San Jose State's David Fales primary reason for strong start

Kyle Terada-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Junior quarterback David Fales is on pace to break multiple San Jose State records after his strong start to the season.

The San Jose St. Spartans are off to a strong start this season, going 3-1 in the first four weeks. Their lone loss came against the Stanford Cardinal by three points, a team now ranked No. 8 in the nation. Many players have contributed in big ways this year, but quarterback David Fales has stolen the headlines with his solid play and big numbers.

Through four games, Fales has completed 95 of his 132 pass attempts (72%) for 1,124 yards and nine touchdowns. He has thrown just two interceptions and has done a nice job distributing the ball to all of his teammates, connecting for touchdown scores with five different receivers. All of these numbers are on pace to break school records, and most importantly, the Spartans are playing well with Fales under-center.

Here is what head coach Mike MacIntyre had to say about his junior quarterback to Jon Wilner of Mercury News.

"We thought he'd be good, but you never know until a guy takes a hit and you can see how he responds," SJSU coach Mike MacIntyre said. "He got laid out hard in the Stanford game on the eighth or ninth play and came back to huddle and completed his next pass. I thought, 'OK, we've got something.' "

Fales and the Spartans will look to pick up their fourth-straight win this weekend as they hit the road to take on Navy. Kickoff is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. ET on CBS Sports Network.
