09/04/13 - Scouting the Virginia passing game: Watford, making his first appearance in a collegiate game since 2011, completed just over 50 percent of his passes for 114 yards and a touchdown. He needs to be more efficient, but the pass protection was above reproach as Virginia didn't allow any sacks. - The Sports Xchange
09/04/13 - Scouting the Virginia running game: The offense installed by new coordinator Steve Fairchild emphasizes the run, but Virginia must improve on the 2.6-yard average per carry logged in the 19-16 win over BYU. QB David Watford carried the ball 10 times, and look for that trend to continue, though coach Mike London said he'd like to see Watford get out of bounds or slide rather than take the risks he does in the name of extra yardage. - The Sports Xchange
08/12/13 - Redshirt sophomore David Watford will be Virginia's starting quarterback. Coach Mike London said Monday that he and new offensive coordinator Steve Fairchild called Watford and Greyson Lambert in on Sunday night and told them that Watford would be the starter. Watford played sparingly as a true freshman two seasons ago, completing just 30 of 74 passes for 346 yards with three touchdowns and four interceptions. He redshirted last year when Michael Rocco and Phillip Sims shared the job in a revolving door situation that London pledged not to repeat this season. "It's his, and that's the decision. He has to perform, but he doesn't have to look over his shoulders," London said of the 6-foot-2, 200-pound Watford.
Watford was listed as the Cavaliers' No. 1 quarterback after spring practice, and his experience and mobility as a duel-threat were factors in the decision. London said Watford also received the most votes when the Cavaliers did balloting to pick members of the team's leadership counsel for this season. "I think that's part of it," he said of Watford's mobility, noting that the offense being installed does provide opportunities for the quarterback to run. "That's a skill set that he has." - AP Sports
