AUBURN, Ala. — On Sunday, Auburn offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee assured media members that Jonathan Wallace will have a role this season. The junior may not receive many reps at quarterback, but Lashlee said the Tigers were "going to find ways for him to help this team."
At least one area where Wallace could figure prominently is on special teams, as Gus Malzahn said Tuesday that the Central alum has been working on the field goal and extra-point units.
"We've got Jonathan primarily doing that," Malzahn replied when asked who was doing the holding duties.
Wallace served as Ryan White's backup at holder last season.
Never miss a local story.
At the moment, Wallace is seeking to fend off true freshman Sean White for the third slot on the quarterback depth chart behind Nick Marshall and Jeremy Johnson.
In 14 career games (including four starts in 2012), Wallace has thrown for 744 yards and four touchdowns while completing 53.8 percent (48 of 84) of his attempts for 744 yards and four touchdowns. Wallace also has 201 career rushing yards on 60 carries.
