Days before the season opener at Tampa Bay, New Orleans Voodoo head coach Pat O’Hara will not name a starting quarterback

Incumbent Kurt Rocco appears to have an edge over newcomer Ryan Perrilloux of LSU. But, O’Hara says he won’t reveal his starter.

“It is a little top secret,” said O’Hara. Kurt came in ready this year, mentally and physically. He had a really good camp. Ryan Perrilloux can be a star in this league. He still hasn’t been in an arena yet, we haven’t practiced inside.”

The Voodoo is practicing at Tad Gormley Stadium in City Park. The club has yet to practice at its home arena, the Smoothie King Center.

Rocco battled injuries for the most of last season. He played in 11 games. He threw 107 touchdown pass in 2012. In 2013, he threw 47 touchdown pass.

New Orleans is looking for a bounce back year. The Voodoo won only 5 of 18 games last season.

New Orleans was last in the league in points allowed with 1,069.
