London Called: Junior Set to Replace J.T. Barrett

Junior quarterback Chase London will start for the #6 Rider Raiders Friday night in Corinth against Lake Dallas, making his first career start in place of the injured J.T. Barrett.

London has completed 8 of 13 passes in limited action this season, for 103 yards, no touchdowns or interceptions.

He was 7-of-9 for 94 yards last Friday night at Fort Worth Brewer after Barrett suffered his injury, which turned out to be a torn right ACL and lateral meniscus.

Speaking at practice Thursday, London said the goals for this season have not changed, that Rider still plans to play for and win a state championship.

He said he has familiarity with his receivers going back to training camp.

He also can call on experience he gained at the State 7-on-7 Tournament, when he replaced Barrett as the Ohio State commit took part in the Elite 11 camp in California.

London said Barrett will help him on the sidelines, giving him feedback between plays.
