Kansas State Football: Daniel Sams moving from quarterback to wide receiver

It has been very much expected for quite some time now that Jake Waters will be the starting quarterback for the Kansas State Wildcats once the 2014 season gets rolling later this summer. With that, though, questions arose as to what they would do with their athletic backup–and former starter–Daniel Sams.

According to, that has already been decided as Sams has already made the move to wide receiver for the spring, where he is expected to remain once the season starts.

When speaking about the move, legendary head coach Bill Snyder noted that it was Sams himself that suggested the move to the outside of the offense.

“The dialogue I had with Daniel was I want you to be happy, and I want to see you on the field,” Snyder said. “He approached me about playing wide receiver, and I made my recommendations to him. I said I would certainly abide by his and give him a chance, and he wanted to try it.

While he didn’t have the success last season that he had hoped for while filling in for an injured Waters, we were able to see just how versatile and athletic Sams is, and this move could wind up paying some dividends in the end.
