2013 Season Countdown: #81 Alex Swieca
Name: Alex Swieca
Weight: 210 lbs.
High school: New York (NY) Frisch
Class: Redshirt sophomore
Jersey number: #13
Last year: I did not rank Swieca. He did not see any game action.
Swieca walked on to the team as a true freshman back in 2011. He has yet to play in a game, but he did play a little bit in the spring game back in April.
With backup quarterback Russell Bellomy going down with a torn ACL in the spring, that bumps the other quarterbacks up a little bit on this list. Swieca will certainly be behind Devin Gardner and probably even freshman Shane Morris, but options are thin beyond those two. If nothing else, I would expect Swieca to have a pretty big hand in running the scout team while the aforementioned guys and presumed #3 quarterback Brian Cleary get reps with the regular offense.
Prediction: Scout team quarterback, perhaps a few snaps in garbage time
