2 Texas on Sept. 5 with kickoff set for 6 p.m.
