from the wires of the Associated Press, www.news-record.com and I would be sure that Jim Young was on top of this one as well:

RALEIGH (AP) — Daniel Evans will be the starting quarterback when North Carolina State faces Florida State this Saturday. That’s from Wolfpack coach Tom O’Brien.

Evans replaces Harrison Beck, who is out with a separated shoulder.

Evans was the starter in N.C. State’s last victory over a Bowl Subdivision team, leading the Wolfpack to a win over the Seminoles last season.

Evans began the season as the starter, but was replaced in the second week by Beck, who had started the last four games.

Beck was injured during the third quarter of last weekend’s loss to Louisville. Evans relieved him and threw for the Wolfpack’s only touchdown against the Cardinals.
*****Daniel Evans is the son of Johnny Evans who played high school football here in Guilford County at High Point Andrews for the Red Raiders. Johnny is now involved with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes(FCA) and works with Gary Hahn as the analyst for the Wolfpack football broadcasts on radio. I bet the Pack wishes they had Johnny back there as QB and punter again. After N.C. State, Evans was the backup quaterback and punter for the Cleveland Browns when QB Brian Sipe was the man.*****
