DAYTONA BEACH - Bethune-Cookman University starting quarterback position is up for grabs this spring
football season and former Jackets standout Jabari Dunham is competing for the starting signal caller
position. Dunham a redshirt senior will have equal opportunity to earn the starting job as last year's starter
Larry Brihm graduated last December. After the second day of practice Dunham and Williams continued to
split time with all running backs and receivers in getting down the timing under Suber's system, and the
routes for everyone involved.

Bethune-Cookman head coach Terry Sims usually employs the two-Quarterback approach; as a result,  
Dunham will share time with incumbent redshirt junior Akevious Williams, who has seen significant
playing time the past two seasons. In addition, Dunham will compete with Devin Black, Kyle Smith for the
job.


“We have some guys who are coming in, but, for the spring, it’ll be Akevious and Dunham,” Sims said.
“They’ll take equal reps, they’ll take a lot reps, and we’ll see which one comes out on top. They’re both very
capable.”

Dunham 6-3, 211, a dual threat quarterback started one season at Leesburg under former Head Coach
Randy Trivers and lead the Jackets to the programs first District Championship and only playoff win since
the 1992 season. He later signed with the University of Tennessee at Martin where he attended two years
before transferring to BCU.

The annual Bethune-Cookman Spring Showcase will take place Saturday, April 21, at Municipal Stadium.
