Marshall Football: Quarterback Frohnapfel to Transfer

Marshall backup quarterback Blake Fonnapfel announced via Twitter today that he will transfer.

In three seasons with the Thundering Herd, the rising redshirt junior quarterback threw for 306 yards, five touchdowns, and two interceptions. Frohnapfel's most extensive action occurred during Marshall's 2012 season finale at East Carolina. Appearing in relief of starting quarterback Rakeem Cato, Frohnapfel completed 12 of 15 passes for 101 yards, one touchdown, and one interception. He also rushed for 62 yards, including a 51 yard touchdown scamper.

With Frohnapfel's exit, Marshall does not posses a quarterback besides Cato that has played a college snap. Backup options include rising redshirt sophomore Gunnar Holcombe, rising redshirt freshman Kevin Anderson, and Cole Garvin, who enrolled at Marshall on Monday after graduating from high school a semester early.

Equipped with an undergraduate degree, Frohapfel can transfer to a Football Bowl Subdivision school and play immediately, given that the institution offers a graduate program not available at Marshall.
