COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

A change is coming at the quarterback spot for the Columbus Lions this week. Mason Espinosa is back in as the starter in their matchup against the High Country Grizzlies.  

Darren Daniel won't make the trip because of a prior commitment this weekend, so Espinosa's the guy. He had a rough outing in his last start with four turnovers in the opener against the Jacksonville Sharks. Espinosa was benched in favor of Daniel following that game.

That's in the past and he's ready for redemption this week against the Grizzlies.

“It could be in the back of your mind, but it's football,” Espinosa said. “Once you go out there and take the first snap, you realize you've been doing it for 20 years and you just go out there and play ball and have fun.”

Saturday, the Lions are on the road at High Country. Kickoff set for 7 p.m.
