After strong start, Woodside competing to keep San Antonio Commanders quarterback job

February 13, 2019

Quarterback Logan Woodside’s voice was clear on the CBS broadcast as the San Antonio Commanders approached the line of scrimmage for a snap on Saturday.

“Here we go. Here we go. Here we go,” Woodside shouted.

A fiery leader and a surprise starter in Week 1 for the Commanders, Woodside needed to push tempo to stay ahead of the Alliance of American Football’s abbreviated play clock. He threw for 255 yards to help San Antonio to a 15-9 win against the San Diego Fleet in the Alamodome.

Those watching on television had a glimpse into Woodside’s calls at the line of scrimmage and could hear his energized reactions to successful plays, including at least one emphatic “That’s what I’m talking about.”

Woodside completed 18 of 36 passes with a pair of interceptions, though three of his misses were drops.

Commanders coach Mike Riley said Woodside “played well” and “made some big plays in the end that were the difference-maker in the game.” But Riley did not commit to Woodside remaining the starter for Sunday’s game against the Orlando Apollos.
