Ty Storey – Noteworthy
Tyson Helton says he’s going into his first spring practice as Western Kentucky’s coach with a blank depth chart. “When we had our team meeting Sunday, that was one thing I made clear,” Helton said Monday. “I said, ‘Hey, there are no starters.’ I said, ‘I know there are a lot of men who have played a lot of football, but you’ve got to go earn your job every day, or you’re going to get passed up.’ … “Every man has to go win a job in spring football.” Helton said that includes the quarterback position, where the Hilltoppers recently added Arkansas graduate transfer Ty Storey.

Storey won’t be participating when WKU takes the field Tuesday for its first spring practice at 4:30 p.m. That workout, like each of the Toppers’ following 14 over the next five weeks, is open to the public at Houchens-Smith Stadium. The graduate student Storey will become eligible March 18 when WKU’s second bi-term of its spring semester begins. He’ll start classes that day and then go through his first practice March 19. “He’s going to have to wait a week before he can get started,” Helton said of Storey. “But he’ll get plenty of time over the remaining four weeks.” Storey appeared in 14 career games for Arkansas, including 10 last year, with nine starts. For the 2018 season, he completed 143 of his 250 pass attempts (57.2 percent) for 1,584 yards with 11 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. – BG Daily News
