Dunedin quarterback Anthony Diviney is back at the school after attempting to transfer to Clearwater Central Catholic this summer.

Falcons coach Max Smith said Diviney re-joined the team last week and was with the team during today's first practice.

Diviney planned on enrolling at CCC but was not allowed because the school does not accept senior transfers. Last year, Diviney threw for 842 yards and three touchdowns.

He won't be the automatic starter, though, according to Smith. The first-year Dunedin coach said that the competition for the Falcons' No. 1 quarterback position will be open throughout the preseason.

"(Diviney's) battling to get his spot back because he missed a lot of workouts in the summer," Smith said.

A pair of juniors, Briggs Noun and Mack Benson, are challenging Diviney to be the Falcons' starting quarterback. Noun was the Falcons' quarterback through the majority of the 7-on-7 season over the summer. Benson will have to play catch up as he is on vacation and won't be available for Dunedin's opening week of practice.
