Arizona: Will contend for the top quarterback role in fall camp after a true freshman season marked by some serious on-the-job training... One of a handful of true freshman QB starters in Division I-A in 2003... Finished with UA freshman records in yardage (1501), completions (121) and attempts (237), plus posted a decent .511 percentage... Thrust into the role in the fourth game, starting the second half at Purdue, then all the rest of the games... Had season-high 276 yards (14-29) against TCU but suffered three interceptions (among 15 for the year), had season-high 35 attempts (18 completions, 128 yards) at WSU, and had season-high 21 completions (32 attempts, 252 yards) at ASU... Sacked nine times, trimming his net rushing total to 33 yards on 31 tries... Big arm... No UA player took to the winter and off-season conditioning programs more than Heavner...
